Touchback Rule

Postby coachsatcher » Sat Oct 18, 2014 9:25 pm

I know this was an issue last year, but it's still not resolved. On a kickoff, if the ball goes into the end zone; does the ball get spotted at the 20 or the 25? I questioned it last night and the officials originally said the rules say the 25, but came to me before the first kickoff and said they were told by their Chapter it supposed to be the 20 in 6-man football. It's been different at every single game this season; so I'm curious what the real rule is?

It's not just the 'younger guys' cowman. I'm a lowly rookie and have had to correct the 'old guys' mistakes when they come from 11-man to -6-man. Worked with a Division 1 this past week who hadn't called a 6-man game in 10 years.

And he'll probably get a playoff game.
