Created on Thursday, 11 March 2010 Written by Steve

The jock is usually portrayed as a big, dumb, walking pile of testosterone. Although some jocks are capable of higher thought, these often disguise whatever mental abilities they have with over-the-top machismo and copious application of alcohol. The jock's status on campus is directly related to his athletic ability, with star athletes receiving special treatment from students, faculty, and staff.

Extracurricular Activities
Most of the jock's extracurricular activities revolve around sports. Even when he's not practicing, he spends most of his time with other members of his team. They drink together, watch professional sports together, pick on nerds together, and even shower together.

The Numbers
