Custom Rejection: Ernesto under NFHS Football Rules for 2013 PASS INTERFERENCE PENALTIES REVISED (7-5-10 PENALTY; Table 7-5): This rule change removes the automatic first down for defensive pass interference and the loss of down for offensive pass interference. The 15-yard penalty provision remains for both fouls. Here is alink to the NFHS website and their 6/4/13 posting: http://www.nfhs.org/Football/
