FG Attempt Rule Clarification

Postby GNCrocks » Wed Sep 12, 2018 1:14 pm

Upon a FG Attempt that is no good:
- Miss: but crosses Goal Line Defense takes over at 20 / Touch Back
- Blocked: Defense takes over at point of recovery.
- Miss: but does not cross goal line, defense takes over where downed or crossed out of bounds like a punt.

1. Is the above correct?
2. All applies in the rare case of an attempted Drop-kick?

Miss that crosses the goal line goes to the spot of the kick if outside the 20.
Block is spot of recovery, unless block goes to the end zone then its a touchback.
Miss that doesn't go across the goal line goes to the dead ball spot.

Are you asking about the free kick? That can't be blocked.

Regarding inside the 20 = touch back. Spot of Kick or spot of snap?

HS rule I believe is line of scrimmage, NFL rule is spot of kick. They ask a lot of these questions on the rules test every year, it's amazing how many officials screw these up.

Good Stuff! Football is the one sport where the rules change a lot at each level (high school, college, professional).

Even yesterday for example, when I got back to the office where I work. They had the Badgers/BYU game on. One guy was screaming " You can't call 2 time outs in a row!"

These are all correct. From a rules point of view, a field goal is like a punt, with the exception that the kicking team can score 3.

Miss: A scrimmage kick which breaks the plane of the goal-line that does not score is always a touchback in high school (NFHS rules 6-3-1b).
Block: defense will take over where the ball becomes dead. also, if the kicking team recovers the kick behind the line of scrimmage, they may run, pass, or even kick the ball again. they still need to make the line-to-gain.


Rule 6-3 ART. 1 . . . It is a touchback if any free kick or scrimmage kick:
b. Which is a three-point field-goal attempt, in flight touches a K player in R's end zone, or after breaking the plane of R's goal line, is unsuccessful.

Perhaps this will help (kicks are probably the most complicated of rules, since they happen less frequently and there are a lot of "exceptions"):
