WEST VIRGINIA MECHANICS – 2018

These pages dictate the commonalities with the NFHS Football Officials Manual and some add-ons that make the mechanics more efficient. We need greater consistency across the State. Work at it.

PRE-GAME MEETING WITH COACHES AND THE COIN TOSS:

The Coaches Pre-game meetings shall occur between 1 1/2 to 1 1/4 hours prior to the kickoff in or near a team locker room. The coin toss shall be conducted 3 minutes prior to the scheduled kickoff in the center of the field. Only 4 captains from each team shall be on the field. All other team members shall be off the field of play. Any request to send other players on the field shall be denied. Sportsmanship shall be addressed with the captains at this time. The LJ and BJ shall be at their respective hashes with a ball from the team on their side of the field. For 2nd half, take captains out for options (same as prior to 2014).

KICKOFF (5-man):

The Referee shall take a position near the hash mark opposite the press box. Depth will vary with the ability of the kickers. Check K’s formation.

The Line Judge shall assist in counting the kicking team.

If a kickoff goes out of bounds and has been touched by the receivers, the covering official shall

go to the spot, no need in using a bean bag.

SCRIMMAGE DOWN:

The wings will give a hand signal for wide-outs either on the line or off the line.

The covering official on out of bounds plays will hold the out-of-bounds spot and continue to

observe action from that vantage point. Wings must be aware to assist Umpires with ineligibles

downfield.

The chain clip shall be placed in the middle of the yard line closest to the back stake.

NEW: 3rd or 4th and short line to gain wings be alert of line-to-gain.

6-man: Deep Judges, work inside out, maintain 17-yard spacing between you.

Types of formations will determine how the referee will give the ready-for-play and take his position to cover the play.

a. If the offense has a normal huddle the referee should always be near the line of scrimmage

to help with ball exchanges. Be sure your Back Judge and Timer can see you give the ready signal and always face the line of scrimmage.

b. If the offense is a no-huddle set, the Referee may drop back 10-12 yards to give the ready signal. Always face the line of scrimmage.

SHORT FREE KICK MECHANICS (5-man): For an expected Short Free Kick:

BJ and LJ on K’s free kick line —— L and U on R’s Restraining Line

Kick comes to BJ/L side of the field, focus on touching of the ball by R players and First Touching by K players. LJ/U key on blocking by K players and the ball traveling 10 yards.

Kick comes to LJ/U side of the field, focus on touching of the ball by R players and First Touching by K players. BJ/L key on blocking by K players and the ball traveling 10 yards.

For an unexpected Short Free Kick:
BJ-Team K’s Free Kick Line — LJ- Team R’s Free Kick Line, others in normal free kick positions. Kick comes to BJ side of the field, BJ takes touching of the ball by R players and First Touching by K

players. LJ keys on blocking by K players and on the ball traveling 10 yards.
Kick comes to LJ side of the field, LJ takes touching of the ball by R players and First Touching by K

players. BJ keys on blocking by K players and on the ball traveling 10 yards.

PUNT COVERAGE DOWN FIELD (5-man)

The Back Judge will cover his 2/3 of the field favoring the Line Judge’s side. If the Back Judge starts out behind the deepest receiver he must move forward to view the catch/no catch or muff.

The Linesman will leave when he is sure ball will be kicked and cover his 1/3 of the field. One official has the ball the other is observing action in front of and around the receiver/runner.

TRY BY KICK OR FIELD GOAL ATTEMPT (5-Man):

Move the Wing the holder is facing back under the uprights with the Back Judge.

Umpires must move up to the goal line if a kick-try breaks down but do not obstruct the view of the wing who is on the goal line.

Referee shall look into the holder’s face, and be at least 10 yards wide and 3 yards deeper than kicker.

The Line Judge will not leave the line-of-scrimmage until the kick has crossed the line. If the punt is short, the Back Judge may get help from the Line Judge.

Official’s uniforms shall follow the WVSSAC Officials’ Handbook regulations. Blue bean bags and if necessary white bean bags for a PSK spot or aiding the down-marker in 1st and goal situations. Predominately black shoes with black laces and some white accents. If an official wears a towel it must be black with the black pants.

TIMING INTERVALS AND INTERMISSION:

a. All intermissions are to be timed by the Back Judge (and perhaps the Referee).
b. Put 3 minutes on the clock for the mandatory warm-up period after the halftime intermission expires.

INITIAL COVERAGE OF ELIGIBLES:

Follow the mechanics illustrated in the most recent Official’s Manual.

PSK shall not be used in overtime periods.

There are to be no overtime periods for JV football.

6-MAN MECHANICS:

Field Judge and Back Judge work inside out. Maintain a 17-20 yard horizontal spacing when taking pre- snap positions.

In 6-man, deep judges have outside eligibles. With trips, take two outside eligibles. Start no wider than the 9-yard marks (top of the numbers).

BRAND NEW: See Game Shortening Rule in Bulletin. Umpire shall raise his hand when the ball becomes dead following a scrimmage down (this starts the referee’s 12-15 second count). If there is only one flag, that official shall give the preliminary signal and report foul to the referee. If there are two flags, referee will get call and give preliminary/s signals.

Misc. Referees may operate either on the wide side of the formation or on the passing arm/kicking leg side for scrimmage downs (other than kick tries).
