NFHS Rules Myth vs Fact

Myth: A player must be called for a handball even if they are reflexively trying to protect their groin, face or chest/breasts.

Fact: Any player that reflexively moves their hands to protect their groin, face or chest is NOT guilty of handling. This is a new rule change from prior seasons and reverses the prior interpretation.
