AOS Plays of the Week – 9/5/18
Play 1: It is third and 3 on A’s 30 and Al is downed short of the line to gain on his 28. Specialized kicker A12 enters the field to replace A when the whistle is sounded, but prior to the referee signaling a time-out, because he had detected holding by Bl. The captain of A accepts the penalty which results in a first and 10 for A from its 38. Realizing the change of status: (a) A12 returns to his team box and is replaced by A3; or (b) A4 requests and is granted a charged time-out during which A12 returns to the team box.
Play 2: Following a third-down play, the game officials do not measure as the referee the line to gain clearly has not been reached. Al lines up in punt formation. Just before assuming his set position, the captain of A requests a measurement.
Play 3: At the snap, A1 is in a position which is neither on the line of scrimmage nor clearly in the backfield. A1 is not on the line because neither his head nor his foot is breaking the plane through the waist of the snapper, and he is not a back because he is penetrating the plane through the waist of his nearest teammate, end A2, who is on the line. The position of Al is inside that of end A2, who is clearly on the line of scrimmage. When the ball is snapped, both Al and A2 go downfield and Al catches a pass.
