August 13, 2013 Football Blog Updates


This notice effects all football games played in Kentucky involving KHSAA member schools at al levels of play.

The point differential to initiate the running clock has been changed from 45 points to 36 points.

As was stated in the earlier notice email, the Commissioner’s Football Advisory Committee, which is made up of coaches and athletic administrators throughout the state, felt strongly that having had ample time to evaluate the previous difference, and with a desire surrounding injury prevention and efficient conduct of the games, that the number should be changed.

Best of luck to all as the season begins.
