One Call Reversed in During Week 2 Contests Using DVSport Instant Replay

MONTGOMERY – Three calls were challenged with one call being reversed during last week’s prep football games utilizing DVSport Instant Replay, said AHSAA Director of Officials Mark Jones. For the season, 13 challenges have been issued with three calls on the field overturned after video evaluation.
    The 23.1% reversal rate is up slightly from the 20% after the first two weeks. 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.
   “Lawrence County High School challenged the call of a fumble during the second quarter of its game with Hayden. Upon review, video showed the runner was down prior to losing control of the ball and the call was reversed,” Jones said.
    Baker High School challenged a touchdown call saying ball was fumbled prior to breaking the plane of the goal line.  Video showed the touchdown resulted prior to the fumble and stood as called on the field. And at the East Limestone-Madison Academy contest, East Limestone challenged the call of a fumble on a kickoff.  Video clearly showed the fumble, and the call stood as called on the field.
    Jones reported that 13 Instant Replay reviews this fall have consisted of the following:
TYPES OF CHALLENGES
4  Catch or no catch
5  Fumble or no fumble
3  Ball breaking the plan of the goal line
(Note: also had 2 fumbles reviewed at same time)
1  Illegal participation
1  Illegal forward pass
1  Touching of a punt
