Week 7 Has Two Calls Reversed in 10 Challenges for Schools Using AHSAA’s DVSport Instant Replay

Current Season Reversal Percentage is 24.4%

MONTGOMERY – Five of seven AHSAA varsity high school football contests using DVSport Instant Replay last week had a season-high total of 10 challenges with two calls reversed, reports AHSAA Director of Officials Mark Jones.
   
This week, four games will be utilizing the DVSport Instant Replay with seven schools taking part for the first time this season.
    The Week 7 report had two games with no challenges. Out of ten the 10 challenges, two were reversed upon review.  Both reversals resulted in changing a completed pass to an incomplete pass.
    The reversed calls were as follow, said Jones.
Reversed plays: 

Northside at Good Hope: Good Hope challenged a completed pass for Northside on a third down and 8 yards to go play.  After review, the pass was ruled incomplete.
Russellville at Lawrence County: Visiting Russellville challenged a completed pass by Lawrence County on a third-and-10 play. After review, the pass was ruled incomplete.
   The other challenges involved fumbles, goal-line play, catch/no catch, and Arab challenged a fumble call in its contest with East Limestone challenging that the quarterback’s arm was moving forward, thus the fumble should have been ruled an incomplete pass. Upon review, however, the call stood as called on the field – a fumble.

    A total of 41 calls on the field have resulted in 10 been reversed this season, a percentage of 24.4%. The percentage is a slight decrease from 25.8% rate after week five.
   DVSport 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.
    Jones reported that the Instant Replay reviews this fall have consisted of the following:

41 reviews with 10 reversals.  24.4%

 

 

15 on catch/no catch

14 fumbles

5 breaking plane of goal line (note 2 were also fumble reviews)

1 Illegal participation

1 Illegal forward pass

2 Touching of punt

3 Forward progress

1 Penalty Enforcement Spot

1 Kick Out of Bounds
