A big DFOA thank you goes out to Sean Burrow for coordinating and teaching an NCAA introductory rules class to more than 30 DFOA members. This three hour session covered the major rules differences between NFHS and NCAA while also giving an overview of 7-man mechanics. This is the first time DFOA has hosted an NCAA rules session and it was well received by our membership that attended. Instructors (all DFOA Alumni) included several NCAA officials from D1 and D2 programs including:
- Sean Burrow
- Danny Hoeft
- Matt Burkes
- Corey Fobes
The follow-up material from the class can be found here:
DOWNLOAD MATERIALS – Zip file includes several documents – major 2018 NFHS / NCAA Rule Differences, BBW Diagram, 2018 NCAA Rule Book, Philosophies, Sample NCAA Foul Report.
