Okay, thanks for the responses. I figrued it would be hard to just walk in and on day one (or even by the start of the season) have the starting job against guys that have been playing for years. One thing I will have on them is lower body strength.
Not trying to sound like a jerk or anything, but most kids in my school are pretty week. My numbers after 3 serious months of lifting are equal to or higher than most of theirs. Problem is im carring around a little bit more fat then them.
Right now im seriously considering trying, and if it turns out I hate it, then I will quit, but if I like it why not try? However, I now have a new goal this summer instead of gaining weight: I want to cut most of my fat.
I feel it would be better for football, so this summer im going to try to lose 25-30 lbs of fat (hopefully) with practices, lifting, and good nutrition. Do you guys think it is do-able for me to lose fat and keep most of my muscle this summer?
Again, thanks for the advice/answers. Im not freakishly athletic or anything, but i've always been a committed and hard worker so I feel I have a chance to earn playing time. It's my senior year of high school, my last chance to play sports really, so if I don't do it now, I may regret it down the road.
P.S. to coolnatedawg: we have quite a few of our guys go out for football, but yeah anyone with athleticism stands a chance of playing.
