  1. Wide receiver A85 while running his route steps on the sideline at B’s 40 YL, returns inbounds at B’s 36 YL, and catches a pass. He then runs to B’s 20 YL where he is tackled.

  2. With time expiring in the second or fourth period and A behind in the score, A1 intentionally throws the ball forward to the ground in order to stop the clock. A1’s action took place immediately after receiving the snap while A1 was lined up 3 yards deep.

  3. KT’s punt goes approximately 35 yards downfield in the air where it lands on the foot of a KT player then continues to roll another 35 yards where it is downed by KT.

  4. A’s ball third and six from B’s 16 YL. A11’s forward pass is simultaneously controlled near the EL by airborne A82 and B31. Both have control of the ball when they land in the EZ, with B31’s feet inbounds in the EZ, and A82’s feet landing on top of players. They then go immediately out of bounds over the EL.

  5. On fourth and four from A’s 35­yard line, KT comes to the line in a scrimmage formation. After calling a few signals, A1 says “shift.” All 11 players then make a movement. Some players move to a new position for a scrimmage­kick formation, while four interior linemen remain in place and move from a hands­on­thighs position to an upright position and finally to a three point stance.

  6. During a Try, R1 jumps and steps on the back of snapper A1 immediately after the snap as he propels himself into the air in an attempt to block the kick. The Try kick is good.

  7. During a field goal attempt, R5 who is in the EZ leaps up and touches the ball which caroms through the uprights, above the crossbar.
