POINTS OF CONSIDERATION

DEFINITION: Hurdling is an attempt by a player to jump (hurdle) with one or both feet or knees foremost over an opponent who is contacting the ground with no part of their body except one or both feet. No player shall hurdle and opponent. (2-22) (9-4-3d)

PENALTY ENFORCEMENT: When can a free kick be repeated? (6-1-8)

SITUATION: A kickoff by K1 from K’s 40 is muffed by R1 near his/her 20-yard line. The muff is caught by K2 at the 18 and advanced into R’s end zone. What is the ruling? (2-27) (6-1-6)

SITUATION: K1 is in scrimmage kick formation, muffs the snap, but quickly recovers and begins to run, but changes his/her mind and punts on the run. (Legal) What if R1 is unable to stop and charges into K1? What if the contact was unavoidable? Does this make a difference? (9-4-5)

QUESTION: At the snap, how many A players are required to be on the line-of-scrimmage? Are there player number requirements? What if this was an 9-player game? (1-4-3, 7-2-5b, pg. 87 of the NFHS Rule Book)

SITUATION: Erroneously, the chains are set before the enforcement of a dead-ball foul, instead of following the enforcement guidelines. Up to what point can this be corrected? (5-1-1)

SITUATION: K1 punts from midfield and R1 give a valid fair-catch signal at R’s 10-yard line. R1 muffs the catch and the ball bounces toward R’s end zone. R2 recovers at the 1-yard line and their momentum takes them into the end-zone, where they are tackled. What is the ruling? (4-2-2)

REMINDERS: Continuing with the focus on risk minimization, unless initiated with open hands, it is a foul, for an y player to blindside hit an opponent, forcefully, outside the free-blocking zone. Excessive and Unnecessary contact must be enforced. (2-3-10 NEW, 9-4-3n NEW, 9-4 Penalty)

REMINDERS: The number one responsibility for game officials must be player safety. Any initiation of contact with the helmet is illegal; therefore, these fouls must be penalized consistently and without warning. Players must avoid illegal helmet contact, coaches must teach legal contact and officials must enforce the rule.
