Yes the football can be advanced by any team Incorrect - the defense cannot advance a fumble in high school football. The play is blown dead upon fumble and the ball spotted where the change in possession occurred.


Yes. The only 'weird' fumble rule is on 4th down. On 4th down, only the fumbler may advance his own fumble. If any other offensive player gets possession, the ball is dead and placed at the spot of the fumble. Since a kickoff is, by definition, not 4th down, it can be advanced.


If the 'kick' is intentional, it is an illegal kick penalty. If it is unintentional, it is a fumble.

If there is a facemask on the defense then it should negate any fumble they may have acquired during play.


If the offense recovers the fumble and advances it beyond the original first down line, yes, it is a first down. If the ball is not advanced past the original first down line then the next play is the down after the one that the fumble occurred on. For example, if a running back fumbles the ball on second down and an offensive line man recovers the fumble but does not advance the ball beyond the original first down line, it is then third down. If the defense recovers the fumble, then it is an automatic first down wherever the player that recovered the fumble is downed.

No, but in college the offense could still run the ball in for two points. In high school or NFL football, the try is dead the moment the defense recovers the ball.


A lateral pass that hits the ground is a fumble, and if the defense recovers, it is a turnover. If the receiver drops the ball after he catches a lateral pass, it is considered an incompletion.

A turnover is the loss of possesion without the use of a punt, a score, or four tries at a first down. This comes in the form of an interception, where the ball is thrown and a defensive player gains possesion of the football. Also this comes in the form of a fumble, where the offensive player in possesion of the football loses control of the football and the defense recovers the ball.
