    Wide Receiver if you have good hands. If not corner back. Just be able to run because that's required a lot at practice and well of course in games. Also be kind of strong to be able to get off of jams if your a WR or if your force to jam a WR if your a corner back. So just be able to run for a while. Don't get tired out easy. You'll be fine. Good Luck. =)

    You should find someone who plays and ask them when weight lifting is. My school lifts 2 weeks after football season then all year long. Before you join understand it will be hard as hell playing football I'm smaller then you but I'm a freshman and played this season and it was really tough especially camp it was 2 weeks before school even started 8am- 9pm it was real life hell. You get lots of respect for playing though like wearing the jersey on Fridays and much more. Football will make you a better person just remember there will be lots of hard work and times you want to quit but stick through it and you won't regret it.
