We are thrilled to award these schools 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.</p> <p>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 exceptional sportsmanship reports; and the source of the nomination.</p> <p>Classification runner-ups receive $500 and a commemorative plaque, with the classification winner taking home $2,500 and a plaque.&nbsp;</p> <p>The schools receiving the FHSAA/Fred E.

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.

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;

Rozelle Sportsmanship Awards https://www.fhsaa.org/news/2017/0612 <p><strong>GAINESVILLE, Fla</strong>.&nbsp;<strong>(6/12/17)</strong>&nbsp;&ndash; The Florida High School Athletic Association announced Monday the recipients of this year&rsquo;s Fred E. Rozelle Sportsmanship Awards. The FHSAA promotes sportsmanship both on and off the field and wants to recognize the schools that portray these ideals. The award is given to schools whose athletic teams demonstrated exemplary sportsmanship during the 2016-2017 regular season as well as FHSAA State Series competition. 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.

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.

Those changes were subsequently approved by the National Federation of State High School Associations (NFHS) Board of Directors. </span><br /> <br /> <strong><span><u>BASEBALL</u></span></strong><br /> <br /> <span>Beginning with the 2016 season, umpires will be required to issue a warning to coaches before restriction to the bench/dugout or ejecting them as part of a new penalty progression to promote preventive officiating. &nbsp;</span><br /> <br /> <span>The revision to Rule 3-3-1 Penalty was one of two changes recommended by the NFHS Baseball Rules Committee at its June 7-9 meeting. </span><br /> <br /> <span>Previously, issuing a warning to an offending coach was optional for umpires, who will now restrict to the bench/dugout or eject coaches who commit a violation after previously being warned for a minor offense. However, coaches can still be ejected on a first offense if it is deemed to be major. </span><br /> <br /> <span>Also part of the modification to Rule 3-3-1 Penalty, coaches who receive a written warning (Rule 10-2-3) will be restricted to the bench and/or dugout for the remainder of the game. </span><br /> <br /> <span>&ldquo;The new rule change has initiated a penalty progression, starting with a written warning, restriction to the bench/dugout and subsequent ejection from the contest,&rdquo; said Elliot Hopkins, NFHS director of sports and student services and liaison to the Baseball Rules Committee.</span><br /> <br /> <span>The changes to Rule 3-3-1 Penalty will help to de-escalate contentious situations and allow coaches to dictate their status in the game by their behavior, Hopkins said.</span><br /> <br /> <span>&ldquo;A successful game official practices preventive officiating, and this new penalty progression will allow the official to issue penalties that give the coach the opportunity to remain in the game and teach his players.&rdquo; </span><br /> <br /> <span>The other change approved by the Baseball Rules Committee is an addition to Rule 3-3-1. Article &ldquo;q&rdquo; will state that a coach, player, substitute, attendant or other bench personnel shall not &ldquo;have any physical contact, spitting, kicking of dirt or any other physical action directed toward an umpire.&rdquo; The addition of article &ldquo;q&rdquo; serves to clarify other behaviors that would result in an ejection from the game, Hopkins said.</span><br /> <br /> <span>&ldquo;Bad behavior that is being imitated from other levels has no place in education-based athletics and will not be tolerated,&rdquo; Hopkins said. &ldquo;If we are to continue to use sport to teach life lessons, then we have to ensure that appropriate behavior and conduct are modeled from those adults in the role of coach/teacher.&rdquo;</span><br /> <br /> <span>In addition to the two rules changes, the Baseball Rules Committee approved three Points of Emphasis for the 2016 season. Points of emphasis are developed by NFHS rules committees and should receive special focus and attention by officials, coaches, players, fans and other leaders within the high school setting.</span><br /> <br /> <span>Points of Emphasis developed by the Baseball Rules Committee for the 2016 season are as follows:</span></p> <ol> <li><strong><span>INTERMEDIATE PENALTIES/RESTRICTION TO THE BENCH/DUGOUT </span></strong></li> <li><strong><span>PROPER CATCHER&rsquo;S EQUIPMENT </span></strong></li> <li><strong><span>SPORTSMANSHIP &ndash; CELEBRATIONS AROUND OR NEAR THE PLATE AND POST-GAME EJECTIONS</span></strong></li> </ol> <p><br /> <strong><span><u>SOFTBALL</u></span></strong><br /> <br /> <span>In softball, one rule change was recommended by the NFHS Softball Rules Committee at its June 15-17 meeting. In the new Article 4 of Rule 2-57, the committee provided a standard definition of a &ldquo;projected&rdquo; substitute. </span><br /> <br /> <span>Rule 3-3-3 prohibits the use of a projected substitute, which is now defined in the new article as &ldquo;a player who does not immediately participate in the game.&rdquo; </span><br /> <br /> <span>&ldquo;There has been some confusion among both officials and coaches about substitution procedure,&rdquo; said Theresia Wynns, NFHS director of sports and officials education and liaison to the Softball Rules Committee. &ldquo;Therefore, the committee felt it was necessary to clear up that process and provide coaches and officials with a standard definition of a projected substitute.&rdquo;</span><br /> <br /> <span>The following Points of Emphasis were approved by the Softball Rules Committee:</span></p> <ol> <li><strong><span>STRIKE ZONE (FP) </span></strong></li> <li><strong><span>DP/FLEX EDUCATION </span></strong></li> <li><strong><span>PITCHING (FP)</span></strong></li> </ol> <p><span>According to the NFHS Athletics Participation Survey, baseball is the fourth-most popular sport for boys at the high school level with 482,629 participants in 15,789 schools. Fast-pitch softball is the fifth-most popular sport for girls with 364,297 participants in 15,225 schools during the 2013-14 season.</span><br /> <br /> <span>This press release was written by Brandon Jones, a summer intern in the NFHS Publications and Communications Department and a junior at Indiana University Bloomington. </span></p> <p style="text-align:center"><span>###</span></p> <p><strong><span><u>About the National Federation of State High School Associations (NFHS)</u></span></strong><br /> <br /> <span>The NFHS, based in Indianapolis, Indiana, is the national leadership organization for high school sports and performing arts activities.

It has provided free heart screenings to over 10,000 students. Of those tested,<strong> </strong>approximately 100 students have discovered potentially fatal heart conditions. It was behind the passage of<strong> </strong>the Sudden Cardiac Arrest Prevention Act in Pennsylvania, the first law in the country to protect student-athletes from sudden cardiac arrest. With the help of Simon&rsquo;s Fund, this law has been passed in five other<strong> </strong>states as well. The organization recently launched HeartBytes, the first-of-its-kind youth cardiac registry for<strong> </strong>seemingly healthy kids in an effort to promote research. In 2014, Phyllis Sudman was named the 2014<strong> </strong>National Woman of Worth by L&rsquo;Oréal Paris, beating out more than 4,300 women who were nominated for this<strong> </strong>honor.<br /> <strong>&nbsp;<br /> MEDIA CONTACTS:</strong><br /> Bruce Howard, 317-972-6900<br /> Director of Publications and Communications<br /> National Federation of State High School Associations<br /> <u><span class="spamspan"><span class="u">bhoward</span> [at] <span class="d">nfhs [dot] org</span></span></u><br /> &nbsp;<br /> Chris Boone, 317-972-6900<br /> Assistant Director of Publications and Communications<br /> National Federation of State High School Associations<br /> <u><span class="spamspan"><span class="u">cboone</span> [at] <span class="d">nfhs [dot] org</span></span></u></span> </p> 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 Officials Mon, 22 Jun 2015 11:26:00 +0000 spolansky 21390 at https://www.fhsaa.org
