  1. Actual play this year. A, 3/7 on A’s 45 YL. A throws a pass that is incomplete. During the play the HL throws his flag for the A HC being in the restricted area. No contact, but it is the second sideline noncontact interference. The R enforces the foul as a 5 yard penalty and lets A replay the down. A runs 5 plays during this series.

  2. Actual play this year. A22 is running for a TD. During the run, the HL makes contact with one of B’s coaches in the restricted area. As A22 continues to run, the LJ throws his flag for the second noncontact interference call against A’s coaching staff. How are the fouls administered?

  3. Actual play this year. K, 4/12 on K’s 6 YL. K1 punts the ball and K66 holds in K’s EZ. The kick is short and R10 makes a FC at K’s 15 YL. RT is behind by 5 points with less than 2 minutes left in the game. What are the RT’s options?

  4. There is less than 2 minutes left in the game. A16 is tackled inbounds by B36. After the play, B 78 commits a late hit on A16. A’s HC requests the GC start on the snap. Legal?

  5. A, 4/12 at B’s 45 YL with 14 seconds remaining in the 2Q. A6 drops back to pass, but then decides to run. At B’s 30 YL he throws a forward pass to A89 in B’s EZ. Time expires during the play.

  6. A26 fumbles at B’s 4 YL and the ball rolls into the EZ. B66 bats the ball over the end line to prevent the opponent from recovering it.

  7. A10 throws a screen pass to A26 behind the LOS. A66 and A78 have gone downfield on the play. The ball goes off the hands of A26 and crosses the LOS where it is caught by A88 for a first down.

OHSAA Mechanics

  1. The BJ and Wings decide to split each team’s game balls so they have one on each team’s own both sidelines.

  2. On a close, but short, play for a first down, the LJ stops the GC and tells the R to take a look. The R looks, and agrees it’s short, but since the GC is stopped, the R will show courtesy to the coaches by bringing out the chains.

OHSAA Regulations

  1. While checking the game balls in the locker room before the game, the Crew discovers the visitors’ game balls have a “tacky” feel to them. They don’t find any residue on the ball so they approve them.
