Ouch buddy. I'm not going to lie to you because thats not how i am, i hope you do not prefer the sugar coated "don't sweat it" to the stuff i spew.
You're not as badly off as you think you are, which is a great. you're only a freshman so you have lots of time to improve. plus, you're not fully grown! which is a great bonus. so by the end of hs you will be taller most likely. nothing happens overnight so you have to be patient. just keep pushing yourself. as for getting faster, isn't that the question eh? well i'd suggest sprints and maybe 100m then 100 m jog, 100m sprint then 100 m jog, that's super tiring tho. you should check up the threads in this forum because there have been many many topics on this with lots of good suggestions. as for gettng burnt, if you want to play those positions you will have to be better at defending. u wanna learn to slide tackle well, and how to nick the ball from ppl running at you. if someone take you on, keep a good distance between you two and don't get caught out. make sure you're in the stance that will allow you to break on either side as quickly as possible if he tries to pass you. and ultimately, learn to read them, let them make the first move and when they pull the move stick your foot out and poke the ball. if everyone is trying to push you off the ball you should learn to spin off people. or pull the ball back so they keep moving but you change direction. learn to use your arms so that you are doing legal arm movement and keeping space but not fouling them, i don't know how to explain this you should watch some games where defenders need to keep the attacker away from the ball in their own half, usually near the corner spots. if u're slow don't run in a straight line is all i gotta say. make sure u can ball control well, and use the outside of your foot and go around in a circle, very useful for CMs. if i were you i'd try to develop speed because you will need that to beat a defender and cross from the LM spot. CM's need to be fast too, you're still growing, take advantage of that. hope this helps and goodluck.
