I am 6 feet tall 150 pounds and I am having a hard time finding that one position that I feel comfortable with can anyone help me
ps I run pretty fast and use my angles well but I am not the most accurate guy, but I do conserve paint well

Its just a matter of playing a lot. There may be some spots like the snake or a certain bunker that you will never feel TOTALLY comfortable in but its really about being able to play anywhere on the field. There shouldnt be just one or even two positions or bunkers you can play.

You want to play tall pins usually located back right or left; you can use your height to pop out at various diff heights each side making you a hard target to read and allowing you several blind spots the shorter players can't shoot.

Truthful i couldn't find a position that suited me till I went and tried them all, it took some time to find what I was good at and what I liked, I know it sounds odd to say but a I play snake but I'm 6 foot and before playing snake, I never thought i was cut out to even play it. I'm not sure many teams want or have a 6 foot snake player but hey... if it works it works. As long as you try different things and find something that works, stick with it and have a good time doing it. Just my 2 cents

I think picking a single position based on your body size or whats comfortable is one of the worst possible things to do to your game. Just mix it up and become competent at everything and youll naturally become really good at what your talents suit while still being versatile.

Don't think you can't play a position because of your size. 

I'm 6'4, 200lbs, and I play snake when my team goes out and scrims (no tourneys yet), and I absolutely love it. Honestly, being taller helps my crawling, lets me propel faster and farther with each push with my longer legs. It's all a matter of learning to keep your ass down, listen to your backs and know when to take a shot. Being taller also helps you shoot over and get better angles on snake knuckles. My advice is give it a shot.

I am a human sasquatch and I have been known to play everywhere. 

Doritos, Cans, hell even snake. Paintball all comes down to being comfortable with your body and having good spatial awareness.

 

Dont stick things out of bunkers to be shot, learn how to play tight and you wont have any issues anywhere.

This is true of every sport. I'm 5'10 and I'm my schools back-up varsity goalkeeper(I start at striker).

 

Just try everything, get comfortable in every bunker.

Pretty much just mess around. Try different positions. Play everywhere. Just play every bunker until you find your style.
