Do you lose weight and get taller by playing football?

The workout, practice and game schedule might well induce one to lose weight, but like all exercise any weight loss program also involves controlling one's intake. As to getting taller, the answer is absolutely not. You have the causation exactly backwards. Taller people have an advantage and therefore do better in the game (all else being equal), which means that players tend to be taller. The game doesn't MAKE them taller any more than basketball does.
