Yes, 5 yard and 15 yard facemask still exist in high school.
REALLY ????? there was an obvious tackle by Wayne against Centerville this past Friday. The call was Horse Collar.... Directly in front of the chain gang couple yards away from that side judge, a hand full of jersey !!!! No equipment !!! and as the tackler had the back of the jersey, that side judge was already reaching for his flag.

WOW !!! thanks for the clarification !!!!
