The unique demands of balancing rigorous athletic commitments and academic responsibilities present a challenge for college football players. There were three purposes of this study. The first purpose of this study sought to determine if there is a relationship between time management behavior and academic performance among college students. The second purpose of this study was to determine whether participation in collegiate football affected the time management behavior of college students, and the third purpose of this study was to determine if participation in collegiate football affected the academic performance among college students. Participants in the study were a convenience sample of 140 undergraduates at a small private Christian college in central Arkansas. The Time Management Behavior scale (TMBS) is a 32-item, five-point Likert-type scale that measures the extent to which time management behaviors are used. The time management behaviors that the TMBS measures are goal and priority setting, mechanics of time management, and preference. These factors are rated on a scale ranging from (0) seldomly true to (4) very true. Academic performance was collected and analyzed from self-reported GPAs from the participants. Data analysis included descriptive and inferential analysis. Findings from this study will contribute to a deeper understanding of the challenges faced by student-athletes in collegiate football programs. Ultimately, the study aimed to provide valuable insights that can enhance the overall student-athlete experience and promote success both on and off the field.
