Both times South Meck was inside the 20. The first one was after the play and occured on third down. The refs marked it half the distance to the goal 4th. down. The second time the same thing happened. They got half the distance but not an automatic first down.

2 Replies and 1062 Views Roughing the punter?  1062  2 Started by  hokiemtc I watched the South Meck / Myers Park game last night and after South Meck&39;s first series, Myers Park was called for roughing the punter. South Meck has a rugby style kicker and he rolled out of the pocket like always, and the Myers Park player crashed into him after narrowly missing blocking the kick. I thought once a rugby style kicker left the pocket, he was fair game just like any other ball carrier Was this the right call
