Rule Clarification –
The Washington Officials Association (WOA) at the state level was asked for a specific rule clarification pertaining to so-called “chucking” or “bump and run” coverage by Team B defenders.
The answer from the WOA Football Committee is “No bump and run coverage nor is there chucking within 5 yards in high school football.”
Moreover, the WOA will address this topic at the August WOA Conference in Yakima, in the 2017 state test, and in 2017 training video.
The following rules were noted in the communication with the WOA: 9.2.3 c&d, 9.2.3 Situation A (Case) and 7.5.10
