NFHS - 2019 RULE CHANGES

 

NFHS Makes Signifigant Football Rule Changes for 2019......

40 Second Play Clock - Post-Season Instant Replay 

40-SECOND PLAY CLOCK [2-35-1, 3-6-1, 3-6-2a, 7-2-1] 


Rationale: To have a more consistent time period between downs, the rules committee approved situations where 40 seconds will be placed on the play clock.

 

The new rule defines when 40 seconds will be placed on the play clock and when 25 seconds will be placed on the play clock.

                 --------------------

By State Association Adoption,

Use of Video Review Allowed for Post-Season


Rationale: By state association adoption, instant replay may only be used during state postseason contests to review decisions by the on-field game officials. This adoption would allow state associations to develop protocols for use of video replay.
