Sit in the stands at a high school football game, and you're likely to hear some interesting rule interpretations from the fans.
- "No way that's interference. The pass was uncatchable!"
- "Whatta you mean it's a touchback? There was no one within 20 yards of him. Let him run it [the kick] out!"
- "That's OK, he can hit the receiver as much as he wants, as long as it's within 5 yards of the line."
Those are just a sampling of comments that reflect some basic misunderstandings about the rules that apply to a Friday night high school game as opposed to the pros on Sunday. Log in for Part I as contibuting writer Kent Holm takes a look at "uncatchable passes" and some "other things" for officials to consider.
