    Have you ever wondered about the athletes who push their bodies to their physical and mental limits or the coaches who guide them?  This semester course will cover widely recognized sports such as football and baseball as well as lesser known sports like mountain climbing and surfing.  Readings will include contemporary sports articles from popular magazines and newspapers, famous sports poems, non-fiction and fiction texts.  This course will require students to choose sports novels to read independently.
