The penalty is a 5-Yard " Delay of Game " penalty
Yes there is a rule that was put in place to keep players from hurdling one another. This is meant to prevent injuries which could occur while a player is hit in mid air here...
Yes it is. Hurdling is an attempt by a player to jump(hurdle) with one or both feet or knees foremost over an opponent who is contacting the ground with no part of his body except one or both feet.
They can decline the penalty, yes... but there would be no reason to decline it, because in high school this is a dead ball foul and the play is immediately blown dead.
Yes. Play is stopped the moment the defender crosses into the neutral zone. Technically, this is called "encroachment." There is no "offsides" foul in high school football.
Well for the first offense there is no penalty. It is just a warning. If their is a second infraction after the warning, that is when the team gets penalized....
OPI is a 15yd penalty, against team A. It is penalized 15 yds from the previous spot, and a loss of down.
no, there is no penalty in the rulebook.
No. An illegal formation penalty does not stop play. The play is only negated if the defense accepts the penalty after the play is over.
A holding penalty is called when a player either grabs the jersey or any ither equipement of the adversary and manipulates him by trying to do unwilling movememtns such as bringing the guy down or just pulling him back. It is a medium-caused penalty in football.
No...a high school football is smaller than a college football
