  • Interceptions may be returned.

  • Receiving

  • All players are eligible to receive passes.

  • A player must have at least one foot inbounds when making a reception.

  • Running

  • The QB cannot run with the ball.

  • Only direct handoffs behind the line of scrimmage are permitted.

  • Multiple handoffs allowed.

  • “No-running zones” are located five yards from each end zone and on either side of midfield.

  • The player who takes the handoff can throw the ball from behind the line of scrimmage.

  • Once ball is handed off, all defensive players can rush.

  • Spinning allowed, but players cannot leave feet to avoid a defensive player.

  • Ball is spotted where runner’s feet are when flag is pulled.

  • No laterals or pitches allowed.

  • Out – run straight and then turn straight towards sideline.

  • Fly – run straight forward down field.
