Even though our Philadelphia Eagles had a rough end of season (to say the least), here at TT2G we are still excited for the Superbowl which will be played this Sunday, February 11th!   

We wanted to go over some terminology (in a kid friendly way) to help you understand the positions of the players so you can follow along!  Let’s embark on a journey to uncover the football positions.

1. Quarterback – The Field General

Meet the quarterback, the brain behind the offense! The quarterback is like the team’s leader, responsible for making decisions, throwing passes, and leading the team down the field. They’re often called the “signal-caller” because they call plays and signal instructions to their teammates.

2. Running Back – The Speedster

Imagine a player with lightning-fast legs who zigzags through the defense – that’s the running back! Running backs carry the ball, dodge defenders, and aim to score touchdowns by running into the end zone. They need speed, agility, and the ability to change direction quickly.


3. Wide Receiver – The Catching Maestro

Ever seen someone leaping into the air to catch a high-flying ball? That’s the wide receiver! These players use their speed and hands to catch passes from the quarterback. They’re like acrobats on the field, making incredible catches and scoring touchdowns.


4. Tight End – The All-Around Player

Tight ends are a mix of strength and skill. They can catch passes like wide receivers and block like offensive linemen. Tight ends line up close to the offensive linemen and can be versatile playmakers, contributing to both passing and running plays.


5. Offensive Linemen – The Protectors

Imagine a group of giants forming a human shield – that’s the offensive line! These players protect the quarterback and create openings for the running backs. The offensive line consists of positions like tackles, guards, and a center, working together to keep the defense at bay.


6. Defensive Players – The Stoppers

Defense wins games, and defensive players are the heroes who stop the opposing team from scoring. Defensive linemen, linebackers, cornerbacks, and safeties work together to tackle runners, block passes, and intercept the ball.

7. Special Teams – The Kickers and Punters

Special teams handle kicks, punts, and field goals. Kickers and punters have strong legs to send the ball flying through the air or make precise kicks for extra points and field goals.


Now that we’ve unveiled the playbook of positions in football, get ready to cheer for your favorite players and enjoy the excitement of the game!
