    Hey my size has never really bothered me but ive always wondered what was a normal size for sixteen or being a softmore. I am 6'2" 198 pounds and play left gaurd on my schools jv and varsity team am i average size or over averaged? im taller than everyone except 3 or 4 kids in my class in a class of 135. I also weightlift with the football team during the summer and can bench 185 squat 225 and power-clean 165 is that and ok strength or is it too low? their are alot more people stronger than me but their are alot that are weaker too.

    You say you are taller than all but three so that sounds like you are above average in height. Next you say you say there are alot weaker and alot stronger than you. Sounds like you are average in that area. You answered your own questions. Or did you want to hear something else?

    You seem pretty fair. 6'2 is tall compared to an average of what 5'10 or 5'11 in your class. You are not fat being 198 pounds. You weight lift and you are a tall boy which puts on a few more pounds compared to someone shorter. Just keep inshape and your health will be fine.

    I don't know, if your strenght is average, you may want to watch the weight a little bit. But it also may just be muscle.

    I think you're pretty average, and don't compare weight with size, I bet a lot is muscle too, it's heavier. Plus there's no 'correct' height for any age (right?).
