100 Names for Linebackers on a Youth Football Defense

Rover LinebackerI guess I was a little bored today and started looking at linebacker position names like Mike, Sam and Will.  We’ve all heard of these names for LBs but I decided to dig a little deeper and see what other names have been used over the last 100 years of football.  I made up a few of my own too as to complete the 112 name list of linebackers.

I have tried to separate the names out into the various linebacker responsibilities but don’t hold me at 100% correctness.  You should use this as a tool to come up with your own linebacker names for your youth football team’s defense.

Here we go naming linebackers…..
