Not to be confused with jocks, who are usually stuck-up idiots. Atheletes are people who are actually concerned about aspects of their lives other than their popularity and their cheerleader girlfriend. Athletes have an 85% better chance at becoming more successful than jocks, who will eventually be the people who clean the toilets at your local gas station. Atheletes, however, run a risk of being converted to jocks if they are on a sports team or group with them for an extended period of time (usually 2-3 years). High school teams usually are 10% athelets and 90% jocks.
Hey, Jackie Robinson was a great athelete! He broke the sports color barrier!
Hey, Michael Vick was a great jock. He fought dogs and lied about it!
