Abstract Jacobson, BH, Conchola, EC, Glass, RG, and Thompson BJ. Longitudinal morphological and performance profiles for American, NCAA division I football players. J Strength Cond Res 27(9): 2347–2354, 2013—The aim of this study was to determine the changes in anthropomorphism and performance over a 4-year eligibility career of American football players. A total of 92 offensive and defensive linemen and 64 skill (wide receivers and defensive backs) player observations were included in the… Expand
Profiling of Junior College Football Players and Differences between Position Groups
TLDR
Compared to Division I data, junior college players were smaller, slower, and performed worse in jump tests, and there were no between-group differences in the strength endurance tests. Expand
Longitudinal Body Composition Changes in NCAA Division I College Football Players
TLDR
Results indicate that well-trained collegiate football players at high levels of competition can achieve favorable changes in body composition, even late in the career, which may confer benefits for performance and injury prevention. Expand
Muscle Characteristics and Body Composition of NCAA Division I Football Players
Abstract Melvin, MN, Smith-Ryan, AE, Wingfield, HL, Ryan, ED, Trexler, ET, and Roelofs, EJ. Muscle characteristics and body composition of NCAA Division I football players. J Strength Cond ResExpand
Fat-Free Mass Index in NCAA Division I and II Collegiate American Football Players
TLDR
Upper limit estimations for FFMI seem to vary by position; although the 97.5th percentile may represent a more suitable upper limit for the college football population as a whole, this value was exceeded by 6 linemen, with a maximal observed value of 31.7 kg·m−2. Expand
Relationships and Reliability Between a Drive Block Test and Traditional Football Performance Tests in High School Offensive Line Players
TLDR
The pro-agility shuttle splits, COD deficit, and SBJ may provide useful information about DBT qualities important for high school OL, and it is recommended high schoolOL training focus on strength, C OD performance, and jumping ability to aid drive block performance. Expand
Long-Term Changes in Jump Performance and Maximum Strength in a Cohort of National Collegiate Athletic Association Division I Women's Volleyball Athletes
TLDR
A combination of traditional resistance training exercises and weightlifting variations at various loads, in addition to volleyball practice, seem to be effective at increasing maximal strength by 44% and vertical JH by 20–30% in NCAA division I women's volleyball athletes after about 2.5 years of training. Expand
Efficacy of the National Football League-225 Test to Track Changes in One Repetition Maximum Bench Press After Training in National Collegiate Athletic Association Division IA Football Players
TLDR
Short-term heavy resistance training may alter the association between muscular strength and muscular endurance in college football players and render the NFL-225 test less effective in predicting the change in 1RM bench press strength after short-term training. Expand
Validity and Reliability of Hand and Electronic Timing for 40-yd Sprint in College Football Players
TLDR
Evaluated hand timing produces faster sprint times than electronic timing in college football players, independent of timer experience, and Repeated 40-yd sprint trials have high relative reliability regardless of timing method. Expand
Anthropometrics, Physical Performance, and Injury Characteristics of Youth American Football
TLDR
It is suggested that age-only criterion for player groupings can evenly match in terms of physical performance, and no practically meaningful differences existed in anthropometric or physical performance measures between teams within age-based levels of play. Expand
Longitudinal Changes in Body Composition Throughout Successive Seasonal Phases Among Canadian University Football Players
TLDR
Body composition and central adiposity seem to change differentially among positional groups across the annual training season among Canadian university football players. Expand
