145 lbs is not that heavy. If you want to play quarterback you don't have to be big but, If you want be physical, you have to bulk up. Go to GNC and pick up Cretine and that will add weight to your muscles, make sure you drink a lot of water. Get explosive with your steps. 1 year is a whole lot of time. Just keep lifting, don't play tennis, it's a sissy game. play a real man's sport. my 2 cents :twisted: :shock:

THATS WHAT I THOUGHT! For a while. I want to be phyiscal.. Im going to bulk up with some whey but then I might not be able to play tennis.. my coach played in HS thats why its hard for him cause hes big but yeah just keep lifting! I herd on the radio on my way to practice that some team sprayed spam on their jerseys to make it harder for them to get tackled I thought I would like to share that . :p my 2 cents.

I recommend lifting for endurance, don't lift for shape. Muscles weigh less than fat.

Why do you want to go out for the football team? Even if you do make it you aren't going to play organized football after high school from the way it sounds. Work on your tennis game which you can play for the rest of your life. I played a lot of other sports during high school and if i had to do it over again I would have just concentrated on Tennis.

just my 2 cents 8)
