Ht. 5'8", Today: 150 lb (BMI %tile: 72) - Hi everyone! i'm new to this site and have a question to ask. ok, i'm a Junior in high school, and I play soccer and basketball. Recently, my basketball coach has referded to me as being "husky". I'm not sure what it mean, and i never thought of myself as fat or over weight before. i'm 5'8 and 150-ish. Any advise or at least the meaning of the word would be helpful, since I can not seem to find a clear-cut def. in the dictionary. Thanks so much!!!

You're not overweight, don't worry about it. You have a good weight for your height and probably have a lot of muscle. He does probably mean husky by having muscle.

I always understood that word to mean muscular and strong.

maybe he means you are a rough player. i thought husky meant a rough voice? i dunno. dont worry about it. If you are a good player then who is he to comment?

it dosnt necesarily mean your overweight. He probably refered to you as very muscular.
