6’1” and 248?? Damn man if only you had a 4.4 in the 40 yard you would be a monster linebacker. Maybe you were?
I played high school football, had 4.6-4.7 speed, but I was only about 215-220lbs back then and played DE. I quit early my senior year, I was hot headed, didn’t like the coach. When I was 248lbs, I wasn’t working on my speed and doubt I was faster than a 5.0 at the time. I played with a couple people who are now in the NFL, and a couple others who went D1A. It’s funny, I had a linebacker build, but I never played linebacker. Something about defensive end I always loved. I was like a third string tight end, wasn’t really great in that department, but I was good on defense (till I quit).
My goal is to be the best me, mind, body and soul, PE is part of achieving the best me.
