Lanston Wertz Jr., from the Charlotte Observer, says the high school football Overtime rule of 4 downs from the 10-yard line, for both teams, is WAY too short and they ought to go with the college rule of 4 downs from the 25-yard line and what do you think??? Here is the good word from Mr. Wertz and when you stop and think about it, it does seem to be WAY too short….In college after a certain number of tries you have to go for two when you score and that also makes sense…..
Langston Wertz Jr. from the Charlotte Observer:
I really don’t like the high school overtime rule. Teams, alternating possessions, get the ball at the 10-yard line with four downs. You keep playing until one team wins.
Ten yards is just too short, and it leads to coaches – more often than not – deciding to not play for OT.
