One Sport Athletes


Is specializing in one sport beneficial to athletes? According to ESPN, 95% of NFL quarterbacks surveyed played at least 2 sports in high school, 70% played at least 3 sports. Playing multiple sports increases athleticism and decreases risk of injury.

Another stat – 85% of the football recruiting class from Alabama, Notre Dame, and Ohio State were multi-sport athletes. Encourage your kids to play as many sports as they can/would like.
