Targeting Information and Video

“Targeting” refers to when a player takes aim at an opponent for purposes of attacking with an apparent intent that goes beyond making a legal tackle or a legal block or playing the ball. For a video from NCAA regarding targeting and football player safety, please go to:

The UIL Football Rules Committee developed the following modification to the penalty noted in the video:

In UIL games, the penalty statement(s) for rules 9-1-3 & 9-1-4 will include disqualification, however, the disqualification will be for the remainder of the game only. Instant Replay review does not apply, nor does an appeal to a national coordinator. Local school districts and/or UIL District Committees may apply additional disciplinary action.
