Through the Earholes of Our Youth by Ken
Burger (Editor), David Lissy (Photographer).
Beyond the scores: Ken Burger's first book is
about real life! In between all the games and stuff, every now
and then Ken has written an article about the experiences he had
with sports when he was a kid. A great deal of it concerns the
struggles we all go through and where sports fits into our lives
as young people...
From the Author: The focus for this book
emerged as I pored over a decade's worth of sports columns-more
than 200 a year-and discovered that the ones I liked most
reflected personal thoughts and feelings. A lot of it has to do
with my youth and my kids- the personal stuff I've written about
over the years. It's about real life. Some of the columns are
about my own kids. Some deal with alcoholism and other things
I've personally gone through. I've had people tell me that the
only reason they pick up the sports page is to read a column
that will draw them into something beyond the scores. I look at
writing as a journey through all this stuff.

Sport Psychology focuses on the study of the psychological factors
which affect sport and physical activity. Students specializing in sport
psychology have the opportunity to take departmental courses covering
topics such as aggression, social facilitation, motivation, attitudes,
and personality as they relate to the broad interpretation of physical
activity. A concentration in psychophysiology is available, focusing on
the cognitive state of skilled athletic performance and exercise/mental
health issues of the aging brain. In addition, supportive course work is
taken in the Departments of Psychology, Sociology, Special Education,
Human Development, Education, Computer Science and Statistics.
Applicants for the program should have had undergraduate training in
sport and physical education, as well as educational experiences in
psychology or a related area.
