Lately it's been running through my head that I should try out for the spring practice team at my school. And then eventually try to make it on the roster. I'd like to be strong (or free) safety. Though I'd probably end up on special teams considering my height.
I'm 19, 175-180lbs (might be less, quite a bit of stress recently, horrible sleep and eating habits).
-Bench: 315# for a shitty 1rm
-Bench Reps: 185# 27 reps (still had a few in the tank...I think I can get 35-40 I'll try again next week)
-Deadlift: 495# (think I can pull more if I pull sumo)
-W. Chin Up: BW + attached 170#
-Pullups: 33 in a row (left maybe 2 in the tank)...No Kip.
-Power Snatch + OHS: 185#
-Power Clean: 255#
-Burpees in 15min: 832
In high school ran a 4.6, and I never weight trained, of course I weighed something around 130 with a backpack on. I might be faster now, or slower, more than likely I'm the same speed.
I can dunk a basketball (not with authority, but it looks pretty cool for my height) I barely get my hand over the rim... I've always been close to that, until recently I got accomplished it (5-6months ago).
Here's the pinch.
-I've never played football before other than intramural leagues and thats a freakin joke.
-The college I attend is USC.
So do I have a chance (in hell?) or should I keep going for MMA :-p (I'll be working to make it on TUF 4 if this doesn't work out).
