Let me start of by saying that football is one of my passions. I've always wanted to play, and I've finally been motivated enough to try. I feel like I know a good amount about the game. My personal idol? QB Russell Wilson.
I am currently a junior in high school. I have one chance to play, next year. I am currently a swimmer, and then a lacrosse player until the end of the school year.
I'm a pretty small guy, I can be pretty shifty. But that's not going to do. I also have pretty small hands, but I will not be deterred. I am determined to walk in and lead my high school team next season as a quarterback.
I'm a natural leader, I feel like I have the intangibles. I just need to develop arm strength, accuracy and some mechanics. That starting spot will be mine. I don't mean to sing my own praise at all, but I'm a pretty smart kid.
I am 5'9", 120 pounds. My body is my greatest enemy. I have a very high metabolism. I am somewhat injury prone due to my size and lack of muscle. My right ankle has been a trouble spot during lacrosse season, I sprained it pretty badly during the summer workouts and it's been easy to tweak since then. I think that I'll become much harder to hurt once I get stronger. Plus, tape is a wonderful thing.
I want to be a good 150 by September, at least 140. I'm going to find a mentor and get some mechanics down. I want to be able to throw well, but we run an option offense so I need to become more of a complete athlete
I want to lead my team to victory. I want to be a legend. I read some of the football sticky, but I felt I needed a more personalized answer because I have a serious ultimatum to meet. I need to be at my target weight by September 2013. Does anyone have any "secrets" for me to get strong quickly? I'm wondering if these starting strength programs are optimal for a guy looking to be a QB.
Help me be a winner, guys. Much love from an ambitious amateur looking to become a star.
TL;DR: New QB, weighs 120 at 5'9", has 9 months to gain 20-30 pounds. What do? Is it possible?
