Anecdotal Evidence ...

That makes me want to say that the rule was adopted for the 1994-95 season.
Nice job Sherlock.

Caseplay 3.5.B is not highlighted in gray in the 1996-97 NFHS Casebook, nor does it appear in Part One of said Casebook, so the interpretation must have been made before 1996-97.

I'm going to go along with your Mark Jr. anecdote, and say the interpretation was implemented in 1994-95.

Thanks Mark T. DeNucci, Sr.

Karl Malone (Louisiana Tech 1982-1985, NBA 1985-2004), and Hakeem Olajuwon (Houston 1981-1984, NBA 1984-2002), both endorsed LA Gear basketball shoes. In 1993, they both wore LA Gear shoes with flashing lights in NBA games, and the NBA promptly banned shoes with flashing lights. The NFHS banned such shoes in 1994-95.
