Longitudinal Assessment of NCAA Division I Football Body Composition by Season and Player Age

American football is a unique sport in that it has well-defined positions on both offense and defense. Each of these positions has different physical demands that often require a particular body type to be successful. In general, most athletes are trying to maximize their lean muscle mass (LM) while keeping their fat mass (FM) low; however, the optimal total body mass (TM) for each position is highly variable.
