The H-Back is a position that few admit to or knowingly use. However, they’re showing up more and more across the world of Football. In the NFL, Travis Kelce has been playing the role since his emergence in 2014. In college, the Oklahoma Sooners have had a pair of H-Backs helping in their bread-and-butter counter game for at least the last 5 years. Last but not least, the High School ranks have been attempting to use everything the next level does for ages, and the H-Back is just the next thing to trickle down to their level in mass.
On this episode we’re focusing on identifying what a H-Back is, the benefits of using one, and how you can fit a H-Back into the offensive scheme you’re already running. You may be closer to having one than you think. It may be as simple as changing the designator in your playbook.
