The paper has added to the literature by providing new empirical evidence on the labor market effects of participating in high school athletics using the 1990 wave of the National Longitudinal Surveys of Youth (NLSY) data set which allowed us to examine several measures of work attainment and provided a rich set of control variables. The major finding of this study is that former high school athletes are more likely to be in jobs that are associated with better labor market outcomes than their nonathlete counterparts.
