Journal of College Student Personnel, v28 n4 p293-97 Jul 1987
Measured career attitude maturity of football and basketball scholarship athletes (N=122) and nonathlete male college students (N=80) using the Career Maturity Inventory. Found that athletes were significantly lower in career attitude maturity than nonathletes, with 48% expecting to play professional sports, compared to an anticipated 2%. Found no significant differences between black and white athletes. (Author/ABL)
