The running back position is one that has a lot of different styles that
are all effective. The five nine, quick, change of direction kind of a
back. The big old back, the six foot, 215 pound downhill runner. I
think what college coaches look for in running backs and their tailbacks
and fullbacks is versatility, really. You got to have vision first.
You have to understand. You have to be able to see the hole and see the
adjustment of where you need to run the football - your running lane.
You have to have explosiveness. You have to get to the line of
scrimmage in a hurry. You got to press that hole, that you're supposed
to be running to, in a hurry, in a split second so that the defense only
has a second to react. Once you do that, that ability to stick your
foot in the ground, or make that jump cut to avoid that tackler or to
get into the open and maybe get around your blocker are key things.
There has to be an ability to make a defender miss whether it's by
power, running over them or whether it's by change in direction. Right?
Those are some of the things, basic things, that a coach is looking
for. Then there got to be that burst - BOOM! That acceleration. That
chance where two defenders are coming and I, as a tailback, have the
ability to split those guys with that burst and get up the field. And
then versatility, I talk about catching the ball out of the backfield.
If you can catch the ball out of the backfield you can be in every down.
Blocking - if you can block, carry out your assignments on the fakes
and do the little things, as a running back you can be in on every down.
If you're 5' 9", you better be a strong son-of-a-gun with great
quickness because that's how you'll overcome the concern about the
height. Understand what kind of a back you are. Use the basic skills
that you have to have as a tailback and make them miss guys.
I’m about 5’9 and weigh 160. I’m in 11th grade right now and play Varsity for my team. I’m usually put in for Kick off or Kick return and I play LB but I really wanna play RB. I know I need the speed and I’m willing to work on that but one thing I’m missing is the Aggresion. I’m scared to take a lot of contact. I’ve seen guys getting hit, helmets flying off. In every game I can’t perform my best because of the nervousness. Is there any way I can get that fear out of my head?
I’m in the same boat as you. Same height and weight but I still have time to grow as well. Anyways, what will help you is going in with a clear mind. If you go in with a mindset of get a first down or score or something it will as long as you believe in yourself✊🏽 Run hard and with a clear mind and I guarantee the rest will take care of itself with time and on instinct
Facts me too im 5'7 1/2 and weigh 150 and play LB but in 10th grade and play JV and really wanna play RB and i think i have the same problem like speed and agility, and agression like im not scared to be hit im jus scared to tackle someone, i can hit them without any problem tho, but i have no real experience in a game bc i never played before this year is my first year ever playing real football so i have a problem with remembering plays and being able to remember what to do when a play changes right before the ball snaps because im confused, what should i do to help me remember my plays
+Divante Williams there's a lot of people in the u.s. with my skill just bigger and I'm planning on long jumping in track in college but they won't let me do football because they don't want me to get hurt
YUSC BeatZ that’s not true because colleges want the best players at their schools. If you’re a great player then I’m sure they’ll offer you. The idea of size being an issue is just a mind thing. If you have the ability to play on the next level, then you’ll get offers.
+Divante Williams yeah let's be honest I'm not going to lie I'm a solid running back but no colleges are going to want me because except maybe I can pay for a d3 program or naia but I might do track at a D1 level
I am 5’7 145 pounds 14 years old heading into my first year of jv after only playing one year of 8th grade football playing line man and linkebacker . Im quick strong and have good endurance what position should I be
I’m only 150 and 5’9 and am forced to play rb for my defensive teams practice. I go against the best guys which are all 11th and 12th graders. Just yesterday I got hit by a 212 lb junior. Not liking football to much. please send help. I can’t quit or I’ll get bullied through the entire year 😫.
I'm 5'9 185 lbs. Not the fastest guy in the world, but still pretty fast. I used to be 250 lbs , so i know how to block because i used to play Offensive guard. Dont really know what my 40 is, but if i would have to guess i would say around 4.85. I bench 225 for 13 reps. Should I focus on playing Running back? Or should I try other positions? Btw I am 17 years old.
I'm being honest here. I'm about to turn 13, im 5'3, 120 lbs, and I can bench 115. I did well last season as a line backer but I won't be too tall in the future so I don't know how I will do in the future. I'm pretty fast, and I can catch pretty decently. What position should I aim to play next season, or should I just let the process flow lol.
I'm a rb as a freshman Been playing rb and punt/kick return if ur gonna be a rb I say u should have some required stuff such as vision,footwork,ball control,speed,strength,and most important stamina trust me u will get tired so make sure ur fit enough,and remember u don't have to be big to be a rb most are pretty small and fast. Hope I helped some ppl
