The Relations of the Selection of Sport Heroes to Age, Sex, and Race.
Blankenbaker, Joe; Hook, Linda
This study investigated the relationship of the choice of sport heroes to age, gender, and race in students enrolled in elementary, high school, and college classes. There was a strong relationship between race and sex and the selection of sport heroes. Age was related to the selection of heroes by the type of heroes selected by each group. Younger people chose charismatic athletes while the older subjects chose heroes of the type who reinforce the values of American society. (JD)
