NFHS Rules

  1. As the officials are walking onto the field for pregame with the HC’s, the U notices many players with their knees showing. He asks the VT HC to please have them pulled down. One player starts to roll his down and the U notices he is not wearing knee pads. He addresses this with the HC. The HC speaks to his player and finds out he left them at their school along with 7 other starters. The crew discusses this and allows it just for this one game.

  2. The HT has been called for 8 holding calls during the 1st half. He explains to the R that his staff teaches the players as long as their hands are inside the frame, they can legally grasp the jersey. He states this was covered in a football coaching clinic as being legal.

  3. Team A comes to the LOS. A 80 is the snapper and is on the end of his offensive line. There are 5 players to his left numbered 50-79. At the snap A80 goes downfield and catches a forward pass.

4 A, 2/10 @ B’s 20 YL with 1:43 remaining in the 2Q. A 34 runs OOB to stop the GC. After he is OOB he is hit by B54. He is penalized for a DB personal foul- late hit. The LJ asks his A’s HC if he wants the GC to start on the RFP.

  1. A, 4/6 @ B’s 10 YL. A12 throws a forward pass to A80 @ B’s 2 YL. While trying the catch the pass A80 is hit, and the ball goes into the air. A83 bats the ball forward into B’s EZ where A81 catches the ball in B’s EZ, and the BJ signals a TD for A.

  2. With 4th & G from B’s 1 YL: (a) runner A1 is pushed at the LOS from behind by A2 in an effort by A2 to get A1 into the EZ; A1 scores a TD; or (b) without contacting A1, A2 & A3 push the pile forward into the EZ; A1 scores a TD.

  3. A 34 is injured and the GC is stopped to extend care by the trainer. A34 leaves the field. A’s HC calls a TO. He asks the LJ if he can send A34 back in since he called a TO (buying him back in with a TO). The LJ says “sure coach”.

OHSAA Mechanics

  1. During a measurement, the BJ faces the VT SL while holding the ball, blocking the PB from seeing the measurement.

  2. During the pregame conference with the HT HC, he informs the officials his team will always use an onside kickoff The R tells the HL and LJ no matter what they must start the first KO on the GL.

OHSAA Regulations

  1. At the end of the HT all officials are on the field when the GC goes to 0:00. The R throws a flag for delay of game on the VT as they are not on the field.
