My sons playing weight was 295 in 1997 his senior year.....

Frank Solich recruited him to Nebraska and on his visit he ate with the offensive linemen after a session of weight lifting. He ate the entire weekend there and they gave him a schedule of how to eat along with a schedule on what to eat before lifting weights with creatine shacks. He weighed 295 but the weight coach told him he needed to be 320 to play left tackle at Nebraska. My wife was discusted and I had deers in the headlights all the way home from the airport after he told everything. Today he is still 6'4" but weighs 220 with four grand children and bad knees.
