Reply to "What comes after college athletics and loss of identity"

In my small sampling of older friends of my kids, who've competed in three different sports, the ones who struggle are not those who spend four years in their sport and graduate to being a NARP (non-athlete regular person), but those who are forced out, usually by injury, before they are ready.   The four-year athletes get the sash at graduation and, by and large, are ready to move on.  The gymnast who blows out her knee at 17 and the swimmer with the shoulder injury at 19, etc. are the ones who have the more difficult time.
