    I'm not terribly worried about this, but I was wondering if anyone had any suggestions for sports I could play at the academy.
    I've played plenty of sports, most recently varsity football. I was successful in high school, but I don't expect to be able to walk on to the football team. I'm an ok runner long and short distance (19min 5k, 4.8 40m.dash). Is say my best athletic attribute is my legs, I squat 350- fairly good for someone 5'11 and 165 lbs.
    any suggestions for a club sport I could try?

    You should try crew. Typically the crew guys are over 6 feet tall, but with your stats, I think you'd do well. Going out on the water is really fun, but be advised, the ERG machine gets old.

    Good Luck!

    Rugby is also a possibility. Think it's a club sport.
