its a great start...all you have to do is gain great chunks of yards on the pitch and outside hand offs and do not fumble on the inside ones. it wouldn't be good enough fr college yet but you will gain eight when you get there. I am 5 9 170 and i am a running back at college. If you have good speed and acceleration, you can be a dynamic back. i do not block well. but i can catch the football and its helps our coaches t ave good options on the passing play.

What you need is to have speed of at most 4.4 and general quickness. I run a 4.16 and can catch on the run which helps me stay as the third down running back and kick returner

I would suggest Full Back. Your size is good for blocking for the Running Back, and your ability to catch and throw would be useful in that position (Full Back Is Usually Passed To)

What is a good size for a running back?

A good high school running back should have a lot of upper body strength as well a lower body strength. Generally the running back should be the most physically fit individual on the team. Having good biceps help with ball handling while shoulders and chest help with pumping your arms while running. I Guess you can say you have to be pretty buff to be a running back.
