A proposal to amend a high school football rule that prevents teams that play in Week Zero of the regular season from playing two scrimmages was passed by member schools during the KHSAA’s annual meeting of delegates Wednesday at the Lexington Convention Center.
The measure, put forth by the Football Advisory Committee, would amend Bylaw 23 of the football playing rules to remove the second scrimmage restriction from teams that have their first regular-season game during Week Zero and allow those teams that play during Week Zero to play a second scrimmage. It passed by a vote of 167-22.
The scrimmage would be limited to allowable contact per the acclimation and acclimatization requirements and would not extend the length of the playing season. The amendment must be officially adopted by the KHSAA Board of Control at a later meeting.
