A s we end the first year of the new century, the C. ".. continues to prosper. Our -. topped
2,001 for the first time this t with 1,925 undergraduates and 232 students pursuing master's and
doctoral degrees. In addition to more students, we are progressing on other fronts. We have hired 10
more faculty. Several new programs are now in j swing, including a Master of Public Health
(MPH) degree and new Ph.D. specializations in Athletic 7 _:... Medicine; Biomechanics;
Natural Resource Recreation; Therapeutic Recreation; and Tourism. And we are looking forward to another record
year of securing grants and contracts to support our research activities. Last year we passed the $2 million mark.
With the grants and contracts in the pipeline, this -, be even better.

It's clear that our faculty continues to be highly productive, and each of our departments is highly competitive with
its peers around the country. A recent production and quality survey of 15 major universities .' .' likes of
Illinois, Maryland, Minnesota, Ohio State, Texas, and North Carolina) shows that the Department of Exercise and
Sport Sciences is ranked in the top three and the Departments of Health Science Education and Recreation, Parks
and Tourism are in the top five counterparts at these prestigious institutions. The factors measured in
this study included credit hours and degrees produced, student quality, scholarly production of f-. ',. dollar
amount of grants and contracts awarded to f. ',. and fund raising from alumni and friends.

Another major milestone for the C. ". this academic year will be the conclusion of"It's Performance That Counts,"
the University's five-year capital campaign. As you may .."' our C. ". campaign goal was $2.1 ". To date,
we have $3.3 million in the bank! For a -.. ". a number of graduates (about 9,000), most of whom have
not been out of school very long (47% graduated since 1990, 70% since 1980), we have done remarkably -. "

Much of our fund-raising success is due to the t. '-. of our C. ". Campaign Committee, chaired by Frank
Dempsey (BS 1950) and .'- mr.' by I' Frederick, our Development C'O- .. We are seeing the dividends of these
n. *. For example, when the campaign began, we were providing our students with $5,500 in scholarships and fel-
lowships. This year that amount was more than $60,000. :' like a -.. "- race, we must go -" out as we
approach the finish line. We -' have important unfunded opportunities. With a strong stride and a steady focus,
we can come close to almost $4

This year's Performance, edited by Assistant Dean Dr. Bertha Cato, is the best yet. In it you "find updated infor-
mation about the C. ". -faculty international research involvements and presentations delivered around the globe.
You read about students who were selected as University Scholars and who were recipients of HHP

As you see, your C. ". and its students, faculty and graduates are performing ; -. Hope you enjoy this
edition. Please let us hear from you.

The College of Health & Human Performance

Expands Involvement in the International Arena

by Dr Bertha Cato and Laura A. Schmid

we are
that we live
in an age of
tion where
al borders
are no
This new age
has provided
those of us in the
academic world
new opportunities
and challenges.
Academic administrators
and faculty are encouraged
to expand their goals to include
international research and
involvement and provide
opportunities for students to
acquire international under-
standing and exposure. Never
have faculty and students been
challenged to master navigating
through a multicultural world
as they are today.
Universities today cannot
meet students' educational
needs, nor can they be among
the best institutions in the coun-
try, without achieving a global
perspective. Because the UF
faculty and administrators
believe this so strongly,
President Charles Young and
Provost David Colbum have set
the "globalization" of the
University as a primary goal.
They have requested that all
colleges identify strategies to
achieve this goal within the next
five vears.

As noted in the dean's greet-
ings, the College of Health and
Human Performance has already
internationalized many of its
activities. A key component of
the College's mission is "... to
provide nationally and interna-
tionally recognized programs
that focus on helping people to
protect, maintain, and improve
their health, fitness, and quali-
ty of life." Although there is
still much to be done, here are
some of the College's approach-
es toward "globalization":

Hiring International Faculty
The following international
faculty have been hired Dr.
John Chow (biomechanics,
China); Dr. Heather Hausenblas
(sport psychology, Canada); Dr.
Christiaan Leeuwenburgh (exer-
cise physiology, Netherlands);
Dr. Heather Gibson (tourism,
England); Dr. Lori Pennington-
Gray (tourism, Canada); Dr.
Brijesh Thapa (tourism, Nepal);
and Dr. Jiunn-Jye Sheu (epi-
demiology and bio-statistics,

Encouraging Faculty

International Organizations
served two, 4-year terms (1985-
1993) as President of the
International Society of Sport
Psychology. DR. WILLIAM
CHEN (HSE) served (1999-2004)
as the Vice-President for
Technical Development for the
North American Regional
Office/International Union for
Health Promotion and
Education. DR. BERTHA CATO
served as the Director for the
International Council for
Health, Physical Education,

Recreation, Sports and Dance -
Leisure and Recreation
Commission Symposium for the
42nd World Congress held in
Cairo, Egypt. She is a member
of the current commission
symposium for the upcoming

Faculty Research
Director of the Clinical Exercise
Physiology Lab, has investigat-
ed osteoporosis in organ transplant
recipients. His research, funded
by the American Heart
Association and Florida
Department of Health, has led
the way in pioneering the use of
resistance exercise training,
along with selected anti-osteo-
porosis drugs, in the prevention
and reversal of transplant osteo-
porosis. Previously, there was
no known therapy to stimulate
new bone growth in transplant
patients who become osteo-
porotic due to chronic treatment
with anti-rejection drugs. Dr.
Braith designed a therapeutic
regimen to prevent post-trans-
plant osteoporosis. This
research was presented in
with researchers from Spain and
Italy, conducted research on
mitochondrial deletions and aging
and on mitochondrial DNA
damage and oxidant production.
A component of Dr.
Leeuwenburgh's research was

4 SPRING 2002

removing segments of mito-
chondrial DNA to see if that
might partly explain the aging
process. They are also study-
ing how damage to mitochon-
drial DNA by oxidants that
occurs with age may contribute
to a decline in energy produc-
tion. The researchers hope to
determine the causes of aging
so that targeted interventions
can be developed. The National
Institutes of Health funded this
study. This research has been
presented at the Universities of
assistant professor in HSE, has
research projects underway in
TAIWAN. In one of these studies,
he is using structural equation
modeling to construct and com-
pare the dietary behavior models of
sixth graders in rural and urban
areas of Taiwan. Structural equa-
tion modeling is an advanced
multivariate statistical method
that helps scientists to identify
interrelationships between mul-
tiple factors in a study. Some of
the questions he and his
Taiwanese co-investigators hope
to answer include what the
associations are among socio-
economic status, environmental
factors, psychosocial factors and
high fat/sugar intake, as well as
what differences exist between
rural and urban children on a
high fat/sugar intake behav-
ioral model. This study is fund-
ed by the Department of Health
of Taiwan.
is pursuing research regarding
the experiences of solo women trav-
elers. This involves a cross-cul-
tural study looking at women

from the UK and the US. The
work is being done in collabora-
tion with Fiona Jordan
Cheltenham from Gloucester
Institute. The team interviewed
AUSTRALIAN solo women travel-
ers and will compare these to
the experiences of American
women. When asked what are
the global implications of this
study, Dr. Gibson noted that
they introduced RPT faculty
and students to the wider
leisure studies field.
GRAY'S (RPT) research takes us
to CANADA; she has investigated
the relationship between a person's
cohort and their preference for
travel. The Canadian Tourism
Commission provided the fund-
ing and data. Her findings sug-
gested that the Silent
Generation (those bom between
1925 and 1943) had preferences
for first class accommodations
when they traveled. Baby
boomers (those bom between
1944 and 1964) were less likely
to prefer museums and art gal-
leries than other generations,
and this preference was declin-
ing over time. In addition, Baby
Boomers and Xers (those born
between 1965 and 1981) were
more interested in nature-based
travel and this trend is continu-
ing. Dr. Pennington-Gray stated
that "if preferences are influ-
enced by a person's cohort, then
we as leisure services providers
will have a better method of
predicting future travel," which
has global implications.
out research on mechanical venti-
lation-induced diaphragmatic atro-
phy, which was funded by the
National Institutes of Health.
Dr. Malcolm Jackson of the

University of Liverpool School
of Medicine served as a consult-
ant. Problems in weaning
patients from mechanical venti-
lation (MV) occur in a large
number of cases. Strong evi-
dence exists to show that MV-
induced respiratory muscle
injury contributes significantly
to these difficulties in weaning.
DR. POWERS' research improves
our understanding of the mech-
anisms responsible for MV-
induced diaphragmatic injury,
which is an essential first step
toward developing clinical
strategies to oppose the deleteri-
ous effects of mechanical venti-
lation on respiratory muscles.
He notes that failure to wean
patients from mechanical venti-
lation is a worldwide problem,
thus emphasizing the impor-
tance of developing clinical
measures to reduce the incidence
of this problem across the globe.
Dr. Brijesh Thapa (RPT)
conducted a study regarding
tourism issues, concerns, and chal-
lenges in NEPAL. This investiga-
tion, done in collaboration with
the Nepal Tourism Board, was
funded by the College and
Department of Recreation, Parks
and Tourism. It included sam-
pling tour operators, tourists,
policymakers, and host resi-
dents. Dr. Thapa conducted per-
sonal interviews with prominent
policymakers, tourism entrepre-
neurs, and tourists in Nepal.
Recommendations were suggest-
ed to the Nepal Tourism Board
and the Ministry for Tourism
and Civil Aviation. Dr. Thapa's
research supported the premise
that the potential to expand
tourism in Nepal to generate
more income, employment, and
other benefits is enormous.

Promoting International
Most of HHP faculty have
presented at least one interna-
tional paper in the past five
years, and some have been far
more active. For example, DR.
BERTHA CATO, Assistant Dean,

legal status of logos and trademarks
ofNative Americans to the


International Sports Business
Conference in October 2001.
Her research found that the fed-
eral district court withdrew the
trademark protection from the
NFL's Washington Redskins and
the NCAA discourages the use
of any Native American names
as a mascot.
SHAEFFER (RPT) shared the
podium with DR. HEATHER
GIBSON (RPT) to present her
research on older women and
leisure during a conference in
2001. Their presentation focused
on a retirement-aged women
project, which looks at the
leisure activities and ethics of
women 55 and older who reside
in Florida. DRS. ASHTON-
delivered two presentations at a
conference in FREMANTLE,
AUSTRALIA. One presentation
was titled Empowerment and
resistance through competitive
wheelchair sport. Specifically,
the presentation focused on
the role and meaning of
wheelchair sport in the lives
of women paralympic athletes.
The second presentation conver-
sation was with retirement-aged
women about leisure and life. Drs.
Ashton and Gibson also deliv-
ered a version of the presenta-
tion at the World Leisure
Congress in BILBOA, SPAIN in
July 2000.
GIBSON (RPT) have been very
active on the international front.
This two-year period also
included presentations in
(June 2001) and GLASGOW,
SCOTLAND (July 2000) at the

British Leisure Research
Association Conference. In July
(RPT Chair) delivered a presen-
tation titled An international look
at therapeutic recreation education
at the 6th International
Symposium on Therapeutic
Recreation. The international
conference was held in TAMPA,
presented research findings
about the role of cardiac rehabili-
tation in heart failure and the role
of cardiac transplantation in heart
transplantation at a cardiology
conference in RICCIONE, ITALY
and at the University of
Bologna in PARMA, ITALY in
November 2001. Dr. Braith's
research laboratory has pio-
neered utilization of resistance
exercise training combined with
selected anti-osteoporosis drugs
in the prevention and reversal
of transplant osteoporosis.
(RPT) delivered a presenta-
tion on segmentation ofout-
door recreationists: A compari-
son of recreationists' excepta-
tions of experience satisfaction
across activities and socio-
demographic and trip charac-
teristics at the International
Conference on Monitoring
and Management of Visitor
Flows in Recreational and
Protected Areas, in VIENNA,
AUSTRIA in January 2002.
His research explored the
levels of satisfaction of vari-
ous segments of outdoor
recreationists and the nature
of relationships between
various customer satisfac-
tion attributes and overall
satisfaction. This model of

customer satisfaction may
be used in international set-
tings that include the same

FRANCE in July 2001 his research
on evaluation of an innovative
tobacco education program on
tobacco knowledge, attitudes, inten-
tion, and behavior among elemen-
tary school students in four north
central Florida counties. Results
suggested that the program was
effective in improving students'
knowledge, attitudes, and inten-
tions toward discontinuing the
use of tobacco products. He
also co-chaired two sessions at
this conference: one on health
behavior research-modeling,

Partnership Course and Field
Conference (May-June, 2001).
Dr. Robert Weiler also presented
a paper. The conference focused
on international health educa-
tion and involved visiting
health agencies in Germany and
Belgium to exchange information
related to health education,

promotion, programs, and prac-
tice. In addition, visits to gov-
ernmental agencies provided an
overview of German healthcare
systems. Drs. Weiler and Noland
traveled with faculty and stu-
dents from the College of Public
Health at the University of South
Florida and the College of
Education at Southern Illinois
Associate Dean, provided pre-
implementation training for the
Department of Defense in
Europe and Pacific areas for
high school physical education
teachers. The purpose of train-
ing was to provide high school
teachers instructional strategies
to enable students to achieve
DoDEA Physical Education
Performance Standards. The
pre-implementation sessions
were held in GARMISCH,
He also gave a presentation at
the XVII World Conference on
Health Promotion and Health
Education in Paris, France on

wellness with youth.

Developing International
Exchange Programs
Currently, the College has
two formal student exchange
programs. One is with the
University of Darmstadt
(Germany) where 10 students
and two faculty from ESS

study for 10 days in GERMANY
every other year, and in alter-
nate years, 10 students and sev-
eral faculty from Darmstadt
spend 10 days studying at UF
During the summer of 2000,
with the students to DARMSTADT,
GERMANY. The program is fully
supported by a German busi-
nessman associated with
Darmstadt and the program has
been in operation for 10 years.
The other program, established
in 1998, is with RPT and the
University of Western Sydney in
SYDNEY, AUSTRIA. It is for under-
graduate students specializing
in travel, tourism, or commer-
cial recreation. Six students
from RPT have attended UWS
and seven students from UWS
have attended UF-RPT.

Recruiting International
Currently, 53 international
students are enrolled in the
College, which breaks down to
20 undergraduates, 17 master's,
and 16 Ph.D. students. These
students come from the
Ascension Islands, Australia,
Brazil, Canada, Finland, Hong
Kong, Israel, India, Jamaica,
Japan, Korea, Netherlands,
Poland, Spain, Sweden,
Thailand, Turkey, and the
United Kingdom.


r el back to an era

when air-condition-

f ing and paved high-

ways don't exist. In

this time and place, mosqui-

toes the size of steamboats

cruise the dusk, and mule

wagons are the most com-
mon mode of local trans-

portation. The year is 1918

and the University of Florida

is the state of Florida's

fledgling 12-year-old univer-

sity, consisting of a handful

of gothic brick buildings

and fe\\ei than 2,ooo male

students. It \\as also in 1918

the )eai the ULnimxesilt

YMCA purchased 20 acies

of land on the noi their n

shore of Lake Wauburg for

the landmark purpose of

student recreation.

"Camp Wauburg," although
only eight miles south of cam-
pus as the crow flies, was an
adventurous half-day journey on
a sugar-sand Indian trail that
traversed the eastern rim of
Paynes Prairie. For many years,
University of Florida students
enjoyed Lake Wauburg for pic-
nicking, swimming, and outdoor
recreation. Beauty contests
(once the University went co-ed
in 1947), boating regattas, and
balmy summer fun were wel-
come diversions from the daily
grind of class and study on
Despite the popularity of the
Lake Wauburg Park, it was
closed in 1970 due to lack of
funding and deteriorating facili-
ties. Lake Wauburg was re-
opened in 1974 under the con-
trol of the College of Health and
Human Performance,
Department of Intramural
Athletics and Recreation now
known as the Division of
Recreational Sports. Funding to
support the Park was provided
by Student Government through
a reserve fee allocation matched
by University and private dona-
tions. The Park facilities were
repaired, and students again

flocked to the Lake for picnics,
swimming, and outdoor recre-
By 1982, the 72-acre Lake
Wauburg South Park, acquired
by Student Government from
the University Athletic
Association in 1963, was devel-
oped for student use. For this
purpose, the Student
Government raised $225,000 in
special request funds for the
project and the investment facili-
tated the construction of two
large pavilions, restrooms, a
boathouse, and docks. The
architecture selected for the new
structures was based on the
"Florida Cracker" tradition of
high-ceilings, hipped metal
roofs, and pole-barn construc-
tion. Both North and South
parks were operated as one
recreational facility by the
Division of Recreational Sports
and funded through Student
By the mid-1990s, the Lake
Wauburg North and South Shore
parks were providing recreation-
al opportunities to more than
70,000 visitors a year from the
University's students, faculty,
and staff. The infrastructure of
Lake Wauburg North Shore, in

particular, was under enormous
strain. Additionally, North
Shore's Cypress Lodge said to
be an old mess hall transported
to the Park from Camp Blanding
in the late 1930s had suffered
significant damage over the
years from insects and exposure
and was in desperate need of
repair. Something had to be
done, and fast. A renovation
project for North Park was initi-
ated with four critical priorities
identified: 1. Upgrade the infra-
structure, (pipes, well, and sep-
tic); 2. Build a new ADA accessi-
ble restroom closer to the swim-
ming area; 3. Remodel and ren-
ovate the Cypress Lodge; and 4.
Build a new shelter for the Park's
The North Park renovation
project began in 1998, and was
completed in 2000 at a total cost
of $770,000. The new structures
were designed to be consistent
with the 'Florida Cracker' archi-
tecture of the South Shore pavil-
ions and boathouse. The bath-
rooms are completely accessi-
ble, feature changing rooms and
showers, and use the natural
air-cooling dynamics of convec-
tion with high ceilings and a
heat-drawing cupola design.

8 SPRING 2002

A sewage treatment operation
with new pipes, lift stations and
enlarged drainage fields was
placed away from the shoreline
and a deep-water well was
drilled to accommodate water
demand. A new two-story boat-
house was constructed over the
water with decking and boat
slips below and an observation
tower above covered by a high,
hipped metal roof.
One of the most challenging
aspects of this project was the
renovation of the Cypress Lodge.
The old Lodge was, in the words
of Director Bill James, "a big
barn with a fireplace." During
renovations, all rotted wood was
replaced while preserving the
beautiful original rough cypress
paneling inside the building.
The screened porch overlooking
the lake was enclosed, and new
restrooms and an outdoor sitting
deck were constructed. Air-con-
ditioning and a full kitchen were
also installed, enabling the
Lodge to be more fully utilized
for student and staff functions
such as retreats and banquets.
The aged roof of the lodge was
replaced with a green-painted
metal roof to complete the meld-
ing of modem amenities with
traditional design.

One other development for
Lake Wauburg North Shore is
the recently completed new
Director's Residence. The old
director's house is a small,
wood-frame building nestled on
the southeast edge of the Park.
The old house was brought to
the Park in the late-1930s, possi-
bly from Camp Blanding, and it
has not weathered the decades
gracefully. The wood flooring in
some parts of the house is in
such poor condition that a for-
mer Park director actually fell
four feet to the ground below
when he sat down on the toilet
and the floor gave way beneath
him. Such events make for a col-
orful Park history, but don't lend
themselves well to acceptable
living conditions for the Park
directors. With that in mind,
College of Health and Human
Performance Dean Patrick Bird
allocated money in 2000 for the
construction of a modem
Director's Residence, which, by
the way, has cement foundations
and sub-flooring.
As Director Bill James states,
"One of the things that keeps me
excited by my job is that there is
always something going on here.
The University, College, and
Student Government are very
supportive of building and
improvement projects at Lake

Wauburg." Indeed, the new
High Ropes Course and
Climbing Wall at Lake Wauburg
South Shore are monumental
proof of point. In late 1998,
members of Student
Government enjoyed a high
ropes course experience at
another facility and were, there-
fore, very receptive when former
Division of Recreational Sports
Director M.B. Chafin and associ-
ate director Dr. Doug DeMichele,
approached them about
installing a course at Lake
Wauburg South.
In Fall of 1999, Student
Government enthusiastically
allocated $250,000 for the con-
struction of the 40-foot High
Ropes Tower and Ground
Course, completed May of 2001,
and the 50-foot Climbing Wall
which was completed late
November of 2001. Patrick Cole,
Lake Wauburg's assistant direc-
tor, believes, "The climbing wall
will provide a new dynamic
high adventure program for stu-
dent participation that is tuned
more to traditional individual,
open recreation. The High
Ropes Tower and Low-initiatives
Ground Course, however, while
still high-adventure, are focused
on group recreation and team-
building." The High Ropes
Course and Climbing Wall are
the crown
jewels of
South Shore,
joining the
Disk Golf
and boating

What's next for Lake
Wauburg? Director Bill James
envisions new sailing lockers for
the Sailing Club, remodeling the
boathouse and old restroom at
North Park, and installation of
a new Gatehouse entrance.
A swimming pool may also
be in the works. These additions
would join the existing recre-
ational opportunities that
include the ever popular water
skiing activities using the donat-
ed 2002 orange and blue Malibu
ski boat (also used by the UF Ski
Club); the pontoon boat donated
by UF Alumni and College of
Health and Human Performance
benefactor, B.K. Stevens; sailing
using the Sunfish, Hobie-Cat,
and Laser sailboats; Canoeing
and Kayaking; paddle-boating;
sand volleyball; or just plain old
sun-and-fun on the beach at
Lake Wauburg.
Not too much has changed in
the 84 years since Lake Wauburg
Park's inception. The University
of Florida boasts a diverse stu-
dent population of more than
47,000 people from all corners of
the globe and has grown to a
world class research institute
situated on more than 2,000
acres of campus. But mosqui-
toes the size of steamboats still
cruise the woodlands surround-
ing Lake Wauburg, and students
still flock to the water for recre-
ation and sport in spite of them.
As Assistant Director Patrick
Cole mused, "Really, a lot hasn't
changed, which makes Lake
Wauburg so nice. Wholesome
outdoor fun is still the empha-
sis; picnics, swimming... just
with more modem amenities."
That's the beauty of Lake
Wauburg, and we wouldn't want
to change a thing.



by Laura A. Schmid

In an interview last fall, the College of
Health and Human Performance's most
famous alumnus said, "I guess I was a type of
player that wanted to take the last shot if the
game was tied and wanted the outcome
depending on me. Didn't always work out,
but I certainly welcomed that opportunity."
While Florida Football Coach Spurrier
may not have conquered the world, he con-
quered one of the most demanding turfs in
college football, the Swamp, a place many
consider the toughest college football confer-
ence, the Southeastern Conference. He has
led the Florida Gators to six SEC titles and the
1996 National Championship. Along the way,
he has amassed a terrific list of achievements,
leading many to call him the greatest coach in
collegiate history.
The most coaching victories in
Division I-A in the first 11 seasons
at a school for the 1990-2000 decade;
SEC coach with the best win percent-
age in league games (.871, 81-12);
The only major college coach in the
20th century to win 100 games in his
first 10 years at a school;
The only SEC coach to win at least 10
games for six straight years (1993-1998);
SEC Coach with the second highest
amount of outright league champi-
onships (6);
The third most "winningest" coach
in SEC history (.815).
Steve Spurrier "brought to the football
program a winning, positive attitude for fans,
athletes, faculty, and students," said Norm
Carlson, Assistant Athletic Director of the
University Athletic Association. Carlson also
pointed out that Spurrier created a first-class
football program that wins championships,
something no coach at Florida had done
Spurrier is the only Heisman Tropy recipi-
ent to coach another Heisman Trophy recipi-
ent, Danny Wuerffel. Spurrier received his
trophy in 1966, and Wuerffel received his 30
years later, in 1996, the same year he led the
Florida Gators to the National Championship.

Yet this gridiron soldier of faith comes
from humble beginnings. The son of a
preacher man, Spurrier is the youngest of the
Rev. John Graham Spurrier, Jr. and Marjorie
Spurrier's three children. Born in Miami
Beach in 1945, he grew up living the nomadic
but loving life of a preacher's family. His
father was called to serve congregations in the
East Tennessee mountains, landing in Johnson
City for Steve Spurrier's high school years. It
was here that his athletic career took off. A
three-sport star in high school, Spurrier
excelled in baseball and basketball long before
he became a football star. His baseball team
won two state championships, and he was
point guard for his basketball team.
Spurrier was courted by colleges all over
the country, but decided he wanted to play in
the SEC, which he felt was the best conference.
The University of Florida was one of the late-
comers to the courting game, but then-Coach
Ray Graves discovered a perk he could offer
that may have been the final selling point -a
golf course. The university had just bought a
golf course and Spurrier was keenly interested
in learning to play golf. So he came to Florida,
and the rest, as they say, is history. After
deciding against playing both baseball and
football during his first year at UF, Spurrier
went on to carve out a stellar collegiate foot-
ball career under the mentorship of Graves,
becoming a three-year starting quarterback, a
first team All-American selection in 1965 and
1966, and 1966 SEC Player of the Year.
Spurrier later played for the San Francisco
49ers for nine years and the Tampa Bay Bucs in
their first year, in 1976, before beginning his
coaching career. He was quarterbacks assistant
coach at Florida, Georgia Tech, and Duke,
before heading to the pros to lead the Tampa
Bay Bandits of the United States Football
League, from 1983-1985. After the USFL was
disbanded, Spurrier returned to Duke for three
years, a school to which he still retains immense
loyalty, before finally coming back to UF as the
head coach.
Spurrier believed that coaching Florida
was a huge responsibility. "We share the
game, but we have a responsibility, first of all


to ourselves, our teammates, our family, but
also to all the Gators that are coming to pay
their money and watch and cheer for the
Florida team," he said. He added that he
thinks it's important that the Gators played
their best and tried to win every time.
Despite this responsibility, Spurrier said,
"I believe I have more fun coaching than I did
as a player." He states that it can be frustrat-
ing at times, but very rewarding also. Getting
to see "your players excel, achieve, accom-
plish the most or the best that their ability
allows, that's most satisfying to me," he said.
This homespun gladiator may be fierce
on the gridiron, but he believes honesty, fair-
ness, even-temperedness, and competitive-
ness are characteristics that make a person
great. Yet he sees being a friend to all and a
person that's fun to be around as important,
too. "A person that's fun to be around, those
are my kind of people," Coach Spurrier said.
Like Maximus, however, this warrior
grandfather of triplets is devoted to his fami-
ly. This includes his wife of 35 years, Jerri,
and four children: Lisa, Amy, Steve Jr.
(Bubba), and Scotty. Married since the
beginning of Spurrier's senior year at UF,
Jerri Spurrier claims their marriage works
well because "He doesn't tell me how to
cook and I don't tell him how to coach."
Another reason for their successful partner-
ship may be her agreement with her hus-
band's belief in honesty as the most impor-
tant trait a person should have, but tem-
pered with kindness. She says the best way
to describe being married to Steve Spurrier is
"not boring." In a 1999 interview with St.
Petersburg Times sportswriter Hubert
Mizell, Jerri portrayed her husband as a car-
ing husband, father, and granddad who pos-
sesses a light-hearted sense of humor.
A true Gator family, almost every family
member has shown their devotion to the
University of Florida by attending the uni-
versity, several within the College of Health
and Human Performance. Coach Spurrier
led the way in receiving a degree in Physical
One of his favorite instructors was then-
basketball coach Jim McCachren. Spurrier


recalled learning from McCachren
a hand-strengthening technique
that involved throwing a basket-
ball against the wall back and forth
rapidly a hundred times. Spurrier
continues to use this training tech-
nique with the Florida quarter-
backs on a regular basis.
As for the Gator credentials of Spurrier's
family, his wife Jerri received her degree from
ESS, specializing in exercise physiology,
although she loves the wellness and medical
aspects of exercise, too. A coach in her own
way, she currently teaches two hour-and-a-
half classes five days a week at the
Gainesville Health and Fitness Center. These
classes range from aerobics and tai bo to kick-
boxing and stretching. She hopes to teach
Pilates eventually, as well. She remained
involved with the college by leading classes
in the weeklong Gator Life program offered
to seniors over 50 for several years.
Lisa, the older daughter, received her
BSESS in Physical Education in 1991. She
married Emerson King, also a graduate of
the college of Health and Human
Performance. They have two sons, Trey and
Davis. Amy, the younger daughter, graduat-
ed with a BS in Psychology in 1992 and mar-
ried Jay Moody, who graduated from UF's
College of Accounting and is now a CPA.
They also have two sons, Jake and Kyle.
Steve Jr. followed in his father's footsteps by
playing football in college for Duke
University. While an assistant coach for the
Florida Gators after graduation, he received
a Master's in Sports Management through
HHP. He now coaches wide receivers on the
University of Oklahoma's football team. He
and his wife, Melissa, became the proud par-
ents of triplets in January 2001. They have
two boys, Gavin and Luke, and bestowed
the first granddaughter on Steve and Jerri,
Emma Starr Spurrier. Spurrier's youngest
son, Scotty, is a 14-year-old ninth-grader and
an active athlete. Like his father and brother
before him, he loves and plays football. But
Scotty also adores ice hockey, a sport he
plays along with basketball and soccer. Track
is another sport in which he participates.

Coach Spurrier emphasized a family-like
atmosphere with the Gator football coaches
and players, much like the adopted family
Maximus formed with his fellow gladiators.
"Creating a family atmosphere among the
coaches and players is very important. Most
of the family stuff comes naturally, however,
in that we don't work at it," Spurrier said in
UF's Blueprint for Success section of the Florida
Football 2001 Media Guide. "It's nice to belong
to a group, a family, a team, and that doesn't
have to end when you quit playing here."
Both Coach Spurrier and his wife share a
strong belief in the importance of giving
back to their college and UF, especially if one
is fortunate enough to be in a position to do
so. While Spurrier notes that he has been
lucky to be in such a position, Jerri points
out that to give back doesn't have to be a lot.
"I think it's very important, even if it's very
little," she says. Jerri adds that many people
are unaware of the many things her husband
does for the university, noting that his gen-
erosity began when he gave to the Women's
Club to help support women's sports.
At the time of this interview, fall 2001,
Spurrier noted that he had been at the
University of Florida for 12 years and hoped
to stay for five or six more.
As we now know, Spurrier decided to
begin his NFL coaching career with the
Washington Redskins in 2002. He will
always remain part of the Gator family.

Recreation, Parks and

Tourism: Re-Accreditation

A according to the Chair of the Department
of Recreation, Parks and Tourism, he has
never observed a unanimous vote by the
National Recreation and Parks Association
Council on Accreditation for re-accreditation with
no conditions, and on top of that commenda-
tions. Dr. Stephen Anderson has been with the
council for 15 years; he has reviewed a number of
self-studies and visited a number of parks and
recreation programs throughout the country, but
he has never witnessed such agreement. The
Council on Accreditation reviewed 18 programs
at the recent NRPA conference; however, only two
were accredited in all four options. Some pro-
grams were not re-accredited, some were given
strict conditions, many were handed recommen-
dations, and only a few were given commenda-
tions. The Department of Recreation, Parks and
Tourism received four commendations: strong
institutional support for the program; diversity of
faculty; outstanding and supportive learning
environment, responsive to the changes in the
profession; and a strong linkage to the profession-
al delivery system as shown through the intern-
ship program. Overall, the University of
Florida's program had the most positive review.
Congratulations RPT.

H HP Academic Advisors'
NACADA Experience

Karen Berryman (ESS) and Stephanie
Revelli (RPT) attended the 25th National
Conference on Academic Advising held
in Ottawa, Ontario. The theme for the conference
was "Discover the Many Voices." Karen and
Stephanie noted their reasons for attending were
to become abreast of current research relative to
academic advising, learn about other academic
advising models and applications, and to net-
work. Over 1,600 student services professionals
attended the conference.

Ottawa was vibrant, with the trees in their
prime season of leaf changing. The atmosphere
of the conference was socially and educationally
motivating. A few of the sessions that were espe-
cially informative focused on a model for aca-
demic success for the college student, writing a
handbook for the academic advisor, advisor train-
ing, using research to inform practice, advising
students interested in study abroad, and student
recruitment and retention. Next year, the
National Conference will be held in Salt Lake
City, Utah.

Maurice Edmonds:

A Forever Champion

athletics have never been far from U.S.
Army Major General Maurice 0. (Maury)
Edmonds' heart throughout his career.
He began his lifelong support for Gator football
when he was appointed assistant manager of the
football team by coach Bob Woodruff in 1949. He
continues to serve on the advisory board for the
College and was very actively involved in the
steering committee for the College's "It's
Performance that Counts" capital campaign. This
year, he demonstrated his loyalty in yet another
unique way: as UF 2001 Homecoming Parade
Marshall. He was selected from a long list of UF
alumni to open and lead the Homecoming Parade
held Friday, November 2, 2001. The homecoming
theme was "Forever Champions."

President Charles Young honored Edmonds
with the title of Distinguished Alumnus at UF
2000 commencement ceremony. He graduated
from the University of Florida in 1953 with a
Bachelor's degree in physical education and
health. He cannot say he has planned every path
his life has taken; he did not know he would
become a major general in the U.S. Army nor the
2001 UF Homecoming Parade grand marshal.
However, Edmonds has had a very successful
military career, which was capped by promotion
to major general and selection as Deputy Chief of
Staff for Training for the Army. He and his wife,
Jane Edmonds, now live in Ponte Vedra Beach
with their dog, Gator.

Dr. Paula Welch Retires

She is a woman who was ahead of her
time a leader in women's sports, a
writer, a teacher and researcher, a
Gator of distinction. Paula Welch retired in
June, 2001, after 27 years of service and ded-
ication. But the recognition of her hard
work will continue for generations to come.

Paula began her higher education at
Florida State University, where she obtained
her bachelor's degree in Physical Education.
Shortly after she obtained her master's
degree at Peabody College in Nashville, she
moved to Eastern Kentucky University in
Richmond. She chose the University of
North Carolina at Greensboro as the school
where she would complete her dissertation,
The Emergence of Women in the Summer
Olympics. Paula returned to Florida in
1974, where she was hired as an Assistant
Professor at the University of Florida

Although a great deal of Paula's time
was spent in teaching and research, she was
able to co-author five books: Elementary
School Physical Education: A Teaching Guide;
History of American Physical Education and
Sport; Lady Gators...Simply the Best; Silver
Era, Golden Moments; and Four Centuries of
Sports in America. Her books are quite suc-
cessful and captured nearly a century of
women's sports.

Paula has received numerous distinctions
and honors. She was selected to serve at the
International Olympic Academy in Olympia,
Greece in 1973. She was listed in Community
Leaders of America in 1971, Outstanding
Young Women of America in 1974, and
Who's Who of American Women in the 1979-
80 editions. She was on the nominating com-
mittee for the Women's Sports' Foundation
Hall of Fame; served as Chair of the
Nominating Committee for the North
American Society for Sport History; and in
1985, was the John R. Betts Lecturer at the
North American Society for Sport History.
Then, in 1986 she was the U.S. Olympic
Committee Representative to the Olympic
Academy in Toronto. And in 1987, she was
selected as the College of Health and Human
Performance Teacher of the Year.

Professor Paul Welch retires as a leader
in the field of sports history. She brings
honor to her department, and has earned
the affection and respect of her many stu-
dents. Bravo, Paula!

National Student

Leadership Conference

(NSLC) HHP Students

Are Delegates To AAH-


ince 1995 the Southern District of the
American Alliance for Health, Physical
Education, Recreation, and Dance
(AAHPERD) has sponsored a student lead-

14 SPRING 2002

ership conference at Camp ASCCA-Easter
Seals, in Jackson Gap, Alabama. Camp
ASCCA is a beautiful facility situated on
230 acres along Alabama's largest man-
made recreational lake, Lake Martin. The
Camp consists of air-conditioned buildings,
an education center and lodge, a large din-
ing hall, a challenge and ropes course, a
gymnasium, a swimming pool, two lighted
tennis courts, and a lakefront area for walk-
ing and picture taking.

In 1999 Southern District invited stu-
dents from across the United States to par-
ticipate in this exciting leadership develop-
ment opportunity. In October 2000 the first
official National Student Leadership
Conference was held. National and District
AAHPERD Associations as well as state
AHPERDs were invited to send student del-
egates to participate. Contributions from
sponsors, AAHPERD, and from Camp
ASCCA enabled the conference to be pro-
vided at no charge to 100 selected students.

Over the seven-year history of the stu-
dent leadership conference, the University
of Florida's College of Health and Human
Performance has had student leaders select-
ed for participation in six of seven years.
Dr. Jill Varnes, Professor of Health Science
Education and past President of SDAAH-
PERD and AAHPERD, has been a member
of the leadership faculty team since the pro-
gram's inception. UF/HHP delegates to the
2001 conference included Exercise and
Sport Sciences Physical Education majors
Jimmy McCullers of Live Oak and Abie
Schwab of Perry sponsored by the Florida
AHPERD; Health Science Education majors
Sonia Sharma of Port Charlotte and Julia
Varnes of Gainesville, sponsored by the
American Association for Health Education.

After a six hour drive the group arrived

at Camp ASCCA, and so began a long
event filled three days designed to prepare

participants for leadership opportunities in
physical education, health promotion, and
education, fitness, sports, dance, and recre-
ation. The Leadership Conference proved
to be a combination of learning, hard work,
teamwork, skill building, and developing
(what are likely to be) lifelong friendships.

Participants had the privilege of inter-
acting with Southern District and AAH-
PERD leaders in both classroom and activi-
ty based programs. Past-AAHPERD
President Lucinda Adams, a 1960 Olympic
gold medallist in track and field shared not
only her gold medal, but spoke of the dedi-
cation and commitment necessary to accom-
plish any goal. Current AAHPERD
President and HHP graduate, Glenn Roswal
(MA '74), the organizer for the conference,
challenged the participants to be advocates
for active healthy lifestyles and to step up
to leadership opportunities.

According to Jimmy McCullers, "Prior
to going to the Leadership Conference, I
had a strong desire to be a physical educa-
tor who taught students unique and fun
ways of participating in a variety of sports
and living a l'- .1rl.. active lifestyle.
However, I had concerns about how I could
be that unique teacher. Attending the
Leadership Conference gave me the oppor-
tunity to hear from current professionals
and future professionals like myself...pre-
senters who gave me many new ideas of
how I might become that unique physical

The NSLC experiences are designed to
challenge participants while teaching them
essential leadership skills, the most essential
skill of which is self-confidence. Through a
ropes challenge course consisting of walk-
ing ropes and wires, zip lines, and team
building activities of trust falls, wall climb-
ing, and more, participants felt a sense of
accomplishment and recognized the impor-

tance of team work to accomplish any chal-
lenge. When it came time for the team
building activities it was no longer about
one person, but about the whole team. For
Abbie Schwab, "it wasn't just about
whether I trusted my teammates, but did
they trust me? We learned about each other
and from each other in order to complete
the challenge."

"I think this weekend taught us a lot
about ourselves, and how we interact with
others," noted Julia Varnes. "We made
wonderful friends and met a lot of differ-
ent leaders in a less formal atmosphere."
Sonia Sharma agreed, "To say the least, it
was a very inspiring weekend!" Abbie,
Julia, and Sonia all agree with Jimmy's final
comment, "The 2001 National Student
Leadership Conference was one of the
greatest experiences of my life."

However, we still have unmet needs. These
include additional PhD Fellowships, which
require an initial commitment of $100,000 (with
a $50,000 match from the state), funding for lab-
oratory equipment, and unrestricted funds that
help the College seize new opportunities and to
meet sudden challenges -- such as the current
state and national economic "recession."

Our goal for fiscal year 2001-2002 is $500,000
in cash and $600,000 in pledges --- a very strong
goal but reachable if we all do our small part.

Over the past year, I have had the pleasure of
meeting many College alumni. Virtually all have
said how much they enjoyed their time at the
University of Florida and how the College pre-
pared them for their careers.

If you wish to give back to your alma mater,
I assure you that through some form of planned
giving we can meet your needs and those of the
College. Below, for example, are a few of the dif-
ferent types of estate planning tools available to
help accomplish your financial goals for you
family, friends, and your College.

summer months.

Students understand the
University Scholars research
experience is a full-time summer
commitment. In return, each
scholar receives a $2,500 stipend.
Research may be completed
during the following academic
year as independent study.

Each student is required to
submit a 200-word abstract
and publish a 1,500 to 2,000
word paper in the Journal of
Undergraduate Research.
Zachary Rothberg was fea-
tured in the Journal
/jur/ where he offered the fol-
lowing about his experience:

"Through working with my
mentor, I have learned how to
develop a survey, work with
the IRB for approval, establish
validity for the survey results,
and develop a database for sta-
tistical analysis."

His mentor, Dr. Dan
Connaughton, feels that the
University Scholars Program
"is a great program for the
undergraduate scholar, their
mentor, and the University."
Dr. Pete Giacobbi stated,
"If the amount of work
involved in this project is any
indication, then Jamie has
gained tremendous knowledge
and experience with collecting
and analyzing social psycho-
logical data."

All Scholars will have the
opportunity to share their
research findings at the annual
University Scholars Symposium
scheduled during the spring

To be eligible for the University

his has been yet another
wonderful year for
HHP students. Forty-
eight majors were pro-
vided financial
resources that may enable them to
complete class projects, enhance
practical skills, or make significant
contributions in their communities,
and in some instances the global
community. Students were recog-
nized at this year's convocation,
held in conjunction with the
January College Advisory Council
meeting. The convocation is one of
the ways that we are able to honor
the donors whose contributions
make these awards possible.
Reflecting on this achievement
reminds one of Ralph Waldo
Emerson's quotation "My angel,
his name is Freedom, choose him to
be king; he shall cut pathways east
and west, and fend you with his
wing." Our donors have created
pathways for our students; many
have had their ways fended.

Our annual scholarship awards
have grown from $5,000 to over
$60,000 within the past five years.
This has been accomplished
through the generosity of our
alumni and friends and the diligent
with guidance from TRAVIS
GRANTHAM, our College
Development Officer. Members of
the College Council served as hosts
for the event and Bertha Cato, HHP
Student Affairs Dean, along with
other faculty and staff, announced
the recipients as Dean Bird present-
ed the awards. Other members of

the Scholarship Committee were
Drs. Doug DeMichele, Milledge
Murphey, Lori Pennington-Gray,
and Robert Weiler.

SCHOLARSHIPS were established in
1998 by three former faculty mem-
bers. Scholarships are presented to
undergraduate and graduate stu-
dents with a demonstrated commit-
ment to be of service to others
either through military or commu-
nity service.
