The objective of this study was to determine if a relationship exists between the independent variables academic concept, social concept, and high school sports participation and the dependent variable academic achievement for African-American male teens between the ages of 14 and 19 who participated in high school sports. Sixty three student athletes attending a suburban Georgia high school participated in the study. A non-experimental, quantitative, correlation design was utilized. A statistically significant relationship between the following variables was found: high school sports participation and academic achievement; academic concept and academic achievement; academic concept and social concept. There was no statistically significant relationship found between the following variables: academic achievement and social concept; high school sports participation and academic concept; and high school sports and social concept.
