7 Stereotypes on Every Football Team

No matter what level of football you are playing at, these 7 types of teammates will be on your team, guaranteed.

1) The Lunk

Not the brightest guy usually, but always fun to be around.

2) Pretty Boy Quarterback

He never looks as old as the rest of the guys because he has a baby face, but for some reason the girls love him. Yes he is a great leader, charismatic guy, clutch quarterback, but you are secretly jealous of him.

3) The Immovable Object

He is always cracking jokes about himself, and is the most comfortable guy on the team in his own skin.  He loves showing his belly, and even has people rub it for good luck before games. Yes, he is always last in running, but it is not from lack of effort. He cannot be blocked or moved ever. He wins all the food eating competition in town, and has his picture hanging in three different restaurants for his first place finishes.  One thing you can count on with this guy is he will always ask for your leftovers.

4) The Mood Swinger

Just be careful around this guy, you never know what will put him over the edge.

5) Nature’s Gift to Earth

You never see him workout, but he is the fastest most talented player you have ever seen.  He eats only fast food, yet maintains perfect physique.  He does not know the plays, yet coach still puts him ahead over you because, well, he is just a lot more talented. You resent him at all times, but you wish you were him or at least had half of his talent. He is also probably the only guy on your team with a legit shot at the NFL.

6) The Kicker

He loves telling everyone he is a football player and on the team, and every time you overhear him tell somebody you cringe.  The worst part about it is he is actually one of the most important components to your team and can either win you games or lose you games. You need him and that is why you kind of act like you like him.

7) The Team Rudy

He adds a sense of inspiration to the locker room and everyone loves him.
