My son thinks it would be the fullback, who can also run the ball. But he thinks it could also be the guard. -----
Your son knows his football Crystal. There are five offensive lineman whose primary job is to block: one center who snaps the ball to the quarterback, two guards, and two tackles. The fullback is a running back who lines up near the halfback, is usually bigger than the halfback, and helps to block when the halfback is given the ball.
