Every state in the U. These federations oversee all-state awards, name district all-stars, and compile records of achievement. This table shows how the rules governing high school football differ from NFL rules. For example, if an NFL runner slips and inadvertently touches the ground, he can get up and keep moving forward. The ball is ruled dead where the defensive player recovers it. The offense and defense can return fumbles.
Previously, a runner was not included in the definition of tripping. A change in the definition of a legal scrimmage formation was approved. A legal scrimmage formation now requires at least five offensive players on their line of scrimmage instead of seven with no more than four backs.
The committee noted that this change will make it easier to identify legal and illegal offensive formations. The final change approved by the NFHS Football Rules Committee for the season was a reduction in the penalty for illegally kicking or batting the ball from 15 yards to 10 yards.
A complete listing of the football rules changes will be available on the NFHS website at www. In addition, there were almost 30, boys who participated in 6-, 8- and 9-player football, along with approximately 2, girls who played the sport for a grand total of 1,, This adoption would allow state associations to develop protocols for use of video replay.
In order to enhance the ability to easily identify players, the committee has clarified the size requirements for jersey numbers through the season. The committee also added a new requirement that, effective in the season, jersey numbers must be a single solid color that clearly contrasts with the body color of the jersey. This change will make it easier to identify legal and illegal offensive formations. It is now a foul to intentionally use the lower leg or foot to obstruct a runner below the knees.
The new rule defines when 40 seconds will be placed on the play clock and when 25 seconds will be placed on the play clock. Proper Procedures for Weather Delays 2. Most of the time, the delay is due to lightning and thunder either lightningseen or thunder heard ; and when a suspension or delay occurs, the teams are sent toa safe, sheltered area until the weather situation has ended.
NFHS guidelines on handlinglightning and thunder delays require use of the minute rule, meaning when the game hasbeen suspended, play cannot resume until at least 30 minutes have elapsed following thelast sighting of lightning or the sound of thunder. Once the game is suspended, each furtherinstance of lightning or thunder requires a reset of the clock and the commencement of anew minute interval.
Seldom is there a problem with game officials or site administrators following the basicminute rule when there is lightning or thunder. However, some game officials andadministrators are not abiding by the mandatory halftime intermission and warm-up rulewhen there is a lightning delay near the end of the first half.
If there is such a delay late inthe second period, once the second period is completed, NFHS playing rules require a halftimeintermission of at least 10 minutes followed by the required 3-minute warm-up periodbefore the third period may begin. Coaches or game officials cannot shorten the halftimeintermission or the warm-up period.
However, both coaches could agree to shorten end the second period during the delay, and then the third period could start after the delayassoon as the mandatory warm-up period is completed. I have the case plays book for baseball and use the quizzes to keep rules fresh in mind.
