Each of your players is first identified by his race.
Each player also has a type (linemen, receiver, ...) which gives him access to a set of specific skills. All players are identified by their name and jersey number.
Each player has four characteristics which define on-field abilities:
- Movement Allowance (MA): the number of squares the player can move and is also used when standing up after being knocked down.
- Strength (ST): determines whether your player or an opponent has the upper hand when they come to blows.
- Agility (AG): the player's aptitude for throwing the ball, picking it up, catching it or for dodging an opponent.
- Armour Value (AV): the value that an opponent must beat in order to hurt your player.
