  • NFHS makes rules clarifications for 2015 season

    By Mike Aldridge, Sports writer
    The National Federation of State High School Associations (NFHS) has released its Football Rules Book and Case Book for 2015.  
    Page two of the rule book is all the further one has to look to find the changes in rules for this year.  
    The points of emphasis are on page three so it doesn’t take much looking to find what the NFHS deems to be really important this season.
    There aren’t any actual rule changes but only comments and clarifications on current rules.
