Title: who are the best all-around athletes in sports?
Post by: dj181 on December 06, 2012, 05:47:22 AM
i'll go with running backs and defensive backs

they are fast, quick, fit, strong, and agile

boxers are damn good athletes as are basketball players, but the backs in football are the best IMO

Hard to say.  Athletic skill sets are so specific to the sport and to the position played that its difficult to determine who the best all-around around most athletic would be.

Rugby players, strong, fast, enduring, intelligent (all but forwards maybe), skill full with both feet and hand.

Fullback is offense the first back behind the Quarterback usually a big guy that blocks out the defensive guys opening it for the other back to run the ball.

ahhh interesting, i sucked so bad at football in hs when i played, my parents forced me to be on the team i didnt want to all i wanted to do was lift weights and jack off and look for hoes and of course drink 40's n smoke weed.

they moved me from defensive line to offensive line, i never knew what the fuck to do except run foward, then they started benching my sorry ass even though i had the highest upperbody lifts in the whole school haha

When benched was you seated next to the Cheerleaders you probably liked that better seems like you wasnt interested in playing Johnny. See #33 fullback in this video he mostly blocks for the other back to run.

Yeah. I'd say the ones who are lean but muscular, fast but strong. Middle-distance runners maybe, basketball players, boxers as said, etc.

In terms of "all round" athlete it's obviously an Olympic decathlete - it's not even close. Although any middleweight to cruiserweight boxer would definitiely have to be up there too.

In terms of physical fitness (where physical strength isn't such a huge factor) then I would take an Olympic triathlete.

you cant compare different aports like that, duuuh.

ppl cant even agree on what is a sport by definition.

a football player isnt gonna do well in a winter decathlon

there are major components of athleticism and they are as follows

1. strength 2. speed 3. power 4. agility 5. quickness 6. balance 7. coordination 8. stamina 9. endurance

so the question is, which athletes have highest levels of these components? i say football backs

but according to coach, golfers are athletes lol
