On a kickoff, if a player attempts to field a kick and muffs it and the ball rolls into the endzone, should the play be ruled a touchback?

We've been calling about the same amount of time then. May I ask what position?

Also, tell me some of your favorite places you've worked.

Yes it is a touchback. It is a kick until it is possessed.

I am an umpire. Two of the best places I have worked were Smyrna and Dobbins-Bennett

I'm an umpire as well. I've never worked either school. For me, Giles County was great. I've worked there many times but i really like working at Mt Juliet. They have a new stadium that is very nice.

Thanks, I've been wondering about this for a few years. It seems like different refs have called it different ways.

Should never be called anything but a touchback. You should never see a high school player allowed to return a kick out of the end zone.

Haha I completely understand.

I'm just not a big fan of all the Memphis area refs (some are good), so because your not a ref in West TN, I like you (no homo)

I worked a 3rd round game at Maryville once and a semi at Baylor. We usually go west and south for playoffs so not many chances to go east. I've heard there are some great places to work out east though.
