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…..

How to play Free Safety in the 6-2 Multi 8 Youth Football Defense

This free coaching video reviews how to play Free Safety in the 62 Multi 8 Youth Football Defense by Coach Parker. The 62×8 defense is based on the 6-2 defense, wide tackle 6 defense and the 5-3 defense. These are all proven pee wee tackle little league defenses that are played by many youth football teams across the country.

I review the FS / Fred alignments, main responsibilities,  blitz packages, issues and pass coverages used in the 62 Multi 8 Youth Football Defense.  The Fred is a very important player in the 62×8 since he is the only true defensive back playing pass coverage 100% of the time in most situations.  The Free Safety must be smart, fast, great open field tackler and know how to play Centerfield on a football field.  Check out the video for more information on how to play FS in the 62 Multi 8 Defensive System.

Playing Defensive Linemen in the 62 Multi 8 Youth Football Defense

These two videos review how to play defensive linemen in my 62 Multi 8 Youth Football Defense, which is based on the proven 6-2 Defenses, Wide Tackle 6 and the 5-3 defense used by many pee wee football teams in little league tackle football programs across the country.

The first video reviews how to play defensive tackle in the 62 Multi 8 defense.  Both Dan and Tom align in the many Multi 62 variants and then align in the odd 5 front 2 gap punch peekaboo hunt techniques.

In the second video I review the responsibilities for the 6-2 defenses A Gappers or defensive guards.  These two DGs anchor the middle of the defense.  I call these two players the kNob for Noseguard and GunR for Guard.  The kNob is the traditional big stocky defensive guard and the GunR is a hyrbid linebacker and defensive back that is very scrappy and good at penetrating the offensive line and also playing a linebacker / d-back when needed.

Check out both videos and all the 62 Multi 8 Youth Football Videos.  Enjoy.
