NFHS Rules

  1. After reaching the LTG, the R signals first down and A is awarded a new series. A65 commits a UNS foul before the ball has been marked the ball RFP. After enforcement it is 1/25 for A.

  2. A, 2/5 @ B’s 40 YL. After the snap A12 hands the ball forward to running back A32 @ B’s 43 YL. The R throws a flag for illegal forward handling. The U comes in and tells the R it’s legal as long as the ball was handed forward in or behind the NZ.

  3. B27 realizes he/she is the 12 th person on the field. A is on B’s 3 YL. B27 runs backward through B’s EZ and across the EL in order to avoid a penalty. A snaps the ball and fumbles, B recovers.

  4. After K10 free kicks from K’s 40 YL, K10 is looking up at the airborne kick when R56 blocks K10 at K’s 43YL. The BJ sees the block, but no flag is thrown.

  5. K, 4/20 @ K’s 35 YL. K10’s punt is straight up and K56 catches the kick @ K’s 35YL. K56 runs the ball and is tackled at R’s 44 YL.

  6. K, 4/5 @ K’s 30 YL. R67 lines up over the snapper but doesn’t contact the snapper after the snap. The U throws a flag for illegal formation for R67 lining up over the snapper.

  7. Team R huddles. A substitute enters the huddle and within 2 seconds the huddle breaks. A player runs to his team box. The opposing team’s HC is yelling “they can’t break the huddle with 12 players, that’s a penalty”.

OHSAA Mechanics
