Dabo’s Answer

If there's need for you to go for a degree before becoming a footballer, I personally think the best degree to go for is Bsc Human kinetics .

Sam’s Answer

Hi Juan,

This tends to vary wildly depending on the individuals. I agree with Dabo's answer that there are certain degrees with a focus on body mechanics which may benefit their football abilities but from my experience, few people go that route.

Choosing a college major is hard and definitely a very personal decision so it really comes down to:
1. What are you passionate about? To be fair, this is a very difficult question to answer at ~20 years old so I recommend exploring different fields as early as possible in your college career.
2. What are you good at? Typically this is correlated with what you are passionate about, but it makes sense to go down a path of something you know you can be successful in.
3. What do you have time for? This is a question I bring up specifically because collegiate football is a huge time commitment so pursuing pre-med or Computer Science is DEFINITELY doable, but it will be difficult and you should be sure that is the route you'd like to go down.

John’s Answer

This is a really great question. It is important to understand that the degree you choose to pursue should be based on what motivates you the best or you are very interested in. There is no set area of education that is mainly geared towards a football player. Think about what things in your life that really excite you and motivate you. Chances are there will be area of education that will allow you to pursue that interest further. Maybe studying nutrition to really help you learn what things to eat to help you perform best on the field. Or maybe studying kinesiology to understand your body and how to get the best out of your athletic performance. It could be sports psychology to understand human behavior in a given sport. Pick what motivates you and follow your passion.
