Thank you to NFL Flag for providing the following information on Player Positions and Game Play


Football offense positions:

  • Quarterback: The quarterback receives the snap and passes the ball or hands it off (they aren’t allowed to run with the ball after the snap).

  • Center: The center snaps the ball to the quarterback and then can run for a pass as a receiver.

  • Wide receiver: Depending on the play, some 5 on 5 teams field three receivers, or a couple receivers and a running back. The receiver runs designated routes to catch a pass (usually right and left receivers).

  • Running back: The running back takes a hand off and runs with the ball or throws it. They’re also eligible to receive a pass.

Football defense positions: 

  • Defensive back: The defensive back covers wide receivers, either man-to-man or zone. 

  • Safety: The safety stands further back from the line of scrimmage and is responsible for stopping opponents who get loose. 

  • Rusher: The rusher attempts to prevent the quarterback from passing the ball (must be at least seven feet off the line of scrimmage at the snap to rush the passer).
