  • New high school football rules...

    High school football players must sit out one play next year if their helmet comes off while the ball is live.
    In cases where the helmet comes completely off without it being directly attributable to a foul by the opponent, the player will have to leave the game for at least one down.
    This addition to Rule 3-5-10 was one of eight rules changes approved by the National Federation of State High School Associations (NFHS) Football Rules Committee at its January meeting in Indianapolis. All rules changes were subsequently approved by the NFHS Board of Directors.
