How far should a 14 year old be able to throw a football?

I’m 14 in like a month and wondered how far I should be able to throw a football for my age. I think I can throw a football 30 yards. Is that below average, average or above average? The average as well might help.

  1. What is more important is throwing the ball with accuracy. At the age of 14 you should be able to throw anywhere from 30-40 yards as your body is still maturing. If you plan on playing varsity your first year you should be somewhere in the ball park of 50-55 yards. Use your body when throwing and not just your arm!

  2. i can throw 55 yards when playing daily and warming up your arm is very helpful for throwing far but its useless if ur not accurate and 30 yards is good enough to get the ball to the recievers so i think thats GOOD

  3. I could throw 50 yards at 13, so I am not sure, I think that 30 yards is good for a girl.

  4. I just recently turned fifteen,and I can throw accurately for about 35-40 yards if I have protection.But it doesn’t really matter,as long as you can get the ball to your WR’s,TE’s,HB’s ect.

  5. As long as you can get it to your receivers, you’ll be ok. Theirs no certain distance you should throw especially at 14. Just keep practicing and you will be fine.

  6. Far enough, and accurate enough, to get the ball to your receivers.
