Psychology has never been a major research interest of
mine. However, because I coached college wrestling for
so many years, it was probably inevitable that I would overseee a
number of independent studies and research projects for students who
are interested in sports. I also did an occasional guest lecture
in a sports psychology course taught by a faculty member in our Sports
Studies program. My research projects ranged from studying
things that affect athletic performance to things that affect
perceptions of athletes, but most of them never made it into
professional publications or conference presentations. A list of
a few publications that
resulted from this work is presented below.
