Modified Mini Conference Rules

 

  1. Weight limit is still 75lbs.

  2. Field dimensions are 60 yards long and 35.5 yards wide

  3. PENALITES: Will be assessed as follows:

    1. 5-YARD PENALTIES: Will be assessed three-yards

    2. 10-YARD PENAILITES: Will be assessed six-yards

    3. 15-YARD PENALTIES: Will be assessed ten-yards

    4. PERSONAL FOUL AND UNSPORTSMANLIKE CONDUCT: Will remain 15-yards

  4. Punts are 20 yards

  5. There are nine players on the field, on both sides of the ball

  6. OFFENSE: Will have five players on the line of scrimmage and four players in the backfield

  7. There will be no unbalanced lines on the offensive line of scrimmage

  8. DEFENSE: Will have four players on the line of scrimmage and five players in the backfield

  9. All players in the defensive backfield will line up 4 yards off the ball at the offensive snap

    1. EXCEPTION: If the offense lines up with an empty backfield and two or three receivers split to one side of the formation, the defensive players covering those split receivers may line up behind the heels of the interior defensive linemen instead of four-yards off the ball.

  10. When the offense has the ball, inside the defense’s 10-yard line, the defensive backfield can line up on the heels of the defensive linemen. There will be no blitzing in the guard/center gap and no player over the center at the snap of the ball.

  11. Play count will remain the same: >20 players requires 8 play minimum per player; 20 or less players will require 10 plays per player minimum.

  12. Fumbled snaps on the quarterback/center exchange can’t result in positive yards for the offense. If the offense recovers, the ball is moved to the previous line of scrimmage and the down counts. If the quarterback recovers the ball, the play is dead and any contact on the quarterback will be deemed as unnecessary roughness and the defense will be assessed the penalty per OHSAA rules.

  13. Any fumble in the backfield can be picked up by a player lined up in the backfield at their own risk. Any fumble by the player picking up the fumble would be a live ball and subject to loss of possession.

  14. THERE WILL BE NO CONTACT ON THE OFFENSIVE CENTER INITIATED BY A DEFENSIVE PLAYER AT THE SNAP OF THE BALL.
