Can a blocked extra point try be recovered by the kicking team for a 2 point conversion?

In high school, the moment the ball is kicked on a try, the play is dead. In NCAA, if the ball touches the endzone or a player in the endzone, it is a touchback. In all other levels and situations, it works identical to a field goal or punt. It is called a 'scrimmage kick', and if the ball is blocked from behind the line of scrimmage, and offensive player may take possession and run in for a 2-pt conversion. If the kick sails beyond the line of scrimmage, the defense (or 'receiving team', since the kick obviously doesn't make it through the back of the endzone) has to touch the ball. However, attempted blocks near the line of scrimmage are ignored when considering touching by the defense. For more info: if the kicking team touches the ball after the try doesn't make it, it is like when a punt is touched by the kicking team. Regardless of what happens after the touch, the receiving team has the option to take possession at the 'first touching' spot (this is why punt units fully 'possess' the football instead of touching it).

What if football is intercepted during extra point can it be returned for td?

A football cannot be intercepted on an extra point. As the extra point is kicked, not thrown. As far as two point conversions are concerned, if an interception is caught, it can be returned for two points, not a touchdown.

Yes, but only if the ball doesn't cross the line of scrimmage. Once it does, the kicking team can still recover the ball but can't advance it.

Is it true that a player can try a drop-kick for a field goal at any time while the ball is live?

I don't believe you have to be behind the line of scrimmage. This play is a holdover from rugby where a player can attempt a drop goal at any time during play. A player, often during a full sprint, will drop the ball in front of him and as it touches the ground will kick it through the uprights for three points. Doug Flutie used this technique to score the extra point in the last play of his career. Jim McMahon, the noted Chicago Bears quarterback, used to challenge kickers to drop goal contests. Rumor has it that they soon learned that that was a good way to lose money. * As long as you're behind the line of scrimmage and the ball hits the ground before you kick it. New Answer: No the ball must be kicked from the groung Not in American football, no. All kicks must be taken from behind the line of scrimmage. Drop kicks are still perfectly legal. They're just not attempted very often anymore, mostly because the shape of the football changed to accommodate forward passes. It used to be rounder like a rugby ball and give a more reliable bounce when it hit the ground. Canadian football still allows a team to kick and recover from beyond the line of scrimmage. Any player from the kicking team can recover the ball, as long as he was level with or behind the kicker at the time of the kick. I suppose this rule would allow for a dropkick to be taken from anywhere on the field, but it's usually used at the end of tie games to punt deep and force the other team to give up a 1-point rouge.
