Yes, short people can play football as long as you like to hit and can play the position well. It depends on your definition of short, I have known short people to play linebacker and they have been one of the best football players I have ever played with throughout my football career so far. Plus when you're in peewee football the little kids are short and still play Linebacker. There has been people in the NFL who have been shorter then average linebackers and are some of the best linebackers in NFL history.
