2016 NFHS Rule Change

https://www.nfhs.org/articles/elimin...hool-football/

The elimination of clipping from high school football is the latest attempt to reduce the risk of injury made by the National Federation of State High School Associations (NFHS) Football Rules Committee.

The decision to eliminate clipping in the free-blocking zone (Rule 2-17-3) was the most significant of three rules changes recommended by the NFHS Football Rules Committee at its January 22-24 meeting in Indianapolis. All rules changes were subsequently approved by the NFHS Board of Directors

Mouth guards can now be white or clear.

Something to do with gloves.

Yawn.

Wow, that seemed like a waste of time.

Peace

Actually, I like it that in the end they made minor changes only vs feeling they had to do something just for the sake of doing something silly, like switching the LJ and LM at halftime or some other fashion police thing.

Thanks. I update the post with the correct link.

Also here is a PDF of the changes:

Looking over the editorial changes, it looks like they're going to (hopefully) clear up the change from last year.

5-1-1(b)

Quote:
ART. 1 . . . The team which next puts the ball in play by scrimmage following a free kick, touchback or fair catch is awarded a series of four consecutively numbered downs in which to advance the ball to the line to gain.

a. Each awarded first down starts a new series of four consecutively numbered downs.

b. The referee shall have the authority to correct the number of the next down prior to the ball becoming live after a new series of downs is awarded.

This may be the first year in a long time that I skip buying the Redding's Guide. This won't be worth dropping $25 on.

Was this clipping such a problem that the rule had to be changed to eliminate it? I honestly cannot think of a single game this last year where I saw clipping in the FBZ.

I haven't bothered in several years. It was a good guide when I was getting started but just haven't seen the need since then. Did you see enough value in buying it every year for the rule changes?

rocky, I may have seen it once last year but it is not something you see very often.

Actually most of the time I did. Mostly is because Reddings is usually available a couple of months before we get our NFHS packet from Chapel Hill. George D's insight into rule changes prepared me for our group's discussions when we started having meetings in July. When the Fed comes out with one of those changes that has faulty or convoluted language, I think he does a good job of getting to the bottom of what was meant where the Fed can't or doesn't.

I contacted Double S several years ago and asked if they would consider a digital format but their reply indicated they weren't planning on it.

Over the years, I've found the format, The Reddings Guide uses, of combining a rule, and immediately following it with Case Book type scenarios and specific examples is a much more effective way of presenting a more thorough explanation, not only of the letter of the rule, but it's meaning and intention.

You guys know Redding doesn't publish that anymore, right? I mean, it is available, just that he has little to nothing to do with it.

I really hate how some NCAA guys actually think the guide's discussion is like an approved ruling.

I've also heard of a new mechanics change. The HL and LJ will switch at halftime.
