    We just got the news on Wednesday that my son will be the starting fullback on the Varsity squad this season. It's a position he loves to play. He will also be a starting guard on defense. The FB position will be for the first 2 games to see how he does. If he does better than the senior who has been playing that position then he will be permanent FB.

    This is unusual for his coach to do this because he always favors the Senior players and my son is a Junior. I guess the running backs went to the coach and told him they would rather run behind my son.

    We didn't think he would have a chance to be a FB again until he became a senior so I'm getting pretty excited again about his season starting. He has been hitting the weights pretty hard on the off season again. He is 6" 1' at 215 lbs. He is squatting 420 lbs. and is only 16. He is starting a speed program next week. That is where he is a little weak. He is doing a 4.72- 40 and needs to get down to around 4.6 IMO.

    If you happen to go to my youtube page check out the Gull Lake vid. The last 2 runs he does for that game will show you how tough he carries the ball.

    OK back to other stuff and enough about me bragging on my son. (I'm just a little geeked)

    Thanks guys.

    BTW. He loves hitting linebackers as much as he does running the ball.
