Best Answer

Technically no, but someone without a background of high school and college football will generally not have the knowledge and technique necessary to play professionally. Additionally, it will be extremely difficult to attract a pro team's attention without having the college game to showcase yourself.

Rarely, teams hold open tryouts and an exceptionally athletic person (who normally has played football at a college, albeit possibly a smaller one) may get invited to the scout team.

How long is the training for an average football player?

The average football player starts playing football in high school. The amount of training depends on the individual. Young boys who want to play pro football probably work on training every day of their high school years. Then they go on to play college football. There are cases where a person will do a 'walk on' and try out for pro ball, but it is rare. Training camps for pro football usually go on for 6 weeks to 2 months before the season starts.
