So, this September, the university I’ll be going to has an American football team (London)
The standard is pretty mediocre, having looked at them play and the fact that they’re bottom of the division at the moment, so I think I could probably sneak in to the team and learn a new sport. I currently play soccer, but I want to play a sport which can motivate me to get bigger and stronger.
So my question is, what can I do in preparation to make myself a better player and stand a good chance of getting into the team?
I plan to bulk up and put on some more muscle over the summer, something I had great success with in the last “off season”, and of course I’ll be working on conditioning and some football drills (alas I don’t have access to anyone that plays the game here in London, so I simply do some with my training buddy)
Any advice you more experienced Americans have to give me?
