Determining Factors for Attrition Rates Among Football Players at a Midwestern Division III School
Every year, the incoming class of freshman football players at a small midwestern Division III school is around 50-75 players. And every year, the players from the class decrease until they are seniors and there are only 10-20 of the original class still playing football and still at the school. The purpose of this study is to explore the various reasons for football players to leave the program and why they leave the school. A series of interviews with players that have left the program were conducted. The results of the qualitative interviewing process to determine factors for leaving include: injury, faith, disagreement with coaches, and not making enough friends. The findings reveal information that may help keep more players from leaving the college and the football program.
