    Based on your height and weight, I believe that the best fit for you is at free safety. You have the ideal size for a high school free safety.

    My best advice for you is to work hard and perform very well in practice every day. In addition, what you need to do this summer (and every offseason) is eat healthy, exercise by doing weight lifting, and either jogging or going for a long run every day. If you do these things, you will get faster, stronger, and into better shape, which will greatly improve your chances of becoming a successful, top notch free safety in high school football, who could go on to play college football.

    By the way, your chances of playing college football depend on your performance in football during your senior year of high school. If you perform very well in football during your final 3 years of high school, you will greatly improve your chances of getting recruited to play for a college football program in the future.

    Oh god...you just asked the question that Cu Tie loves to spam the same answer to. 

    Aside from the dbs I talked about in the other thread there are some positions where being short isn't a disadvantage. 

    In general, defensive players tend to be a little shorter than comparable offensive players because defensive players rely more on quickness to react whereas offensive players rely more on speed. You can throw out d-line because of your size. Maybe you could get away with playing LB in some places if you added 30-40 pounds. 

    RBs tend to be a little shorter because being short gives you a lower center of gravity thus making you harder to tackle. Look at Darren Sproles for example. If you aren't big or fast you need to be quick though. Slot receivers tend to be a little shorter too but again you need to be quick.

    how old are you?? boys are still developing during their childhood.

    you could 5'6 130 pounds at 12 years old and be bigger than all the boys.

    or you could be a high schooler and be one of the mid range or smaller guys

     if you are in high school, you are probably the size of a receiver or defensive back. 

    If you are a fully grown adult male, you wouldn't even be able to play football
