    This is called once every year from a team. 90% of the time they do not call Offensive pass interference

    1. The pass that Blackwood caught in the first half should have been defensive pass interference, Eric cut in front of the defender and the DB was on his back and almost knocked him down before he caught it.
    2. Offensive pass interference is loss of down in high school.
    3. I have not seen the tape of the game, so I'm not certain about the call on Tate as it was on the opposite side(I did not see any contact and it looked as though the defender was playing the inside on Tate's right shoulder and Tate turned his body and caught the ball over his left shoulder next to the sideline) from Corbin in front of the DeSales bench, whose coach was lobbying hard for it.
    4. I saw the official place the ball on the 15 when Corbin started their set of downs and if the coaches and fans had not pointed it out they were going to leave it there.
    5. Corbin had more peanlties than I can ever remember(out of all the motion penalties called I only saw movement on one of them)and they kept occuring on 3rd and short.

    Bredman, you are not entirely correct about holding being a spot foul. The spot of the foul is important, but it is not always the enforcement spot. The enforcement spot is determined by the action during the play such as a loose ball play or run, and whether team A or B fouled. Holding could be enforced from the previous spot, end of run, or the spot of foul.

    I think the above post by runningref puts this falsehood to rest:

    OPI = 15 yards and loss is like the death penalty for a parking violation.

    It is an interesting rule, with three different answers.
    NFL - 5 yards and loss,
    NCAA - 15 yards, no loss,
    NFHS - 15 yards and loss.

    I watched the tape tonight and now wish that I had not. There was no contact at all on the pass interference call. I would love to have that official explain that call and about 5 others that he made(most of them at crucial moments in the 4th quarter). Also watch what happened on the spotting of the ball prior to the 3rd down play(Tate was a little shook up after the tackle and was late getting back to the huddle and they had already set the ball for play, he accidentally kicks the ball back 2-3 feet and the official re-spots the ball where he kicked it and instead of the ball inside the 2, it was now outside the 2). The spot after the 3rd down run was approx a yard short of his forward progress(is there forward progress in high school?)also leaving 4th and 2.
    These may not have made any difference in the outcome, but the kids on both teams deserved better than this.

    15 yards and loss of down has to be the most severe penatly there is, and often forces a punt. Holding, unsportsmanlike conduct, personal fouls, facemasks etc do not have as severe a penalty.

    Compare it to Defensive pass interference, it's 15 yards and automatic first down but that at times seems like a lesser penalty when the alternative is allowing a 40 or 50 yard passing TD.

    I'd agree with the offensive penalty if the defensive penalty was changed to the NFL rule (spot foul or 1st and goal on 1 if in endzone). However with high school and college just getting 15 yards the offensive side of the penalty is just too much.

    I agree with you!!

    What makes it interesting to me is they let both receiver and defender bump all the way down the field with no interference either way.

    I'd like to see them go back to no bumping or anything and make it harder for either player to get an advantage.
