9-1-6 Blocking Below The Waist

  • Team A prior to a change of team possession: Consider a low-blocking zone seven yards on each side of the ball extending five yards beyond the neutral zone and back to Team A’s end line. (Rule 2-3-7 and Appendix D)
    • The following Team A players may legally block below the waist inside this zone until the ball has left the zone: (a) players on the line of scrimmage completely within this zone and (b) stationary backs who are at least partially inside the tackle box and at least partially inside the frame of the body of the second lineman from the snapper.
    • Players not covered in paragraph 1 (above) while the ball is still in the zone, and ALLplayers after the ball has left the zone, are allowed to block below the waist only if the force of the initial contact is from the front, but they may not block below the waist if the force of the initial contact is from the side or back. “From the front” is understood to mean within the clock-face region between “10 o’clock and 2 o’clock” forward of the player being blocked.
    • Once the ball has left the zone a player may not block below the waist toward his own end line.

9-1-6 Blocking Below The Waist

  • Team B prior to a change of team possession
    • Other than in paragraphs 2 and 3 below, Team B players may block below the waist only within the area defined by lines parallel to the goal line five yards beyond and behind the neutral zone extended to the sidelines. Blocking below the waist by players of Team B outside this area is illegal.
    • Team B players may not block below the waist against an opponent who is in position to receive a backward pass.
    • Team B players may not block below the waist against an eligible Team A pass receiver beyond the neutral zone unless attempting to get to the ball or ball carrier. This prohibition ends when a legal forward pass is no longer possible by rule.
