Am I too small for a lineman?


I'm 15, 220lbs, 5'8 and I am being looked at to be moved up to play varsity center. I bench 205 lbs and squat 300lbs and my 40 time is 5.4 sec. My question is if I'm to short to play line and if i should work on my speed and move to linebacker because i hit hard and I know how to read the qb and pass rush

Football Trivia?

you may not be too short for high school but you are way too short for division 1 football or the nfl. if you want to play in college or beyond move to fullback. these days fullbacks mostly block so its like a mini lineman in the backfield. also work on getting stronger because your weight numbers aren't bad for being 15 but will definitely need to get a lot higher if you want to play in college.

Eagles draft day strategy? Anyone?

I to was a short yet stout M.Fer and my coach tried me in different spots on both offense and defense to find my best fit and finally I settled into two positions I played middle linebacker on the D and left end on O so look for what your own personal strengths are and build it from there I really enjoyed playing on both sides of the ball. but if you feel like staying on the D then linebackers and corner backs are the right choice to go with. They seem to get more action on the ball and I netted 23 sacks in the two seasons that I played till I unfortunately fractured my spine.

It's not the size of the dog in the fight, it's the size of the fight in a dog. I'll tell you some of my best lineman where shorter, stockyer guys. To tell you the truth most of the 6'3" 275 pounders a just big teddy bears. Play with your heart, as cheesy as it may sound. Don't ever let size, height, hold you back.
