Football is a fun-filled sport packed with competition and action. Keep reading to learn more about football.

Always listen to the other players on your team. Even if you disagree, you all share the goal of winning. Their input might give you an idea which really takes your team's play over the top.

Dance could be used as one part of your workout to improve your football skills. It can help to improve footwork and add to your coordination. Having good footwork on the football field can greatly improve your agility.

Weight training is critical if you play football. Work with weights year round to keep in tone for football. Speed and strength are a result of both heavy weights and basic lifts in your workouts. Both skills are needed to become a winning athlete.

Do repetitive drills that are designed to improve your agility. Football players are some of the more agile athletes out there. This helps to get around being tackled as well as making nifty catches. You'll be better off if you improve your ability to do these things by performing tire running drills and jumping rope.

A successful field goal attempt can boost your team's score. Try a field goal attempt on fourth down when in the kicker's range. Of course, an attempt should only be made when your team is near the goal posts. Having a good kicker can be vital to a team. Remember that any field goal gives you three extra points.

Correct technique is necessary for catching footballs when it rains. Don't slip, by pointing toes in the direction of the ball. This allows you to have more control when you catch the ball. Pay attention to your hips and chest as well; they should be aligned with your legs. Put your hands near the front of the football and set to the sides.

Football is a physically demanding sport, so make sure you are up to the task before you try out for the team. To reach your peak performance, work out every day beginning with stretching and cardio, then lifting weights. Follow that with resistance training and then cool down.

Your playing time is going to be determined largely by your work ethic. Natural talent counts for a lot, but success as a player is largely determined by work ethic. A player who offers drive and determination is even better than one who happens to have natural talent but is lazy.

It is impossible to change your height. You can become stronger, faster, wider, and more talented with the right type of practice. If you're dedicated to practicing, exercising, and eating correctly, you'll be able to achieve the results that you're after.

When you apply to colleges, provide some highlights of your play via DVD. Apply to a variety of schools. If you have a lot of choices, you are in the driver's seat.

A large build is an advantage on the field but you should not increase your body fat. Fat can be harmful as you get older, especially if you don't exercise as much. Add muscle mass to your body instead, and keep the fat ratio down.
