NFHS Rules Myth vs Fact

Myth: It is a foul throw-in if one or both of a player's feet are touching the sideline but extend over the touchline onto the field at the time the ball is released.

Fact: So long as both of the player's feet are at least touching the sideline, the throw-in is legal even if the player's foot/feet extend onto the field.
