Best Answer

In high school there are no special rules concerning a forward fumble, so yes, the fumbling team can recover it for a touchdown. However, if the officials determine that a ball was deliberately fumbled forward to try and gain yardage, they can rule it as an incomplete pass.

If the ball is intercepted on an extra point can you score a touchdown?

You cannot score a touchdown if you intercept an extra point. If you return it for a touchdown (all the way to the other team's end zone) you get two points. This is only for college level football. Professional football and High School football immediately blows the whistle and the play is dead when an extra point kick attempt is blocked.

What are the high school football rules for overtime California?

California high school football follows an overtime structure similar to that of college football, meaning that in a given overtime period each team's offense is given the ball at the opponents 25-yard line. According to California Interscholastic Federation rules, "If a second overtime period is needed, a 2 point conversion must be attempted by the team scoring a touchdown." Thus, in order for this contest to stretch to three overtimes, the teams not only had to match each other touchdown for touchdown, but conversion for conversion.
