Question 9The rules for a football player receiving a yellow flag for pass interference are as follows:

IF a defensive player

Holds the receiving player back from moving forward to catch the pass

OR pushes the receiving player away from the pass

OR does not look back toward the incoming ball

OR trips the player intentionally

OR grabs the receiving players arm before the ball arrives

THEN the player should receive a yellow flag and and the ball is placed at the spot of the pass interference

If the defensive player follows very closely to receiving player without impeding his forward progress, does look back up the field to track the incoming pass, but the receiving player does not catch the ball, then the defensive player: 


  1. Should receive a yellow flag
  2. Should not receive a yellow flag but does get a 5 yard penalty
  3. Should receive a yellow flag but the ball is returned to the original spot
  4. Nothing should happen
