"H Pro" Formations

Are these formations any different than their "Normal" or "Twins" counterparts? I know there are other "H Pro" sets as well.

For example, is there a difference between I: H-Pro and I: Normal? This is what I'm getting at?

If so, what is it and what does the "H" terminology mean?

H likely refers to 'h-back' which is essentially a FB/TE hybrid. Not too many teams use an H-back anymore, however. It usually needs to be a player that is good at everything; Blocking, Receiving, Rushing occasionally.

In game is there a difference between the "H" formations and their "Normal" equivalent?

Well I was wrong on the h-back thing. The only difference that I can see is that the receivers are tighter in "H" formations.

Re: "H Pro" Formations

I'm pretty sure the 'H' refers to there being an H-back in the formation. You'd notice this if what would be the traditional FB is in a "2-point stance" instead of a 3-point.

Basically, the only difference is that it makes that back more of a receiving threat, while still providing the blocking ability.

Im sure you have the option to sub a TE in place of the FB in H-Back formations. You really wouldn't need to though, unless your default FB isn't a receiving threat. Also, there are many Shotgun formations that use an H-back, even if it isn't notified. It'll just be a FB/TE in a 2-point stance lined up close to the LOS. (Check Oregon's PB, for example)

It's really good to use if you have a skilled FB with hands, or two really good TEs, and you want to get the on the field as much as possible.

Re: "H Pro" Formations

Aside from the previously noted different stances for the fullback,
the only other real difference is that the two receivers are flip flopped:

In I-Form Normal, a teams number one receiver is lined up in a slot
on the strong side (TE side).

In I-Form H Pro, a teams number one receiver is line up on the weak side.

The actual plays in H Pro are virtually the same as those in Normal.
I never use H Pro because the I-Form Normal has plays the H Pro doesn't.
