College athletes -- Education;
Intercollegiate athletics was born in 1852 when Harvard and Yale competed in a boat race (Rudolph, 1990/1962). Over the course of the ensuing two decades, intercollegiate athletics experienced tremendous growth as college teams began competing against each other in baseball, football, and other sports. The first baseball game was played between Amherst and Williams in 1859, and the first football game was played between Princeton and Rutgers in 1869 (Rudolph). These first athletic contests conjure up images of purity and of college students who played their respective sports out of a love for the game and out of a desire to bring recognition to their institutions.
