In the lingo of football, the term athlete is abbreviated as ATH. A list of players, including their positions, names, and schools, is available for potential recruiters to peruse. A football player is considered an all-around talent (ATH) if he is versatile enough to play in a number of different positions and does not have a clear position specialty.
Because he can be trained to specialise in a position of the coach’s choosing, a player who is listed as ATH is more versatile than other players. As a result of his athleticism, he is able to play any one of a number of different positions on the field. Richard Sherman, an outstanding cornerback for the Seattle Seahawks, played wide receiver, punt returner, and defensive back in high school. As a result, when he was recruited by Stanford, he was listed as an all-around athlete (ATH).
