UF Professor talks about Superbowl players’ mindset

By

The moment many football fans from across the country have waited for comes this Sunday evening. But while most of the attention during the superbowl usually focuses on the game itself or the interesting ads played during the commercial breaks, it can be easy to forget that the game itself is the culmination of efforts by players on both teams.  And on gameday the players are in a unique mindset few people off the field know about.. Florida’s 89.1, WUFT-FM’s Chris Peralta spoke with UF Applied Physiology and Kinesiology Professor Christopher Janelle about this mindset, what the meaning of the game is for the players, and how they perform under the immense pressure of millions of viewers watching their every move.
