I bet you did.

I shouldn't talk, I wrestled all throughout high school.

Re: If You Could Play Any Position......

I'd play DE. I played DE and TE in high school and had a blast playing at the end of the line. You can get a way with murder if youre being blocked, and if not, you get to blow up a play in the backfield.

I punched a tackle so hard one time right below the ribcage (just underneath the padding of the shoulder pads, that spot thats sure to knock your breath out every time)that when he came back up after catching his breath he had to be escorted off the field... he was ready to murder me. Enter his backup... I had my best game... lol.

I scored a Defensive TD in that game on a 47 yard strip-the-QB-and-run-your-ass-off play.

I miss playing.

Our wrestling coach was always trying to recruit me, I wanted nothing to do with rolling around on a mat with a sweaty guy.

Seriously though, that's a tough sport.

LOL yeah you really could get away with a lot at DE.

My favorite move was the good old head butt, I had so many shankers on my helmet with the other teams' colors. I never got called for it either LOL. I always wanted a Dave Butz helmet and I came pretty close.

It's not called wrestling if you're doing it in a shed out back and you're naked.

Re: If You Could Play Any Position......

One of my favorite moments, and I know this may sound bad, but it was when I decked our QB in practice once. The kid was always so arrogant, and I had a nice clean shot on him and totally laid him out. He had tears in his eyes and he got the wind knocked outta him. It was funny because our coach was pissed but I think he kinda liked the hard hit too.

Re: If You Could Play Any Position......

I always loved that too. The QB was always a prima donna bitch when I played. When he scrimmaged the first team D, we didn't give a SHIT if he was wearing a red jersey.

My dad was really good when he was in high school, so he started me on a team when I was 6, so I was jsut used to it. So of the moves can be pretty fruity, but it's a good sport to know when you get in a fight. Also, because of wrestling for so long (even though I was probably about .500 all through HS) I am almost impossible to dunk in a pool; so I got that going for me, which is nice.

As for football, I was too small to play in highschool but I played Pop Warner growing up. When I was in third and fourth grade I went to Art Monk football camp. I think I played o-line and DB back then, which really made no sense at all. I wish I had played linebacker of TE though, I think those would have been the most fun.

I hit one of the bitch coaches in drills when I was in JR high... and knocked him on his ass... he had no pads. I went to school in TX, so I got a freaking SPANKING. with a board with holes in it... lol... f'in texans...

Did you ever get anyones fingers stuck in your facemask and twist around, or head but them with their hand and try to break it?

Safety or Linebacker. I've played every defensive position outside of cornerback, and knocking the ever living hell out of people was always the best part.

I wouldn't play a position. I would play GM and start cleaning house.

Re: If You Could Play Any Position......

Out of ALL the positions I played, kickoff team was the most fun. If you're fast enough you are sprinting full speed by the time the poor front line of kick return turns around. You can blind side the SHIT out of people on that.

I wasn't a big fan of my teams quarterback either. I think being a prima donna is a prereq to be a high school quarterback. The funny thing is, the guy was pretty cool before we got into high school.
