The hole numbering system is used to assign where the play will go. The following rules apply for this universal system. The ODD numbered holes are to the left, and EVEN numbered holes are to the right. The area between the Center and Right Guard is the "2 hole." The area between Right Guard and Right Tackle is the "4 hole." The area between the Right Tackle and Tight End is the "6 hole," and the area outside of the Tight End is the "8 hole." The same rules apply to the opposite side of the line with the personnel corresponding to odd numbered holes of "1," "3," "5," and "7." The Fullback is the 4-Back, and the Tailback is the 3-Back.
