  1. Lineman

    In American football, a lineman is a player who specializes in play at the line of scrimmage. The linemen of the team currently in possession of the ball are the offensive line, while linemen on the opposing team are the defensive line. A number of NFL rules specifically address restrictions and requirements for the offensive line. The defensive line is covered by the same rules that apply to all defensive players. Linemen are usually the largest players on the field in both height and weight, since their positions usually require less running and more strength than skill positions.

Examples of Lineman in a Sentence

  1. Thomas DiMassimo:

    No, not at all. There would have been no point. Donald Trump is 6 foot 3. I'm 5 foot 9, maybe. He's a giant man surrounded by thousands of followers, 12 Secret Service and a former Ohio State offensive lineman. That would have accomplished nothing. i thought my chances of getting up on stage and getting to the podium would have been better.

  2. Rashawn Slater:

    As far as the combine getting canceled, I knew Northwestern O-lineman was a possibility from the start, so, my focus was just being prepared for whatever happens, control what I can control. It's unfortunate, but it wasn't something I was super upset about.

  3. Gary Craven:

    He's a human being like the rest of us, instead of just a Democrat, i've read his book. I've listened to him speak going as back as far as the Barack Obama campaign. I worked 40 years as an electric utility lineman, a foreman, and I understand that experience counts. And some of these people, I don't believe have reached the level of experience to where they can handle the job that Trump is going to leave us.

  4. Syd Kitson:

    Josh Day wife added : I think we’re pretty all in ! We live here. We work here. Babcock Ranch, near Fort Myers on state’s west coast, was developed from the beginning with a massive solar power farm generating 100 percent of the electric needs. About 350,000 photovoltaic solar panels stretch across a swath of land the size of 200 football fields. When developer Syd Kitson, a former NFL lineman with the Dallas Cowboys and Green Bay Packers, bought the 17,000-acre property, it was all old mining and farmland. Babcock Ranch, near Fort Myers on state’s west coast, was developed from the beginning with a massive solar power farm generating 100 percent of the electric needs. About 350,000 photovoltaic solar panels stretch across a swath of land the size of 200 football fields. It’s now the country’s first, fully solar city, with a very low carbon footprint, a soon-to-open school, electric shuttles that will eventually be driverless, a cute town square with shops and an emphasis on the environment and preservation. Where most developers would build and sell as many homes as possible, for greater profit, Kitson’s vision from the beginning was preserving most of the open space, now encompassing several lakes and 50 miles of bike trails. The homes run from $ 190,000 to about $ 499,000. Residents can work in the town, but are not required to do so. The fully completed footprint will eventually be 19,500 homes. We think about the way we develop differently …. It’s the most environmentally responsible, the most sustainable new town that’s ever been developed, and, it’s the first solar-powered town in America. And we’re very proud of that. In January, the first two people moved in. Now, there are 150 homes under contract with an expectation that will there will be 250 families moved in by December. Eight developers are now building homes. The vision is a unique creation of a 45,000-person small city. But first came the enormous solar farm. Syd Kitson gave the land to Florida Power Light for free, which then spent more than $ 100,000,000 installing all the panels, wires and storage batteries. That solar-generated power now is shared throughout FPL’s grid, as Babcock Ranch’s demand, at this point, remains very small. John Woolschlager, an urban planningprofessor at nearby Florida Gulf Coast University, said all cities canultimately follow Babcock Ranch’s model, but Florida Gulf Coast University will take years. Babcock Ranch’s huge advantage was that Babcock Ranch huge advantage’s being built from scratch with theself-sustainability and pro-environment philosophy on the ground first.
