IHSAA institutes "mercy rule" for football

NOW: IHSAA institutes “mercy rule“ for football

INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. - There are some changes coming to high school football in the near future. The Indiana High School Athletic Association voted on several items in the latest board meeting in Indianapolis this past weekend. One of those items was a vote to approve a new "mercy rule" in high school football, which will now mean that if one team is winning by at least 35 points in the second half then there will be a running clock for the rest of the game.

ABC57 spoke with Jimtown athletic director Nate Dean, who also serves on the IHSAA board which ultimately made the deciding vote after hearing from the state's coaches' association. See part of the conversation above.
