Hard to believe we're almost halfway through the regular season.  It's flying by for sure.

Texas Topics / Unintentional disconcerting act?
« Last post by dammitbobby on Today at 12:58:32 PM »
Had an... unusual cause for a penalty Friday night.  6 man game, spread, coach on my sideline is A, just before the snap, he starts yelling to get his guys in the correct position - Over there, further,  GO!!! And on GO!!! he caused the defender right in front of me on the spread wing guy to jump across, as the ball was snapped.  He clearly reacted to the coach's yelling on the sideline, but I still had a flag down for offsides on the defense... I don't recall any disconcerting act rule that would allow us to wave off the penalty?  The coach was definitely yelling at his own players, but also definitely caused the defense to jump.

While a worthwhile effort, doubt seriously most parents or payers will take the time to look.

Oops. Got my math wrong on 5. A, 4/14, A-1, snap. (I had 4/13, A-1). My U wouldn't make that mistake, on the field.

Our Association is looking to put out some parent and player education on-line for misunderstood rules. Specifically, this is for 4th-8th grade football. We get too many parents trying to apply college or NFL rules to a NFHS rule set. Has anyone put together a list of rules that you would be willing to share that we could use to as a starter to our project?

This is slightly dated, but might be useful as a starting point:

Like I've said many times, they get their rules knowledge "as seen on TV"

All the details are clearly spelled out in NFHS 7-2-5b (exceptions) regarding both 1-3 down SKF and 4th down SKF & try .

For the benefit of those newer officials that find the rules language a bit circular could you enlighten us with a simple plain english answer?

Team A is trailing 21-20 in the 4th quarter and has just been awarded a 1st down after a long pass completed to the B-4 yard line and immediately takes a TO with 2 seconds on the clock.  Team A sends out the field goal team. What are the "restricted 5" numbering requirements?

Just make sure you keep it up to date as rules change.
