Default I Want To Play American Football...

Yep, title of the thread says it all: next season (around Spring over here) I want to start playing American football (or just 'football' to most of you guys). We have a local team around here called the Berkshire Renegades and they seem pretty successful and well-run (especially considering the size of the sport in this country) so I'm planning on going to their rookie day that they host towards the end of the year, or the beginning of the next one.

You guys know a HELL of a lot more about the sport than I do, so I would really appreciate any advice in regards to what I'm getting myself into. Position wise, I'm thinking D-Line, but I'd love to eventually move to linebacker once I've learnt the sport, got fitter and faster, and lost some weight. But for now I think battering into dudes sounds like fun.

So basically I've got two main questions:
What general training should I focus on to prepare myself for starting the sport? A friend of mine and I are starting a 'Power Saturday' where we lift, throw, run, etc, but is there anything you guys can think of that would be extremely beneficial, training wise?

Secondly, I have a rough idea as to how the sport works, but could any of you give me advice in playing D-line, what to expect, and all that jazz?

Thank you all.


EDIT: Clear eyes, full hearts, can't lose!
