Lol, Jesus people…
OP what division is it? If it’s D3 you’ll probably be fine. I’m not saying you’ll make it, but I doubt you’ll be the lankiest guy out there. If we’re talking about Auburn then ya, you better be a freak of an athlete. [/quote]
I think you are underestimating D3 football a little bit. Then again it is entirely possible that my sarcasm meter is busted. Most of the time D3 and Juco are filled with kids that are some of the most talented kids at small schools or bad teams that don’t draw the recruiting attention. Having never played football before you better be a dang good athlete if you are going to walk-on. [/quote]
No, not at all. I’m just saying that the kid may very well have a shot at making the team, practice squad, or whatever at a D3 school. At least around here.
Obviously he is under sized, but has good potential to grow. [/quote]
I just think that without a previous base in football, he would need to be a very good athlete to make them want to take the time to teach him. Otherwise they are going to just say sorry. Maybe our JUCO’s and D3’s are just stronger around here (while probably true with JUCO, I kind of doubt the D3), but you had to be pretty athletic to be a contributor. I walked on to my JUCO team and made it, but decided not to play, so from personal experience it can be done. But I played up till my Jr year, and I had attended high level football camps as a younger player, and was a decent athlete. This kid would get killed in that environment.
