Wrong mechanic. I prefer to sit in the bleachers behind the basket with a hot mom, especially if she has some popcorn. Let the players take care of the ball between free throws. By the time these players get to high school, they know what to do with the ball.

There is an emphasis here in FL on mechanics. The signals are to be the proper NFHS signals. Pointing direction with the whole hand, not a finger or two. 60 second time out is not the rewind of the Wicked Witch of the East leg roll. That sort of thing where officials who do both college & HS have used college mechanics in HS games.
