Consider the following sentence:

"He played a very good end on the football team."

What does it mean to 'play a very good end'?

Does it have anything to do with the position that one assumes in a team, for example, striker, forwards, quarterback, full back, etc?...

Christine ChristieWhat does it mean to 'play a very good end'?

I don't know if there is a position called "end" in soccer, but I've never heard of it. There is an end in American football. It is one of the players who can legally receive a forward pass. There are other varieties of end, but a plain "end" means the receiver. He is called that because he starts each play at one end of the offensive line.

The sentence sounds non-native, by the way, because the indefinite article is unexpected and hard to understand.
