    I don’t know about the rest of the special teams but using the placekick as the punt is a pretty smart idea. It’s also pretty gutsy due to how hard it is to cover a kick like that. FS appears to of done a very good job getting their coverage team down. I do wonder why JC didn’t go after it like a FG. It would of made it much harder to cover.

    This game was about as ugly as you could get. I thought both defenses stepped up when needed, but it was the Wildcat defense that stopped JC multiple times in the redzone. Congrats to JC on another great season! Glad to be a Franklin-Simpson Wildcat today!!

    My senior year we defeated our cross town rival. I was the TE on victory and our QB told the white hat we were taking a knee. Everyone on the defense stepped back and stood up.... except the 6'2", 230-ish defensive end in front of me who got in a four point stance and charged right at me as the ball was snapped. Thankfully nothing came of it, but I am very interested in knowing if this is a rule at the varsity level.

    It’s not a rule. It’s a generally accepted practice to everyone ease up but it is not a rule. In fact the officials will often remind players to protect themselves. It is a live play like any other play.
