POINTS OF CONSIDERATION

  • SITUATION: A scrimmage kick by R1 is caught by R1, who advances to K’s 10 yard line. During the run by R1, there is clipping by R2 at K’s 30-yard line and K2 grabs the facemask of R1. How will you administer the fouls? Keep in mind PSK and possession. (10-2-2) (10-2-3)
  • SITUATION: Many of you saw the college game between North Texas and Arkansas. A punt returner, after catching the football, stood, as if he had called for a fair catch and the defenders stood and then moved away from the return man, without making contact or tackling the return man. Once, they moved away, the runner took off down field. Obviously, this was discussed with the official, as no whistle was blown to end the play. How will you handle this situation? Where does this fall in deception and Unfair Acts? With risk minimization at a premium, the punt returned is a defenseless player during the kick. Should a football move be expected? Not everything is covered in the rule book, therefore, Rule 9-9 gives coverage on unfair acts.
  • QUESTION: Does the NFHS have rule coverage regarding a player lying on the ground to deceive opponents at or immediately before the snap or free kick? (9-6-e)
  • QUESTION: Who is afforded protection, when a valid fair catch signal is given? (6-5-1,2,3)
  • SITUATION: Free Kick following a safety. The kicking team has the option of punting the ball from the 20 yard line. Once the ball is punted, the receiving team coaches are telling their players to clear and move away from the ball that is bouncing on the ground. The kicking team recovers the football. Is this legal? Who has possession of the football now? (6-1-6). Remember, this is a free kick.
  • SITUATION: Where is the ball spotted following penalty acceptance when it is snapped from the right-side hash mark and the run ends in the left-side zone? Does it matter what foul occurred? (10-1-1) Take a look at the Case Book.
  • REMINDER: All forceful blindside blocks must occur with open hands.
  • REMINDER: Class 3A, 2A, 1A, and 8-Player Divisions are all competing in district play. Remember the importance of marginal points. The maximum number of marginal points is 21 in these classifications.

HAVE A GREAT WEEK 4!
