  1. AHSAA Football Mechanics Basic Mechanics, Keys and Responsibilities for a Crew of 7 2011 Football Season

  2. Why use seven officials? • Why not just adopt the college 7-man mechanics? The speed of the game is different and AHSAA wanted consistency between AHSAA 5-man and 7-man mechanics. • A crew of 7 will provide more consistent, area coverage resulting in: • Better detection and enforcement of rules which are designed to protect safety of players • Better detection of rules infractions which would otherwise give one team an unfair advantage • Better side line control • Preventive officiating is improved • Dead ball and back side officiating is improved Alabama High School Athletic Association
