When Yardage Count Officially in Stats?

by DB

I am a head high school football coach and had a couple questions on how we should record our stats.

1. Does a 2 point conversion pass count as an attempt for the QB and does a 2 point conversion rush count as a carry for the RB.

2. If a pass is completed, and penalty is called on the offense, but the play still results in positive yardage after the penalty is assessed (like a holding call downfield)..Do you count this as a pass completion and net yardage after penalty credited to the QB and WR?

Tex' Answer:

1. Does a 2 point conversion pass count as an attempt for the QB and does a 2 point conversion rush count as a carry for the RB.

The answer is it doesn’t count.



The Pass: Competition/Attempt/Yards are not counted in Passing Stats



Same if a RB runs the ball over, his Rush Attempts/Yards are not counted in Rushing Stats



What does count in the scoring: as 2-point Pass Attempt…Complete 0 Yards and of course the 2 points

On the rushing play his counted on the same manner Rush Att and Made.



Don’t count these in Passing or Rushing stats…ONLY IN SCORING STATS.



IE:

Player TD PAT A-M 2PT A-M




2. If a pass is completed, and penalty is called on the offense, but the play still results in positive yardage after the penalty is assessed (like a holding call downfield). Do you count this as a pass completion and net yardage after penalty credited to the QB and WR?



Yes the penalty yards count; as my only explanation it does and the others and the above doesn’t…I was instructed this while in college and applied as necessary.
