a. In the NBA they used to list players w/ shoes. That means a 6'6 guy could actually be a 6'4 striker or CB. Think we could use those? b. What about the regularly-heighted dudes or shorties who chase a pro basketball career w/ futility, while missing out on adding to the soccer academy ranks? c. American football is another sport. In it you have a lot of soccer-heighted db's & wr's who possess tremendous dexterity & speed that may have translated to soccer. Former Packer WR Antonio Freeman's son is a highly-rated FB w/ Orlando City. Wouldn't have happened in yesteryear.
