Texas Topics / Re: When does TASO start new/renewal applications for football?
« Last post by ElvisLives on January 18, 2019, 02:48:51 PM »
I just got the email this afternoon that TASO football registration is open.  You have until April 23rd (according to the email) to register without a late fee.

Have you registered?  What's the hold-up?  ;D

Thanks jj06878.  Can I ask where those came from?

I'm assuming it's confirmed that it's variations from the NFL rulebook?

Thanks for the suggestions! For the record, my long term goal is to get to the NFL, but I don't believe that is possible without going through the NCAA ranks first.

Whoa.  Even those with common second generation last names go through NCAA first.

Goals are nice.  If I don't go up any further than I currently am, I will be content with it.  I worked my donkey off to get here.

I don't want to leave my current HS association, because of the family atmosphere and camaraderie, but this association has limited games available, and does not tolerate people working for other associations, except for the officials on loan to the MD group (those officials are DC members who don't have games that Friday, and who work with the approval of the DC commissioner and MD commissioner).

Hmm, that sounds like an association in serious jeopardy of being classified as an employer if they truly restrict opportunities like that. What do they do if you do join a MD or VA association?

Ralph:
Don't forget the DoG penalties that can occur after the play is over.    3-6-2
Thanks for the clarity, Ga Umpire, I was thinking of fouls that could either be live or dead ball fouls.

Thanks.

So they are the primary differences but changes from the NFL Rulebook or NCAA?

Probably NFL

Thanks for the suggestions! For the record, my long term goal is to get to the NFL, but I don't believe that is possible without going through the NCAA ranks first. This is why I asked about college. I'll also talk to my HS commissioner (he is a former ACC Umpire, so he should know how the college world works). I'll see what clinics I can get to, and what sort of pre-season scrimmage opportunities are there over the next few years.
