A special marker, or the referee, will designate 7 yards from the line of scrimmage.

f. In order to be called a sack the quarterback must have the ball in his hand. All TIES will go to the quarterback, this will be a judgment call.

g. In the event of a hurry offense the rusher may rush from anywhere the 7 yard referee is located. The rusher must be behind the 7 yard referee at all times. If the rusher is off sides this will result in a 5 yard penalty and a 1st down.

f. Spinning is allowed but players cannot leave their feet to avoid a defensive player.
