Title: 2004 Post Scrimmage Kick Enforcement Revisited


1
2004 Post Scrimmage Kick Enforcement - Revisited
2
Background of Post Scrimmage Kick Rule (PSK)
  • Was on rules committee agenda 10 times between
    1991 and adoption in 2003
  • Original proposals were copies of NCAA rule,
    creating multiple exceptions in NFHS code
  • Team A/K has chosen to end its possession by
    kicking, and then kicks the ball
  • Proposal as passed DID NOT modify other rules
    such as inadvertent whistle and definition of
    kicks

3
Background of Post Scrimmage Kick Rule (PSK)
  • Necessarily different than collegiate rule in
    order to minimize and eliminate exceptions to
    NFHS penalty code
  • May continue to require further refinement in
    future, but for now, leaves unchanged most other
    related provisions
  • Statistics show that high school punters are
    happy with more than 3 seconds hang time. PSK
    fouls dont happen that often! And is even less
    likely in non varsity games.

4
PSK Basic Rule Provisions
  • Defines a PSK Spot (additional Basic Spot defined
    in rule 10-4-3 and definition included in 2-40-6)
  • PSK spot is where kick ends by rule when all
    conditions for PSK are met (2-40-6).
  • Altered in a minor way, other related definitions
    related to spots (inserting other than
    language, etc.)

5
PSK Basic Rule Provisions
  • Must use the window to properly apply the rule.
  • The window is opened (maintained) when the ball
    is snapped if a kick is then made, AND
  • K kicks the ball and the kick crosses the
    expanded neutral zone, AND
  • R has yet to possess the ball and the kick has
    not ended by rule

6
PSK Basic Rule
  • A PSK foul occurs when R fouls with the window
    open AND R fouls on Rs side of the expanded
    neutral zone, AND if R has the ball at the end of
    the down (or will next put the ball in play)
  • PSK Never Applies on Try (by rule)
  • PSK Never Applies on a K foul
  • PSK Never Applies on Made FG (R does not have
    ball)
  • PSK MAY apply on missed FG (must be aware of NFHS
    rule on missed FG compared to collegiate rule as
    ball could roll dead in field of play)

7
PSK Rules Study Tips
  • PSK MAY apply on a scrimmage kick (punt)
  • PSK MAY apply in Overtime (determined by state
    overtime procedure), but does not apply if using
    NFHS 10 yard procedure
  • When a PSK foul occurs, the basic spot is the end
    of the kick (correctly marked by bean bag)
  • Penalties behind basic spot are enforced using
    all-but-one principle.
  • All other revisions and provisions are consistent
    with all-but-one as in place at this time.

8
PSK Rules Study Tips for the Play
  • Did the window open (kick was made and crossed
    the ENZ)
  • Did the window close (kick end by rule)
  • Did R End up with the ball after the defined end
    of a kick? (or will R put ball in play next?)
  • Did R Foul?
  • Did Rs foul occur with window open, past ENZ,
    and before window closed?
  • If all answers are YES, PSK enforcement applies.

9
PSK Officiating Mechanics Tips
  • BJ (LJ on 4 person Crew) should carry two bean
    bags. One for PSK spot, one in case of fumble.
  • Rule 2 Definitions will help sort out most any
    PSK foul that happens to occur. Case books plays
    on substitution/participation fouls MUST be
    reviewed as spot of foul is critical.
  • Movement of LJ may need to be addressed. It may
    not be as easy for the LJ to break on the snap as
    a few states still do in 5 person, but rather,
    he/she may have to wait to release until kick is
    imminent. Primary coverage as to the ball having
    crossed the ENZ has to be L.
  • Covering official must bean bag PSK spot (not
    always BJ or LJ).

10
PSK Play Situations
  • Ball crosses ENZ and returns behind
  • Still meets rule as it did cross
  • Inadvertent whistle during Kick
  • No option but previous spot by rule (not PSK as R
    doesnt have ball)
  • Foul after inadvertent, no foul enforcement
    unless Unsporting or Live Ball Enforced as Dead
  • Foul before inadvertent, enforce yardage from
    previous spot.
  • K Foul, then kick, PSK foul, then R fields ball
    and advances. During run, R fouls again.
  • R may keep ball as they received ball with clean
    hands. They must decline Ks foul. The most
    disadvantageous R foul will be enforced.
