You must start on the LOS and be in the free blocking zone!!
Rules review: The skinny: you can not cut unless you start on the LOS and are in the FBZ. This means a FB, Wing, LB, or anyone else not on the LOS at the snap can cut or be cut an opposing player. Example: a FB can't be cut on a power play by the DE, even if the DE starts on the LOS and the cut is in the FBZ...the FB did not start on the LOS>

Rule 2 section 17 article 2 - Blocking below the waist is permitted in the free blocking zone when the following conditions are met:

a. All players involved in the blocking are on the line of scrimmage and in the zone at the snap;
b. The contact is in the zone.

(The "on the line of scrimmage" requirement was added within the last year or two.)

Additional rule: you can not grab ankles/legs of pulling lineman...defensive holding.

Something to consider...
...the average salary of a person who has a bachelor's degree is $51000. The average salary of a person who has only a high school dipolma is $27000. Getting good grades is the first step.

2003: 3rd Place Trophy for Wildcats
There were many records broken in 2003 (i.e., most wins, most points scored, most yardage, and many more), but one of the biggest accomplishments was placing 3rd in the 2A state championship tournament. Despite a heart-wrenching loss to Meridian in the semi-finals, the Wildcats are proud of what they accomplished. Thanks to all that supported us in our quest for the crown.

Wildcat Class and Pride
Humble and classy in victory, dignified in defeat. I have a great deal of respect for the players in the Wildcat program. They are hard workers, dedicated, and committed to each other. These characteristics will lead these young men to successful careers and to be excellent citizens in the future. You may be taunted and ridiculed at times by opponents who don't have any class. But remember this, someday those type of people, because of their behavior, will be working for you.
