About This Quiz

When you take to the field, which side of the line do you find yourself on? Once we get to know how you handle the competition, we will be able to guess if you are an offensive player or a defensive player. All you have to do is be a good sport and answer the questions we give you. 

While every athletic mind has a lot of strength and resolve, some personalities are best suited to either play offense or to hold the line on defense. As we go through this quiz, we will ask a few questions about your athletic prowess and how you play the game. But we think the most telling signs of your position will be best gathered by examining your lifestyle and the way you handle everyday situations. 

Whether you are playing on the gridiron or the pitch, your attitudes and the way you carry yourself will show off your offensive or defensive side. Your dedication to your chosen sport and your outlook on the game will go a long way towards helping us make an accurate guess. 

Now, break from the huddle and answer our question like your scholarship depends on it. Then, we'll let you know if we think you belong on the offense or the defense. How will we do?
