HBs FBs TBs are all RBs. FBs to be the OG that RBs, and also were originally a complete length away from the LOS (line that scrimmage), therefore the "full". QBs to be a quarter size away, and also HBs a half length away. Eventually football evolved, and also FBs to be no longer the main ball carrier.

You are watching: Difference between fullback and halfback

Now the FB, if the sees the field at all, currently up in between the QB and the HB in an I-formation, or to the ideal or left of the QB in a shotgun/pistol formation.

The HB (TB) is the key ball transport on to run plays, while the FB is the key blocker ~ above run and also pass plays. Seldom does the FB go out for passes or lug the football.

There is likewise another position you need to be conscious of the has come to replace the FB in plenty of ways; the H-back, not to be confused with the HB.

The H-Back is a tight finish that sit behind the line of scrimmage and can be motioned right into the earlier field to play the duty of a FB, deserve to be motioned out into the slot in between the break-up end and the tackle, or deserve to act favor a timeless tight end.

An H-Back is a FB/TE hybrid typically used in West coast offenses. I used to beat H-Back as a FB and also would line up as the backside TE, a Slot Reciever or together a typical FB.

I think halfback and also tailback room interchangeable terms, but runningback includes that position, and the fullback position.

Fullbacks, tailbacks and halfbacks room running backs. I-Backs additionally fall right into this category(and periodically H-backs). To run backs room the team classification. Tailbacks room only offered when over there is a fullback present(as they space the tail end of the backfield). A running back would be a half back if they are the only running earlier on the field or in a separation formation/shotgun. I-Backs are just referred to in an I-Formation.
