About This Quiz

There's no doubt that there are some significant differences in the personality traits between each position on the field. We're going to examine your relationship to the game, both on and off the field, and we're going to ask you about how you interacted with your teammates and the opposing team. 

For example, if you're someone who marches to the beat of your own drummer and the kind of person who parties until the wee hours of the morning, we're leaning in the direction that you were a kicker. Should you also happen to mention that you're a highly superstitious person who is used to being a bit of an outsider on your team, our confidence would with this choice would definitely grow.

Then again, perhaps you're the kind of player who is vicious and intimidating on the field, but a charismatic and friendly personality off of it. If you love to deliver a solid hit and can motivate others to elevate their efforts to the next level, you sure sound like you're a linebacker to us.
