WCPO-TV is reporting that the Ohio High School Athletic Association is considering using instant replay for high school football state championship games. Earlier this year, the National Federation of State High School Associations approved a rule change allowing states to create instant replay procedures for state playoff football games.
Beau Rugg, OHSAA director of Officiating and Sport Management told WCPO:
“We’re working hard on it. We have the infrastructure at the state finals. They haven’t gotten back to me exactly what they have there at their disposal. We’re getting a lot of good information and then we can make good decisions.”WCPO-TV
Minnesota began using instant replay in its championship games two years ago. Texas, which doesn’t play under NFHS rules, used instant replay last season in its title games.
There’s no timetable for the OHSAA’s decision on adopting replay.
