Pingry Youth Football Positional Camp
In football, every player on the field has a distinct role and specialized set of skills.For example, the quarterback is (usually) the only one to throw the ball. Receivers catch it; offensive linemen don’t. All these positions have to work together in order for the intricate plays designed by the coaches to work. Eleven people have to do their jobs at all times. There is no ‘most important’ player on the field.
What Are the Offensive Positions in Football?
There are 11 players on the field for the offense, working together on running and passing plays to move the ball toward the other team’s end zone. Once in that end zone, the team can hopefully score a touchdown or settle for a field goal, the two primary ways to score in football. Those 11 offensive players can come from these groups of positions:
5.Tight End (TE)
6.Wide Receiver (WR)
What Are the Defensive Positions in Football?
The 11 players on the field for the defense want to stop the other team’s offense from moving the ball or scoring a touchdown. They try to tackle the player who has the ball, knock down passes or even catch the pass themselves (a play called an interception). The defense plays these positions.
