This study looks at the changing perception of literacy and building connections between the multiple literacies in which freshman football student-athletes do and will participate in at the college level. Data was collected during a summer literacy program created by the researcher and taught by the athletic department learning specialist.

The presentation will include the background of the study, analysis of the data, and the final results. Second, the implications for incoming freshman football student-athletes will be discussed along with how the results were used to modify the current literacy program that is currently in the follow-up stages. Lastly, the presentation will conclude with how this data can help rethink summer bridge programs for football student-athletes. The presentation will include a PowerPoint, video and will be 40 minutes long with 20 minutes available for questions. Handouts will be provided.
