NFHS Rules Myth vs Fact

Myth: If the referee stops play for an injury, the correct restart is a drop ball.

Fact: The team in possession of the ball at the time play is stopped is awarded an indirect free kick if play is stopped for an injury. Only if no team has clear possession of the ball will a drop ball be the correct restart.
