First Round of Playoffs had 2 Challenges, none reversed for Schools Using DVSport Instant Replay

 Current Season Reversal Percentage is 22%

MONTGOMERY – Three challenges were made in 10 AHSAA varsity high school football contests using DVSport Instant Replay the last week of the regular season and the first round of state playoffs, said AHSAA Director of Officials Mark Jones. None of the calls on the field were reversed, Jones reports
     For the 2019 season, a 62 challenges have been issued by coaches in 72 games with 13 calls overturned upon review, a 21.0% reversal rate. In 2018, the first year DVSport Instant Replay was implemented, 91 games used Instant Replay with 73 total challenges with 18 calls overturned (25%). The Catch/No Catch, Fumble and Forward Progress calls made up 70% of the challenges last year. The NFHS has granted the AHSAA a three-year period to experiment with instant replay in regular-season and playoff games.
     “The one challenge two weeks ago was Tanner challenging that an East Limestone player fumbled prior to being down,” said Jones. “After the review, the play stood as called confirming that the runner was down prior to losing the ball.”
    Jones said out of six games using Instant Replay last week, “There were two challenges in the first round, both in the McAdory at Opelika game,” he said. “One was by McAdory on an interception catch and the other by Opelika on a fumble.  Both, the interception and the player being down prior to the fumble stood as called on the field after review.”
    This week, four games will be utilizing the DVSport Instant Replay in the second round of the state playoffs with three schools taking part for the first time this season: Pickens County, Falkville and St. Paul’s Episcopal.
