Fueling Victory in the NCAA Football Playoffs

Heading into this football season, 67% of Power 5 conference universities employed at least one full-time sports dietitian and had for at least three years. Currently, 72% of those programs employ at least two full-time sports dietitians, a long road from only eight full-time positions in 2004 when Bragg got her start. There has long been an understanding in sports dietetics that by doing a great job to establish the importance of nutrition on performance within a program, you are thereby teaching the next generation of coaches to value fueling as well. An established bit of advice to sports dietitians regarding growth advises ‘the best way to get your next job, is to be great at the one you already have’. The work these four dietitians have done within their respective programs continues to lay the groundwork for more sports dietitians to find their next job and make their mark in collegiate athletics.
