    Short Linebackers

    I usually play mlb, I might play defensive end next year in 9th grade, but probably not. I'm 6'0 now, but don't know how tall i'm gunna get seeing that my dad is only 6 foot and a half. Do I have chance getting recruited for D1 football if i only get to say 6'1 as a lb?

    Yes, 6'1" is a decent height for an LB.
    Expect to be there, work like you don't belong.

    Apparently that was tall enough for me, and I've seen shorter on the field. I don't think your height will be the determining factor for you.

    Whatever state you live in start looking at college rosters your junior year of high school, even look outside of your state a little depending on how far you want to go. Find out who is looking for linebackers, guys who are seniors or juniors are leaving soon. Contact them 6"0 is a good height for linebacker, especially outside lb. You need to get strong as hell man, run a lot as much as you can. Take care of your body that is your weapon against everyone else. Consider it like this if my body is bigger and faster and stronger than the other guys I'm going to win every time. Have somebody film you every game. Make sure you are playing hard every play. The more film you have of you kicking ass the better. I know trust me

    I'm 5" 10 1/2 and trust me cleats are not adding that much. I just made the final cut for my college. I start practicing with the team immediately. I am a linebacker.

    Good luck

    110% every play
