Coaches at the service academies explain how they recruit. Key: undersized offensive linemen with really good grades. Before graduation they might have to go from 280 lb to 220 lb within 6 months, to comply with somewhat old-school fitness standards!
Losing 60 pounds in 6 months is no easy task!
Then again, it's not easy being an offensive lineman. Your job is to withstand huge impacts.
