There may be some confusing words around campus. It has been said that the sports psychologist is leaving. This however, is not completely true.
Although referred to as the sports psychologist, he is not due to being licensed by the state of Pa. anytime soon. Joe Webb, the sports psychology intern, is simply finishing his internship from Temple University.
Webb said, “I would love to stay.” He says that he absolutely loves Cabrini, its players and coaches. However, there is no actual position for him to continue his work here.
Webb says that he has spoken with Athletic Director Leslie Danehy about making himself available to players and coaches. Although he will not have office hours, Webb says that he will speak to whomever either over the phone or by setting up a time with them to talk. In addition to this, Webb has also applied for various positions including an academic advising position.
Many of Cabrini’s teams that reserved help from Webb appreciated his dedication and time he put into their season.
Cabrin’s first swim team reserved a lot of attention from Webb. Since he himself used to swim at a college level he would help the team get ready for their races. Swim captain, Gina Treml said, “He helped encourage us and made me feel mentally ready for my races.”
Other teams such as volleyball, and both men’s and women’s basketball recieved his support.
Webb will be available next year to the student-athletes to boost their confidence once again. As of now there is no title assigned to him for next year. Even as a spectator Webb offers words of wisdom.
