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.
