I 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…..
Mike, Sam and Will
|Strong / Field||Middle L-backer||Weak / Boundary|
Outside Linebackers and Inside Linebackers
|Left OLB||Rt OLB||Inside LB|
|Lefty / LT||Rhino||Pike|
|Lakeside||Arty / RT||Charlie|
|OLB Def End||SS/DB OLB|
This list is over 100 linebacker names and most of them have been actually used by College and NFL football teams in the past. I hope you enjoyed this list of LB names. If you have any names that you have used in the past please leave them in the comments below.
