TIMER’S DUTIES  2-12-5: The intent of the rule change is to avoid gamesmanship and ensure the time for replacement remains within the rules.  This rule change makes 2-12-5 consistent with 2-12-4 “second horn” requirement.

FORFEITURE, PROTEST, INTERRUUPTED GAME 5-4-1, 2:  When a coach has been removed, this rule clarifies that if no other coach or school personnel are available, then the game is forfeited unless state association rules determine otherwise.  

HEAD COACH’S RULE  10-6-Penalty: To clarify that officials are not required to issue a warning prior to issuing a technical foul. However, they may issue a warning when the offense is judged not to be major.
