2-9-1 Diagram

2-9-1 The prohibition against contacting a player who has given a valid fair catch signal ceases if the kick is muffed. When No. 80 catches the ball in (D), it is a fair catch. The contact in (C) is ignored unless unnecessarily rough or flagrant. The captain may choose to snap or free kick anywhere between the hash marks on the yard line through the spot of the catch.
