Due to a lack of eligible schools for this year, classes 2A-4A Public and classes 3A &amp; 4A private schools were each combined into one category. An All Sports award will be presented for each of these 10 categories in overall, girls and boys divisions at the conclusion of the 2017-18 school year.</em></p> <p><em>Points are awarded to a school based on its finish in FHSAA State Series competition in each sport in the classification in which it has been assigned to compete. The top 16 places are scored. In all sports with team scores, points are awarded as follows: 20 for the state champion, 12 for the state runner-up, 9 for the state semifinalists, 6 for 5-8th places, and 3 for 9-16th places.&nbsp;In sports where 16 or less schools qualify for the state tournament bracket, points will only be awarded to the 1st through 8th place finishers using the same scoring system.&nbsp;</em></p> <p><em>Schools get a 2-point bonus for winning a district or regional championship, and points are deducted for unsporting conduct: 0.25 points for Level 1 student-athlete ejection/unsporting conduct incident; 0.5 for Level 2 student-athlete ejection/unsporting conduct incident; 1.0 for Level 3 student-athlete ejection/unsporting conduct incident; 2.5 for Level 4 student-athlete ejection/unsporting conduct incident; 1.0 for Level 1 coach ejection/unsporting conduct incident, plus addition 0.5 points deducted for each $50 amount above initial fine; 1.5 for

0.5 points deducted for each $50 amount above initial fine; and approximately 3.0-5.0 additional points deducted for a school or team-based violation (e.g., bench-clearing brawl, coach takes team off the field, etc.). </em></p> <p><em>In the event of a tie for the award in either the overall, girls or boys divisions at the end of the school year, the following tiebreakers will be used: (1) number of state team championships won; (2) number of state team runners-up finishes; (3) number of regional team championships won; (4) number of regional team runners-up finishes; (5) number of district

Administration:</p> <p>The FHSAA Staff is sending positive thoughts your way as you all begin to pick up the pieces and rebuild your schools and your communities following Hurricane Irma.&nbsp; Please be advised that our staff is here to assist, should there be anything we can do to provide you help and/or support in this time of need.</p> <p>Although the FHSAA understands that in most areas of our state, high school athletics is certainly not a priority at this time, we have been inundated with questions and concerns regarding FHSAA Football specifically.&nbsp; Therefore, we&rsquo;ve put together the following bulletin and FAQ&rsquo;s to address all your questions and concerns.</p> <p><strong>September 12:&nbsp; Hurricane Irma (Football) Bulletin</strong></p> <p>The safety of the student-athletes, parents, coaches and school administrators impacted by Hurricane Irma remains our top concern.&nbsp; Due to the widespread and varying levels of impact from Hurricane Irma, the FHSAA has chosen not to uniformly cancel, postpone and/or prohibit play.&nbsp; The FHSAA plans to maintain the originally scheduled season dates in an effort to cause the least amount of impact on all other non-athletic activities.&nbsp; The decision to practice and/or play remains up to each individual school and/or school district.&nbsp; Provided facilities, roadways and conditions permit, each school is encouraged to resume play as soon as possible.&nbsp; In an effort to get teams conditioned appropriately and back on track with regularly scheduled games, <strong>practice will be permitted </strong>this Sunday (September 17th) only, with your school and/or school districts approval.</p> <p>In the event games need to be rescheduled or postponed, schools are encouraged to work together to come up with a date that best suits all parties involved.&nbsp; If a game is rescheduled, please email all specific details to <span class="spamspan"><span class="u">football</span> [at] <span class="d">fhsaa [dot] org</span></span> as soon as a decision has been made.</p> <p>With regard to the FHSAA&rsquo;s points system for Football, as originally planned, total points will be determined by dividing points earned by games played.&nbsp; If a school falls below the eight (8) game (minimum) requirement, the Executive Director may waive the minimum game requirement on a case-by-case basis.</p> <p><strong>Frequently Asked Questions</strong></p> <p style="margin-left:.75in">1.&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; Can we practice?</p> <p style="margin-left:1.25in">a.&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; Practice is a school and/or school district based decision.&nbsp; Provided your school and/or school district permits you to do so, practices are permitted.</p> <p style="margin-left:.75in">2.&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;

Due to a lack of eligible schools for this year, classes 2A-4A Public and classes 3A &amp; 4A private schools were each combined into one category. An All Sports award will be presented for each of these 10 categories in overall, girls and boys divisions at the conclusion of the 2016-17 school year.</em></p> <p><em>Points are awarded to a school based on its finish in FHSAA State Series competition in each sport in the classification in which it has been assigned to compete.

This year, fifteen high schools and two middle schools received the prestigious award.</p> <p>The format of how the award is given was changed for the 2016-2017 school year. Instead of section and overall winners, like in previous years, the FHSAA elected to name a first place and runner up winner for each classification. For the third straight year Episcopal (Jacksonville) has placed after winning two straight in 4A, and runner up this year in 5A. Weston Christion, after winning their section the past three years, placed runner up in the middle school category.</p> <p>&ldquo;Good sportsmanship gives student-athletes, coaches, fans, and family members the opportunity to enjoy a more wholesome environment in which all can share a better experience,&quot; FHSAA Executive Director Dr. Roger Dearing said. &quot;We strive to instill this principal into all of our athletes in the state of Florida. These habits can be used well-beyond the confines of a stadium or ballpark. We are happy to recognize these schools and their student-athletes who exemplify not only sportsmanship, but teamwork and citizenship as well.&quot;&nbsp;</p> <p>The award, presented annually since 1991, is named in honor of FHSAA Commissioner Emeritus Fred E. Rozelle. The overall classification recipient is presented to one school in each classification whose total sports program best exemplifies the qualities of sportsmanship as demonstrated by its coaches, players and spectators. Awards are also given to a runner up within each classification. Criteria for selection of the winners includes programs and activities implemented within the school and community to promote sportsmanship; the number and type of technical fouls received; the number and type of exceptional sportsmanship reports; and the source of the nomination.</p> <p>Classification runner-ups will each receive $500 and a commemorative plaque. Each classification winner will receive $2,500 and a plaque.&nbsp;</p> <p>The schools receiving the FHSAA/Fred E.

The procedure goes into effect August 1, the first practice day of the 2016 season.</p> <p>During the regular season, live contact will be restricted to 30 minutes per day and 80 minutes total per week. Live contact, defined as drills with game-like conditions where players are taken to the ground, will not occur on more than two consecutive days and may not exceed three practice days per week.</p> <p>&ldquo;Player safety has and will always be the number one goal of the FHSAA,&rdquo; FHSAA Executive Director Dr. Roger Dearing said. &ldquo;Protecting our student-athletes is paramount in growing the game of football and this administrative procedure is a step in the right direction.&rdquo;</p> <p>From day six through Monday of the first regular season game (or end of spring practice), live contact will be limited to 40 minutes each day, with no more than two straight days of live contact. During two-a-days, only one practice shall include live contact and it shall not surpass 40 minutes.</p> <p>&ldquo;The game of football will always come with some inherent risk, but we will never stop working to try and make one of the greatest team sports on earth safer,&rdquo; FHSAA Football Administrator Frank Beasley said.&nbsp;&ldquo;We will continue our efforts to educate and teach coaches on the Drive to December about how to run effective practices while using the limited-contact procedures.&rdquo;</p> <p>The FHSAA worked alongside <a href="http://www.practicelikepros.com/">Practice Like Pros</a> founder Terry O&rsquo;Neil in coming up with the procedure.

In addition, we require every student-athlete and every coach to view the 30 minute video, developed by the National Federation of High Schools, on the education, awareness and treatment of sustained concussions prior to any participation in a high school sport.</p> <p style="margin-left:-.75pt">To ensure that our member schools have the latest information, we are in regular communication with equipment manufacturers, industry related associations and other league organizers about advances in product testing, guidelines, and certifications.&nbsp; Additionally, our Sports Medicine Advisory Council, comprised mostly of medical doctors throughout the state, proactively seeks the latest data to share with the FHSAA member school Board of Directors.&nbsp; Earlier this year, we shared the results of the NFL Football Helmet Testing Study with our member schools so that they have the current scientific research, enabling them to make the most informed decisions possible on behalf of their student athletes.&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;</p> <p style="margin-left:-.75pt">With the combination of risk minimization efforts including concussion protocols, reducing contact in practices, and continuing education efforts, we believe contact sports, and football in particular, are safe for Florida student athletes.&nbsp; The FHSAA will continue to monitor the situation and provide useful information to our member schools and the student-athletes.&nbsp;&nbsp;</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p><strong><em>About the FHSAA </em></strong></p> <p><em>The Florida High School Athletic Association supervises and regulates interscholastic athletic programs for high school students at member public, private and charter schools. The organization also recognizes and honors academic achievement among student-athletes at almost 800 middle, junior and senior high schools statewide. Headquartered in Gainesville, it is the official governing body for interscholastic athletics in Florida.</em></p> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-attachment"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <div class="field-label-inline-first"> Attached File(s):&nbsp;</div> <div class="filefield-file"><a href="https://www.fhsaa.org/sites/default/files/attachments/2015/12/18/node-23154/fhaa_concussion_policy.pdf" type="application/pdf; length=208883" class="application-pdf" title="fhaa_concussion_policy.pdf">FHSAA Concussion Policy (Policy 40) (204 KB)</a></div> </div> </div> </div> Baseball Basketball - Boys Lacrosse - Boys Soccer - Boys Track & Field Volleyball - Boys Weightlifting - Boys Basketball (All) Basketball - Girls Lacrosse - Girls Soccer - Girls Track & Field - Adapted Volleyball - Girls Weightlifting - Girls Bowling Competitive Cheerleading Cross Country Flag Football Football Golf Lacrosse (All) Soccer (All) Softball Swimming & Diving Tennis Track & Field (All) Volleyball (All) Water Polo Weightlifting (All) Wrestling Athletic Services Health & Wellness Media, Communications, & Marketing Special Programs Fri, 18 Dec 2015 19:01:40 +0000 jcolasanti 23154 at https://www.fhsaa.org Richard Leavell, 52-year veteran FHSAA football official, passes away https://www.fhsaa.org/news/2015/1208 <p>Richard Leavell, 78, of Naples, passed away on Wednesday, Nov. 18, 2015. &nbsp;Leavell was a 52-year veteran football official with the FHSAA and, most recently, the Greater Naples Officials Association. &nbsp;Originally from San Pedro, Calif., and the Coachella Valley (Palm Springs) area, Leavell relocated to Naples 14 years ago.&nbsp;Leavell was also a college football referee with the Big West Conference and officiated in the USFL before transferring to Florida and worked two FHSAA State Championships. &nbsp;Private services were held in Naples.<br /> <br /> For more information on Leavell&#39;s life, please visit: <a href="http://www.legacy.com/obituaries/naplesnews/obituary.aspx?pid=176576307" target="_blank">http://www.legacy.com/obituaries/naplesnews/obituary.aspx?pid=176576307</a>.</p> Football Officials Tue, 08 Dec 2015 15:48:00 +0000 spolansky 23034 at https://www.fhsaa.org Bright House Sports Network to air all four State Championship games live at the Citrus Bowl this weekend https://www.fhsaa.org/news/2015/1207-0 <p>Bright House Sports Network will be coming to you live from the Citrus Bowl in Orlando for State Championship matchups in four classifications (5A-8A).
