This is the first time the word "person" appears in Rule 7, Section 1, Article 1. There is no mention of this change in the Basketball Rule Changes or Editorial Changes section of the Rule Book. Again, it appears to be one of those famous "unannounced" NFHS changes.

Can't something be done about these NFHS "unannounced" changes to the rules or casebook interpretations?
Good work, sir. Yes, it is an unannounced wording change to make the rule match the casebook. MS is responsible for the editorial changes. You should contact her with your concerns.
