what skills do I need to be a good running back and make my high school football team?
Strength,speed,able to follow blockers, good vision, not fumbling the football, be willing to do anything the coach asks,good stamina,agility,mental and physical toughness, and you have to be able to block guys and occasionally catch some passes
Be fast, be able to take a hit, and be tough
Also be flexible strong quick feet and be able to hold on to the football
You need to be fearless cuz people are trying to kill you basically. Not a lot of RB's were superstars in highschool, they got that way by listening and being coachable.
Height, girth, and stunning speed.
You need to be able to feel no pain, to take a hit and stay on your feet, deliver a hit, and of course you must have a decent about of speed.
