ENFORCEMENT: What is the definition of a false start? (7-1-7) The NFHS rule book is clear. Do you ignore a false start? NO

  • A. Any shirt or feigned charge that simulates action at the snap.
  • B. Any act that is clearly intended to cause B to encroach.
  • C. Any A player on his line between the snapper and the player on the end of his line, after having placed a hand on or near the ground, moves his hand or makes any quick movement.

ENFORCEMENT: With the number of RPO’s being used in the game today, it is important to understand, it is important to remind officials and coaches, that no ineligible offensive player may advance beyond the neutral zone on a legal forward pass play before a legal forward pass that crosses the neutral zone is in flight. If the defense touches the pass in or behind the neutral zone, this restriction is terminated. (7-5-12)

SITUATION: Before A1 throws a pass beyond the neutral zone, A2 contacts lineman B1 on his line and drives him 4 yards backward. What is the ruling? Do you have a foul? This is beyond the expanded neutral zone.
(7-5-12) (Case Book 7.5.15 Situation B)

ENFORCEMENT: How do you enforce a non player being outside the team box? How many coaches can be in the restricted area? How many can be in the restricted area when the ball is live? (9-8-3) (Case Book Situation 9.8.3 Situ-ations)

SITUATION: During the first period, A1 is penalized 15 yards for an unsportsmanlike foul. In the third period, A1 is in the restricted area on the sideline and receives another 15-yard penalty for an unsportsmanlike foul. What do you have? (Rule 9-5) (Case Book 9.5)

COACHES: Avoid athletes standing in clusters on the sidelines. Utilize physical distancing. If a positive COVID case takes place, then avoiding the clusters might make the difference between an entire team being quaran-tined or a smaller group being quarantined.

REMINDER: Do your part to mitigate the exposure of COVID-19. The more you can do now, gives the students the best opportunity to play games during the entire season. http://www.kshsaa.org/public/pdf/ActSpecificConsiderations.pdf (Do not relax your mitigation strategies! Give the student/athletes a chance at a full season). The post season will be here very soon, so mitigate, wear masks and give kids the chance they deserve.
