To clear things up, there is a major difference between a jock and athletes. Jocks tend to abuse their popularity, while the athletes don't really mind who they talk to or hang out with.
Signs of a jock: Rude, arrogant, stupid, beats up people, dates only cheerleaders and hangs around other jocks

Signs of a true athlete: Love their sport, try to stay down-to-earth (a little arrogance is expected), hang out with whoever they want, date whoever they want, might beat people up but that doesn't mean it was uncalled for.

Get the Jock mug.
Arguably the most hated, yet loved typical High-School & College-related clique ever. Jocks, to make a long story short, are athletes who are convinced that their athletic skill will help them exceed in life, where in the real world, they end up bagging groceries, or working at a used Car Dealership.

Jocks only listen to Rap music, because everything Rock is "Emo" to them.
Guy 1: "Remember that Jock in Sophomore year that almost beat your ass?"

Guy 2: "Yeah, whatever happened to him?"

Guy 1: "He pumped my fucking Gas yesterday!"

A jock is a young male whose entire life revolves around proving that he is superior to everone else, hence, the involvement in competitive sports. Jocks are trained to trample on other people without feeling any remorse. Some females can be jocks, too. The important thing is NOT that they are actually good at sports, but that they ernestly believe that they are superior and that they act that way. They, of course, have their circle of friends (as many as possible, so as to show everyone how "friendly" they are and to make themselves feel good) who they do acknowledge as nearly their equals. But anybody else is dirt beneath their feet and not worthy to even speak to them.
You see them everywhere. Some stop being jocks after high school, when they find out they really weren't that great after all, even in their chosen sport. Others remain jocks throughout college, or welding school, or whatever. Some remain jocks into their thirties and beyond. By then, it has nothing to do with sports. It's all in the attitude as, of course, it always was.

A big athlete with a small ass brain. Usually an arrogant asshole, making everyone feel like nothing. Likes to bone cheerleaders, as well as fellow teammates. Seemingly popular in high school, but goes nowhere after graduation. Ends up either working fast food and/or drunk for a living. The epitome of loser.
Regular: Look at Jim, hes got an STD and failed his senior year. What a dumbass jock.

A complete muscle head who thinks having a life riddled with friends and women who's only good feature is the body will actually get them somewhere. One who goes out of his wasy to look for flaws in people. Is always trying to look cool by wearing the latest style.
