UIL passes new practice rule for high school football

Posted: Updated:

Just one more step and the way high school football teams can practice during the regular season will be changed. Today in Austin, the University Interscholastic League, which governs Texas high school sports, approved an amendment which says teams will only be allowed to have full contact for 90 minutes per week in practice during the season.

The UIL deems full contact as game speed tackling and blocking to the ground. If the rule is now approved by the state education commissioner, then it will take effect the week of the first game in 2013. Its important to note this does not apply to spring or offseason workouts. Some may think this is a big deal, but the way teams practice now, the new rule wont really change much according to a few local coaches.
