6Game Rules- Game Play A play is ruled “dead” if (player w/ ball): A players flag is pulledIf a player runs out of boundsIf a player drops a pass/fumbles while runningIf a player falls on the ground.A throw off may be used on the fourth down. It must be declared and there can be no fakes.
7Defense and Interceptions On defense players should play man to man (pick a person and guard them).If you plan to rush the QB, defense must count to 5 Mississippi before doing so.If the defense rushes, the QB can then run. If they don’t rush, the QB can not run.An intercepted play can be ran back. It is not considered a down at the spot of interception.An intercepted extra point attempt may not be run back.
8What is Off-Sides?Line of scrimmage- this is where the football is placed to be hiked. All offensive players must be behind this line before this ball is hiked.IF YOU ARE NOT BEHIND THE LINE OF SCRIMMAGE BEFORE THE HIKE, YOU ARE OFF-SIDES.Off-sides results in a 5 yard penalty.The blue line in the picture below is an example.DefenseOffenseLine of Scrimmage
9A Touchdown A touchdown is worth 6 points Once a team has scored a touchdown, they have the choice of going for an extra point.There are 2 cones that mark the extra point line of scrimmageAfter the play is completely over, the defensive team will have to quickly hustle down field for the throw off.Throw off team count to 5 and then throw.If the receiving team is not ready, you do not have to wait on them
10Fair Play- ImportantNo Flag guarding- you can not use your hands to knock away others handsNo stiff armingDo not tie your flagIf you fall on the ground, you are automatically down and the play is overIf your flag falls off when you are carrying the ball, you are down in that spot.If you catch a ball and you don’t have a flag on, it is an incomplete pass and the ball goes back to the original line of scrimmage
