If there are any standard translations of terms like fullback, tailback, wide receiver, runningback and so forth, my impression after browsing around a few Czech American Football pages is that few in the game itself here appear to use them. The Brno Alligators have a useful run-down of the game with some handy terminology at http://www.alligators.cz/pravidla.htm
but they seem to mostly prefer the original AmEng terms or abbreviations thereof. I seem to remember there is a new English-Czech sports dictionary in the shops so I'll try to wangle a sneak peek next time I'm in town. Otherwise, isn't this Tomas Skront's department? He might have a few ideas.
