"In Student Athletes: Merging Academics and Sports, former professor Frank Jozsa paints a universal picture by exploring the many aspects in the life of student athletes over a fifteen year span. Jozsa does a remarkable job of bringing to light the daily approach that is required of male and female players and breaking them into academic and sports categories. As a result, readers get a sense of the three prong approach that many colleges and universities across the country strive for with their athletic programs.

Academic accountability, on field performance, and service to community are the subsets of a three prong approach that provides readers of the book with data and other information regarding the financial, behavioral, and influential aspects of student athletes across the country on schools' campuses. I certainly recommend you take a glimpse into the lives of student athletes through the eyes of Jozsa and from opinions, suggestions, and recommendations he received from valued colleagues in the field."

Applying concepts, data, and other information from various sources in the literature when and where appropriate, the book reveals and examines the behavior, contribution, and impact of student athletes (SAs) on campuses of American colleges and universities. It highlights, in part, SAs' progress academically while they devoted time and resources to participate in one or more of their schools' individual and/or team sports in Division I, II, and/or III of the National Collegiate Athletic Association, or in the National Association of Intercollegiate Athletics and/or National Junior College Athletic Association.
