THE NFHS 2/5/21 release explaining the revision to 2-17-2c (Blocking below the waist in the FBZ) clearly indicates, "that the block must be an immediate action following the snap" (removing any reference to the block being delayed as long as, "the ball must be in the zone".

It further suggests, "This change lets game officials observe the blocks and make a call without having to determine where the ball is and what formation the offense lined up in."

It simplifies and standardizes the requirements for "Blocking below the waist in the FBZ".
