New Penalty Enforcement Chart – The NFHS Rules Committee has finally eliminated the 20-yard offensive holding foul on running plays.  Many coaches, fans and officials felt it was unfair to enforce the holding penalty from well-behind the line of scrimmage when the holding occurred in the backfield.  A number of scenarios had to be addressed by the committee including fouls by the defense.  For college officials, I think you will find these changes consistent with the enforcement rules at the NCAA level.  Several fouls are exempt from these new enforcements including: Illegal batting, illegal kicking, illegal participation (9-6-4a and g), and illegal forward passes are still enforced as a spot foul.  There is no change to fouls by the offense in the endzone resulting in a safety.
