where practically any body type can be a star. No need to be a freak of nature.

Typically, backs are taller than forwards, but Cristiano Ronaldo, is nearly 6'2".
In Notre Dame's 2023 recruiting class, Meghan Mrowick, a forward, is a very good basketball player also. She is 5'10".

It is helpful to have a "college size body" since it is a rough, physical game. Also, being tall allows one to get up on headers. Again, I would say generally coaches prefer taller backs than forwards, but a quick, tall forward would be great.

Sounds like you, your wife, and your son all had a good time at the game!
