K free kicks from his 40 and commits first touching at the 48. K recovers at R's 45 and R is flagged for grabbing the face mask. What is the ruling? According to the NFHS rule book, "the right of R to take the ball at the spot of first touching is cancelled if . . . any foul is committed during the down. Please use NFHS rules for the answer.

When did the foul occur..? If the facemask occurs after the recovery, it is a dead ball foul, since the ball is dead as soon as K recovers... R's ball, first and 10 at the 40/30... (Depending on 5 or 15 yards...)

If the foul occurs before the recovery by K, enforce the penalty from the previous spot and rekick...

In your situation it appears that R never touched the kick. The first touching by K means that they will not get the ball at the end of the play. K will rekick after the penalty enforcement or if the penalty is declined B's ball at the spot of first touching.

6-1-6 If any kicker touches a free kick before it crosses R s free-kick line and before it is touched there by any R player, it is referred to as first touching of the kick. R may take the ball at the spot of first touching, or any spot if there is more than one spot of first touching, or they may choose to have the ball put in play as determined by the action which follows first touching. Such touching is ignored if it is caused by R pushing or blocking K into contact with the ball. The right of R to take the ball at the spot of first touching by K is canceled if R touches the kick and thereafter during the down commits a foul or if the penalty is accepted for any foul committed during the down.
