What are the running black holes?


Answer by  Escalera1 (18)

Runningback holes are specific areas between the linemen in which a runningback is supposed to run through. The holes have specific numbers and are told when calling a play. By doing so, the runningback and linemen are prepared to assist the runningback through.

Running back holes are simply the holes in between the center and guard, and the guard and tackles in which they run through, which are created by the offensive lineman.

There is no such thing as running "black" holes, so I believe that you mean running back holes. Running back holes are gaps in between the linemen that the running back is supposed to sprint through. The running back is an offensive position.

Running back holes, not black holes, are the gaps between the lineman after the ball is handed off that the running back run move through.


Answer by  Brett (7986)

Running back holes are the lanes or holes opened up by the offensive lineman (in between the center and guard or guard and tackles).


Answer by  Lmukeeper (262)

Linemen in football are designated to move the opposing team's linemen in order for a running back to break loose carrying the football. The space that they open up for the running back is called the running back hole.

The running back holes are the area that is clear of defensive players by the offensive players. On each play the offensive players are given a play where there is a designed spot for the running back to break through at.
