    While researching Colgate for my son, I came across these papers and one in particular, intrigued me; Caitlin Cremin, “The Winning Formula: A Case Study on the Makings of a Successful Collegiate Athlete.”

    Excellent work and good job having data to back points as well as making the read interesting and informative. Impressive work at any level.

    Congratulations and best of luck!
