Significant rule changes Next » 1 of 17 « Prev
Perhaps the most noteworthy rule change this season reduces the penalty for pass interference. The 15-yard penalty remains for both offensive and defensive interference, but the automatic first down has been eliminated for defensive P.I. and the loss of down has been removed for offensive pass interference.

Thus, an automatic first down in prep football is awarded only when there’s roughing (1) the kicker or holder, (2) the passer or (3) the snapper. A team looses a down only by (1) an illegal forward pass (including grounding), (2) illegal touching of a pass by an ineligible player or (3) illegally handing the ball forward.

Other rule changes are treated later on.
