Torn rotator cuffs are not that bad. I tore both playing college football and had them both repaired. I've never had any problem with them again, and I still play full contact football now.

Where did you play College football. You must be pretty damn good to make it all the way to that level.

I'm going to play College Football. Just have to keep at it and stay committed. Then again, having proper size helps. I went to the doctor today, I'm almost 6'4" now. Damnit, 6'3" was comfortable for me ;P

I played at Ohio State University as a CB than was converted to strong safety my sophomore year because my ability to stop the run. Transferred out to UNC and finished my career there.

but not much luck. I was told my height was the deciding factor. I'm 5' 8 1/2" tall (to be exact) 190 lbs. 4.5 forty yd. dash. The pototypical safety in the NFL is 5'11" 205lbs. 4.6 forty yd. dash. My forty time is very good, but with the NFL looking for the 6'2" and 6'3" WRs, the knock on me was my height (that's what I was told by scouts), and that didn't surprise me. I was invited to tryout for the Panthers, Jaguars and Cowboys but no luck. I play semi-pro football now for the New Castle Saints. Its cool though, I play for the love of the game.

you had to weigh before each game, guys used to put sinkers and rocks where ever they could stash em, before they hit the scales, to intimidate the other team. hell, now they probably take things off!

My natural position is FS(what I played in HS). I can play QB(good luck)WR, and CB too. If I beefed up (don't really want to too much) I could play TE.

Being tall helps play center field. :)
