3-4-1a Diagram

3-4-1a During a kickoff or any other free kick (PlayPic A), the clock will not be started until the ball is touched, other than first touching by K. When K touches the ball beyond the neutral zone, as in PlayPic B, the clock is started (PlayPic C). When K secures possession, the ball becomes dead and the clock is stopped. K may not advance the ball. The recovery by K results in a first down for K.
