back in their prime? How far could you throw it and how old were you? How long since you have thrown one around.. regulation size. Picked one up the other day.. felt like it was filled with lead. I hadn't thrown a ball around in 40 years. It didn't go as far as I thought it should. bang

I could hit 50 yards regularly.
I'm sure I got close to 60.

I could catch better than I could throw. Had a guy that played D1 throw the ball to me once. Felt like it was filled with lead when I caught it. He could fling it.

Linebacker back in the day and throwing wasnt' my cup of tea.. However, having said that, I am positive I could throw my back out with ease....

I can still sling it around some, the largest I have thrown is NCAA size which I believe is 1-1.25" smaller than an N.F.L. ball. I mostly throw a pee-wee football on deep routes in receivers drills for my kids 6th grade team. Which in itself doesn't make sense because the QB can't accurately throw it that deep, but it's what the coach wants so...

never played much football

I played baseball and outfield. I could easily hit the catcher from the warning track even in the 15 year old range. I played softball till late 40's and could still hit home plate doubt I could hit the broad side of a barn now. LOL I am not sure I would even want to try now.

I never could throw a football well. Still cant. Baseball was my forte. Played many years as a yoot.

Never had a good arm. When I played a bunch of Slow pitch softball I always made sure the cut off man came way out…lol.

Well I've been throwing marshmellows at my raccoons ever day for years. If I had a video of it, you'd think I was shooting them out from a gun. The football is heavier than marshmellows and I was afraid I was going to tear something so I shut it down. Back at throwing a little today.. getting better, motion coming back, still got the tight spiral.
