The 2009 season is coming up! How many people on T-Nation are getting ready for the season. Lets see some stats, goals etc....
Age:17 Height:6' weight:222 Vert:18" 40 time: 5.2 (yes I am very sloowwwwwwww) I wil start on Varsity this year as a junior Goal: 50 pancakes this year in 9 games. Prev. record: 35 pancakes in 9 games Position: center
In HS I was 5-6/155 lbs. My bench was 255, Squat 365 and Dl 425. OLB, and Split End. 40 yard was 4.91. Played 1985-89 on a Wing T offensive scheme.
Here's a pic of me at an Alumni game in 2007. Me and 2 other guys were the oldest by about 15 years. Most of the kids were 21 and under. I was 36 and about 178lbs...and slow. That's my original helmet I kept and had it refurbed inside.
I won't do it again, but It was an great experience to go through again.
I'm prepairing for my first year as an assistant line coach and strength coach. Our goals, not to suck. Taking over a team that was 1-9 last year. There are a few kids who have skills but a lot more who are VERY lazy, 85% of the team has shown up to any off season training. They're gonna get a wake up call when we knock their dicks in the dirt the first day of 2 a days.
Goal is to win State. It's going to be hard this year. We graduated 20 starters from last year, but we are much more of a team than last year. Personally, I would like to get a sack per game. This is only my third year of playing football ever, but since I have gotten a lot better, I hope that I will get good varsity time.
Football Camp Goals: 40 time: 4.75 seconds and - Vertical: 36 inches and +
I'm a wideout/cornerback, and I'm hoping to start this year at one of those positions. It's pretty tough for me because there's a D1 prospect who has one receiver spot locked up, and we have a lot of good d-backs. This is my senior year and I'd like to make an impact.
Season Goals: To win State!
We were 6-5 last year, and in the past six years my school has never been out of the top 10 rankings. I'd like for my senior class to lead our team to our first state title in 4 years. Last year, the seniors were a bunch of slacker stoners, but this year we're a lot tighter-knit and much harder working.
6'.5" 285 Centre York University (Toronto, ON) My camp goals were to take the starting Centre job, However a knee injury in training (waiting for mri results) and now a slipped disk in my lower back make that less likely right now
I was gonna play football this year, but pulled groin put and end to that. Anyways these would have been my stats.
Age: 17 Height: 5'11 Weight: 180 <-- not a stable weight, I would have tried to lose 10-15 pounds of FAT. 40 time: 4.8-4.7 <-- after this years track season, I promise its going to be a good 4.6, maybe even 4.5 Vert: idk, if I had to guess i'd say like 31' or something, but thats just a guess.
Will be attempting to walk-on at a D1-AA college in the fall for whatever position they'll take me, probably fullback. In high school I played every position on the line finishing as an offensive tackle. The weak stats stem from a full ACL tear my junior year and a partial tear during my senior year.
Good article, a couple facts are off, but it gives a general idea of what sprint football is.
As a brief summary, I play sprint football for Cornell University. There is a league that consists of us, Army, Navy, UPenn, Princeton, Mannsfield, and there has been talk of teams starting up at Michigan and VMI in the future. Here's a brief summary of the rules:
-Rules are the same as normal collegiate football. -There is a 172 lb weight limit. Players must make two weigh ins (four and two days before the game) in a given week to play.
That's it. As far as a league for skinny dudes goes, there are shorter guys who are pretty solid and players routinely hover around 180-190 in the offseason with reasonable body fat levels. Granted, not huge by any means, but not cross country runners...
The level of competition is obviously not DI, but it should be noted that teams will routinely scrimmage respectable DIII teams and beat them handily.
