AHSAA Had No Instant Replay Challenges Reversed in Last Week’s Football Games

   MONTGOMERY – AHSAA Director of Officials Mark Jones reported that four calls on the field were challenged during the last week’s AHSAA high school football action with no calls being reversed.
   For the season, 10 challenges have been reviewed with only two being overturned, both coming in the first week’s action. DVSports Instant Replay reviews are showing a 20% rate of reversal. Instant Replay is in its second year of implementation. The NFHS has granted the AHSAA a three-year period to experiment with instant replay in regular season games.
    “East Limestone at West Limestone had one challenge on a catch in the end zone and after review, the play stood as called,” said Jones. “The Priceville-Good Hope game had one challenge on the final play of first half to determine whether the ball broke the plane of the goal line. The play stood as called.”
    Jones said there were two challenges in the Tallassee vs. Handley game.  “The first challenged whether the receiver touched a punt, and the other was on a catch/no catch situation. Both plays stood as called on the field.”
    Jones reported that 10 Instant Replay reviews this fall have consisted of the following:
4  Catch or no catch
2  Fumble or no fumble
2  Ball breaking the plan of the goal line (also reviewed whether a fumble in one challenge)
1  Illegal participation
1  Illegal forward pass
1  Touching of a punt

 

   A total of 28 schools have participated in AHSAA contests utilizing Instant Replay this season with six scheduled for this week.
