Cowbells

What is the rule about cowbells in the stands for high school football or is there a rule. Does anyone have a rule book or case book pager?

The artificial noisemaker rule that exists in NFHS basketball does not exist in football.

We all need more cowbell.

I have a fever, and the only prescription, is more cowbell!

Edit: I just checked on Wikipedia, I can't believe that sketch is 10 years old.

Thanks, someone posed the question of the legality of cowbells and I wanted to make sure I had it right before I responded back to them...I have never really had a issie with them in one of our games.

Not cowbells but Ohio playoffs have this rule.

3.4 Air Horns/Noisemaker Prohibited
Air horns are not permitted in the stadium. Noisemakers that require electric or power of other sorts are prohibited

Reminds me of my dear, departed mother, who would show up for each of my peewee games and root for my (terrible) team with a vigorous cowbell. I've got to think she was unpopular with the other parents.

+1 Love it! That's good stuff.

Every time I hear Don't Fear the Reaper, I can't help but think of that skit and Will Ferrell going to town on the cow bell.

Did a Friday night game in Michigan recently, a bunch of the kids in the home stands had vuvuzela's. You never heard such a racket. I was LJ and it drove me nuts. The Home coach too. After once again failing to yell in a play change to his Defensive captain, he asked about shutting them up. I wasn't sure whether he was talking to me or his assistant coach. I simply pointed out that it was his fans making the noise, and suggested he talk to his A.D.
