What is the average size of a high school safety?
I was 6'2 180 and did fine at the varsity level. And by the 5'9 165 is way to small, especially if your playing strong safety. Because you'll be up at the line of scrimmage a lot taking on blocks
Free Safety: 5'10-6'2 170-185 Lbs Strong Safety: 5'10-6'3 190-210 Lbs Strong Safeties need to be a little bit bigger because they're closer to the line of scrimmage. And will be taking on blocks from pulling guards and tackles. I played Strong Safety in 2011 and went 1st team all conference. I'm 6'2 185 Lbs
