4 FOOTBALL  Teams were warned last year about a potential rule change if helmets kept popping off.  Helmets kept coming off so several changes were made to address the problem. © 2012 TASO Football Division

5 FOOTBALL  Play clock change  Language (New item 13) “An offensive team player’s helmet comes completely off during the down. The play clock is set to 40 seconds if the helmet comes completely off a player of the defensive team. (Exc: With less than one minute remaining in either half the play clock is set at 25 seconds for any player.) © 2012 TASO Football Division Texas High Schools: Exception - No 40 second play clocks

6 FOOTBALL  Clock starting after a player has lost his helmet  Language (New item 16) “A player’s helmet comes completely off during the down.”  Result: Clock will be stopped at end of down as player had lost helmet and will be restarted on the Referee’s RFP signal. © 2012 TASO Football Division Texas High Schools: Exception -Not really

7 FOOTBALL  Player who loses his helmet will normally be required to leave the game for a play. © 2012 TASO Football Division

8 FOOTBALL  Language (New item 9) “a. If during the down a player’s helmet comes completely off, other than as the direct result of a foul by an opponent, the player must leave the game for the next down. The game clock will stop at the end of the down.” © 2012 TASO Football Division

9 FOOTBALL  Language (New item 9) b. When the helmet coming off is the only reason for stopping the clock, the following conditions apply: 1. With one minute or more remaining in either half the play clock will be set at 25 seconds if the player is on offense and at 40 seconds if the player is on defense. The game clock will start on the referee’s signal. 2. If there is less than one minute in the half the opponent has the option of a 10-second subtraction. The play clock will be set at 25 seconds. If there is a 10-second subtraction the game clock will start on the referee’s signal. If there is no 10-second subtraction the game clock will start on the snap. The10-second subtraction may be avoided by the use of a team timeout, if available. © 2012 TASO Football Division Texas High Schools: Exception - No 40 sec clock and no 10- sec runoff

10 FOOTBALL  Language (New item 9) “c. If the ball carrier’s helmet comes off as in paragraph a (above) the ball is dead (Rule q). If the player is not the ball carrier the ball remains alive, but he must not continue to participate in the play beyond the immediate action in which he is engaged. Prolonged participation is a personal foul (Rule ). By definition such a player is obviously out of the play (Rule b). “ © 2012 TASO Football Division

11 FOOTBALL  Notes on para c: If the player who loses his helmet is already engaged in blocking or tackling, he can continue that action without fouling. Once he disengages, he must stop. If the player immediately retrieves his helmet, he can secure it and resume participating, but he will still have to sit out 1 play. If someone forcefully contacts the helmetless player, he is guilty of a foul for hitting a player who is obviously out of the play (but same provision applies re “continuing action” as noted above) © 2012 TASO Football Division

12 FOOTBALL  Language (New item 9) “d. A player who intentionally removes his helmet during the down commits a foul for unsportsmanlike conduct (Rule a-1-i). “ © 2012 TASO Football Division

13 FOOTBALL  Had to be added as part of the change in Rule 3 re helmetless player  Language (New item 17) “A player whose helmet comes completely off during a down may not continue to participate in the play beyond the immediate action in which he is engaged. “ © 2012 TASO Football Division

14 FOOTBALL  NCAA kickoffs will now be from the 35, not 30 © 2012 TASO Football Division Texas High Schools: Exception - Still KO from 40

15 FOOTBALL  Team A must stay within 5 yards of their restraining line prior to KO’s (prevents long running starts prior to kick)  Language: (New para b) “After the ball has been made ready for play all players on the kicking team except the kicker must be no more than five yards behind their restraining line. A player satisfies this rule when one foot is on or beyond the line five yards behind the restraining line. If one player is more than five yards behind the restraining line and any other player kicks the ball, it is a foul.” © 2012 TASO Football Division

16 FOOTBALL  PENALTY: 5 yards, live ball foul, illegal formation © 2012 TASO Football Division

17 From time RFP is blown until ball is kicked, all Team A players (except kicker) must have at least 1 foot in “the zone”.

18 FOOTBALL  Touchbacks on KO’s will now result in ball being brought out to the 25, not the 20.  Language: (New para b) “If the result of the play is a touchback (Rule 8-6) for Team B, they will put the ball in play at their 25.” © 2012 TASO Football Division

19 FOOTBALL  Kick catch interference protection is extended to Team B players even when ball has been kicked into the ground, causing ball to bounce up into the air.  Language: (New para e) “During a free kick a player of the receiving team in position to receive the ball has the same kick-catch and fair-catch protection whether the ball is kicked directly off the tee or is immediately driven to the ground, strikes the ground once and goes into the air in the manner of the ball kicked directly off the tee. © 2012 TASO Football Division

20 FOOTBALL  The return of the “halo”, sort of.  Designed to create a more objective guideline to follow in kick catch interference situations  Language (New para a) “a. It is an interference foul if, before the receiver touches the ball, a Team A player enters the area defined by the width of the receiver’s shoulders and extending one yard in front of him. When in question it is a foul. “ © 2012 TASO Football Division

22 FOOTBALL  Some modifications have been made to this rule for 2012  Best way to cover is to go through the entire rule from last year’s major change and highlight changes for this year.  REMEMBER: Intent is to significantly limit blocking below the waist © 2012 TASO Football Division
