Elimination of Clipping in Free-Blocking Zone Continues Risk Minimization in High School Football

from NFHS.org website

By Cody Porter on February 17, 2016

The elimination of clipping from high school football is the latest attempt to reduce the risk of injury made by the National Federation of State High School Associations (NFHS) Football Rules Committee.

The decision to eliminate clipping in the free-blocking zone (Rule 2-17-3) was the most significant of three rules changes recommended by the NFHS Football Rules Committee at its January 22-24 meeting in Indianapolis. All rules changes were subsequently approved by the NFHS Board of Directors.

“With very few major rules changes approved by the NFHS Football Rules Committee for the 2016 season, it indicates that the committee feels that the rules of the game are in pretty good shape,” said Bob Colgate, director of sports and sports medicine at the NFHS and staff liaison for football.

Clipping, as previously stated in Rule 2-17-3, was permitted in the free-blocking zone when it met three conditions; however, clipping is now illegal anywhere on the field at any time. According to the rule, the free-blocking zone is defined as a rectangular area extending laterally 4 yards either side of the spot of the snap and 3 yards behind each line of scrimmage.

“The NFHS Football Rules Committee’s action this year on making clipping illegal in the free-blocking zone once again reinforces its continued effort to minimize risk within the game,” Colgate said.

“I look forward to ongoing conversations about how best to limit exposure to harm within the free-blocking zone and in situations involving defenseless players,” said Brad Garrett, chair of the NFHS Football Rules Committee and assistant executive director of the Oregon School Activities Association.

Other changes for the 2016 season will include those made to football protective equipment and gloves in Rules 1-5-1d(5)a and 1-5-2b.

“The committee expanded the options on what can now be worn as a legal tooth and mouth protector and also football gloves,” Colgate said.

Tooth and mouth protectors that are completely clear or completely white are no longer illegal. Rule 1-5-1d(5)a continues to require that tooth and mouth protectors include an occlusal (protecting and separating the biting surfaces) portion and a labial (protecting the teeth and supporting structures) portion, and that they cover the posterior teeth with adequate thickness.

In Rule 1-5-2b, football gloves are now required to meet either the new Sports and Fitness Industry Association (SFIA) specifications or the existing National Operating Committee on Standards for Athletic Equipment (NOCSAE) test standard at the time of manufacture.

“I give my compliments to the voting members of the NFHS Football Rules Committee as they continue to put the health and safety of student-athletes at the forefront of all committee discussions regarding the future of the game,” Garrett said.

A complete listing of all rules changes will be available soon on the NFHS website at www.nfhs.org. Click on “Activities & Sports” at the top of the home page, and select “Football.”

According to the 2014-15 NFHS High School Athletics Participation Survey, football is the most popular sport for boys at the high school level with 1,083,617 participants in 11-player football. Another combined 28,938 boys participated in 6-, 8- and 9-player football. In addition, 1,698 girls participated in football during the 2014-15 season.

Still here…

WYRZlogo_Blue2

Wow…it’s been a while since I’ve posted anything here. Since, well, the end of the high school football season.

It was decided that I wasn’t going to call any basketball games this season by station management so I’ve been keeping myself busy on the air from 7:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. weekdays on 98.9 FM WYRZ and WYRZ.org just playing DJ. If you don’t live in Hendricks County or the western portion of Marion County, you can always listen via our website or via the Tunein app on your smartphone.

Sadly, I haven’t followed high school basketball this season like I have in years past since I’m not calling any of the games. I have noticed that this seems to be a very down season for the Hoosier Crossroads Conference in Boys basketball. Perennial power Hamilton Southeastern is still having, for them, a disappointing season. Brownsburg lost several key players to graduation and doesn’t seem to have the talent level to compete like they had the past couple of years. The early departure of Avon’s Brandon Peters to the University of Michigan to concentrate on playing football next season robbed the Orioles of inarguably the best basketball player they had on the team. Noblesville could be a dark horse under second year coach and former Kokomo Wildcat coach Brian McCauley. Zionsville has started off hot and it will likely come down to the Eagles and Royals as to who takes the HCC crown this season.

Since I’m not calling basketball this season, I have started to pay a little closer attention to the Pacers and Big Ten basketball. The Pacers seem to me like a team nobody will want to play yet nobody will greatly fear either due to their inconsistent play. When they are on their game, they will be very difficult for anybody to beat. The problem is that they go through stretches where they fall off the wagon it seems and have the ability to lose double digit leads in a hurry.

So I am still around and I’ll try to post a thought or two on here as time permits. Don’t forget to tune in weekday mornings from 7-10 a.m. for The Morning Drive on 98.9 FM WYRZ and at WYRZ.org and they keep it tuned in through 1:00 p.m. as I’ll be playing plenty of Solid Gold music to get you through the morning.

Noblesville Millers (3-5, 1-4) at 6A – #6 Avon Orioles (6-2, 4-1) – 6:30 p.m.

As the curtain falls on the 2015 IHSAA football regular season, the Avon Orioles still find themselves with a chance to earn back-to-back Hoosier Crossroads Conference championships. The Hamilton Southeastern Royals have already clinched at least a share of the HCC crown and can claim it outright with a win against Brownsburg and Victory Field in their season finale. However, a Brownsburg victory and an Oriole win against their final opponent of the regular season, the Noblesville Millers, the Orioles would share the conference crown with the Royals.

This scenario played out similarly last season as the Orioles, who had already been guaranteed no worse than a share of the title with Fishers, wrapped up their season with a hard fought win at Noblesville. Avon learned as they were preparing for their trip home that the Tigers had been upset by Zionsville that night and the Orioles claimed their first outright HCC title.

Tonight, Avon’s focus will be on continuing their winning streak that stretches over the last five games and preparing for their sectional opener opponent  who happens to also be the same as last season, the Brownsburg Bulldogs.

The Orioles wrap up the season at home at Hendricks Regional Health Stadium on senior night where they will honor the 34 senior players that help comprise this years Oriole football squad along with the senior managers, cheer leaders and band members before the game.

Among the seniors being honored is Avon quarterback Brandon Peters who will be continuing his football career at the University of Michigan for coach Jim Harbaugh once his Orioles playing days are over. Peters has thrown for 1,996 yards in 8 games this season leading the Orioles with 27 touchdown passes, including 4 in last weeks game against Zionsville, while throwing only 3 interceptions all season long. The Michigan recruit has averaged over 249 passing yards per game and has a completion percentage of near 63% in those 8 games. Many times, Peters passes has been directed toward long time teammate Andrew Griffin as the senior wide receiver is also expecting to play on Saturday’s for Princeton. Griffin has 840 receiving yards this season and has caught 13 touchdown passes to lead the team in that category. Senior tight end Matt Moore will make his regular season finale start for Avon having caught 7 touchdown passes this season including 3 last week against the Eagles.

Senior defensive end A.J. Elcock enters the finale leading the HCC in sacks with 10 and among the team leaders in tackles. Senior LB/SS Matt Thompson and senior LB Zach Betustak share team high honors in tackles coming in to the final game with 69 each.

The Orioles started out slow against host Zionsville last week before junior Bryant Fitzgerald’s 53 yard punt return for a touchdown in the second quarter awoke a sleepy Oriole offense that had been held scoreless in the first quarter. The Orioles scored twice more before the half on a pair of Peters to Moore touchdown passes and led Zionsville 21-7 at the half. Avon Had the ball to begin the second half and struck quickly to extend their advantage to3 touchdowns when Peters found Moore for a third time in the game. Jordan Peterson caught the last of Peters touchdown tosses on the next drive from 27 yards out and the Orioles never looked back.  Junior running back Corey DuPriest added a 73 yard scamper in the third quarter and senior running back Darian Love capped off a 60 yard drive, taking the handoff on every play, with a 20 yard scoring run. Peters finished 16-25 for 273 yards, 4 touchdowns and 1 interception.

Noblesville enters the game having lost their last three contests including last weeks 47-24 blowout courtesy of the Brownsburg Bulldogs. Brownsburg led 40-10 entering the final quarter. Millers junior quarterback McGwire Plumer, who took over the reigns ofthe Noblesville offense after senior quarterback Luke Melloh suffered a season ending knee injury in the previous weeks loss to Hamilton Southeastern, threw for 205 yards on 14-28 passing with 1 touchdown and one interception. The Millers ground attack was also stymied by the Bulldogs defense as starting tailback Jarel Youree was limited to only 38 yards on 16 carries. Defensively, the Millers gave up 517 yards to the potent Brownsburg offensive machine.

Catch all the action of Avon Oriole football tonight on Audio Sports Online beginning at 6:30 p.m. with the pregame show followed by the kickoff between the Orioles and Millers in the regular season finale at 7:00 p.m.

6A – #7 Avon Orioles (5-2, 3-1) at 5A – #14 Zionsville Eagles (3-4, 0-4) – 6:30 p.m.

The Avon Orioles make their final road trip of the regular season to take on the Zionsville Eagles before wrapping up the regular season at home next week against Noblesville. The Orioles come in to the game with the Eagles riding a four game winning streak after defeating Westfield last week 35-20.

On a chilly, windy and at times rainy night, the Orioles quickly jumped out to a 28-0 lead after the first quarter taking advantage of several Shamrock turnovers highlighted by a 72 yard interception return for a touchdown by Bryant Fitzgerald.  It would be the first of three touchdowns by Fitzgerald on the night including a 57 yard scamper in the fourth quarter to put an end to a 20-0 Westfield run that saw the Shamrocks driving late with a chance to possible tie the game. The Orioles spent much of the game keeping the ball on the ground in the windy, rainy conditions. Fitzgerald finished with 100 yards rushing. Corey DuPriest rushed for 46yards and Darian Love for 33. Senior quarterback Brandon Peters threw for 121 yards and a pair of touchdowns.

Zionsville enters the game with a streak of their own. But Pat Echeverria’s team enter the game having lost their last three contests including a 66-41 shootout at Brownsburg last week. The Eagles piled up over 300 yards of offense led by Brenden Mikesell’s 208 yards rushing and 3 touchdowns. Eagles quarterback Trevor Leichty passed for 104 yards and a pair of touchdowns. But the Eagles could not stop the Bulldogs potent offensive attack which racked up over 500 yards of offense led by running back Toks Akinribade’s 243 yards rushing and 2 rushing touchdowns. Akinribade also was on the receiving end of a Hunter Johnson touchdown pass. 1 of 5 touchdown passes Johnson recorded in the victory.

The Eagles defense has given up the most points of any team in Hoosier Crossroads Conference play while the Orioles have given up the fewest of any team in the league.

Catch all the action of Avon Orioles football tonight on Audio Sports Online. The pregame show begins at 6:30 p.m. with the Mark Bless Show then join me and my broadcast partner the Indiana Football Hall-of-Famer Dave Shelbourne for the kickoff between the Orioles and the Eagles at 7:00 p.m. from Eagles Stadium in Zionsville.

5A – #8 Westfield Shamrocks (4-2, 2-2) at 6A – #7 Avon Orioles (4-2, 2-1) – 6:30 p.m.

The Avon Orioles have gained a reputation as one of the better offensive teams in the state of Indiana. Led by a pair of college recruits in quarterback Brandon Peters and wide receiver Andrew Griffin and a slew of other talented offensive players such as Matt Moore, Corey DuPriest, Darian Love, Harrison Weber and all around player Bryant Fitzgerald, the Orioles week in and week out make the weekly highlight shows showing off their offensive prowess. But while head coach Mark Bless’ team provides plenty of sleepness night’s for opposing defensive coordinators, it’s been the Avon defense that has become an even scarier challenge for opponents to have to deal with.

Avon’s defense has allowed only 7 points over the last 10 quarters. Led by senior linebacker Matt Thompson and defensive end A.J. Elcock who share the team lead in tackles with 50 each, the Orioles swarming and aggressive defense has been giving opponents fits. Elcock is among the league leaders in sacks this season with 8 and the Orioles as a team have brought down the opposing quarterback 16 times this season. The Oriole linebacker corps led by Thompson alongside Levi Hawk, Brody Gude and Zach Betustak have also been a force in run defense limiting Whiteland and Fishers, two outstanding running offenses, rushing attack to season lows.

In last weeks game against perennial Hoosier Crossroads Conference power Fishers, the Avon defense limited the Tigers to only 23 yards on the ground and 183 yards of total offense. The defense shut down the Fishers offense while the offense took some time to get rolling before a Fitzgerald 48 yard run late in the third quarter that was followed by a 7 yard TD scamper opened the flood gates for the Oriole offense. The Orioles scored on their very next possession when Peters ran it in from 1 yard out to give Avon an 8 point lead. The Orioles added two more touchdowns in the fourth quarter as the offense clicked in to high gear enroute to a 36-14 victory of the Tigers.

The Orioles return home to Hendricks Regional Health Stadium where they will play two of their final three regular season games beginning tonight when the 7th ranked Orioles host the 8th ranked team in Class 5A Westfield Shamrocks.

Westfield began the season with four straight victories before falling to HCC leader Hamilton Southeastern at Lucas Oil Stadium 34-18. The Shamrocks returned to their brand new home last week looking for a bounce back win against visiting Brownsburg on homecoming night. The Rocks led the Bulldogs 14-7 early in the second quarter but Westfield’s defense could not stop the Bulldogs Hunter Johnson as the Tennessee recruit threw three touchdown passes in the second quarter alone and finished the game with five TD tosses for the game as the Bulldogs left with a 59-30 win. The Westfield defense also had no answer for the Bulldogs Toks Akinribade as the Iowa recruit rushed for 221 yards and 3 touchdowns.

Pepiot threw for 161 yards with no touchdowns and one interception on the night. Pepiot rushed for 72 yards as well. Senior tailback Brandon Karsnick ran for 68 yards but did score 3 touchdowns in the loss.

The Shamrocks are last in the conference in points allowed haven given up 137 points in conference play and 194 points on the season. Meanwhile, the Orioles are the tops in the conference having allowed only 105 points all season.

Avon will look to extend their winning streak to four games tonight while the Shamrocks are hoping to snap a two game losing streak.

Join me for all the action of Avon Oriole football tonight beginning at 6:30 with the pregame show featuring Avon head coach Mark Bless and then the kickoff between the Orioles and the Shamrocks at 7:00 p.m. Tunein via Audio Sports Online or XRBradio.com as the feature game of Game Night in Hendricks County.

6A – #9 Avon Orioles (3-2, 1-1) at 6A – #6 Fishers Tigers (4-1, 2-1) – 6:30 p.m.

The Avon Orioles celebrated Homecoming in dominating fashion last Friday night racing out to a 27-0 first quarter lead in an impressive win over Class 5A power Whiteland 34-0. The shutout by the Oriole defense extended their scoreless quarters streak to six consecutive while the offense took advantage of several opportunities that the Warriors presented them early in the contest.
