Petrie, Trent A.
Journal of College Student Development, v34 n6 p418-21 Nov 1993
Examined relative influence of academic and nonacademic factors on academic performance of college football players. Findings from 98 student-athletes revealed that, for black college football players, only social support was related to fall term grade point average. For white player, both American College Testing (ACT) scores and negative life stress were significant predictors of grade point average. (Author/NB)
