Pennsylvania adds new limit to contact in football practice

The Pennsylvania Interscholastic Athletic Association has limited contact during high school football practice this season to 60 minutes a week, according to the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette.

The new rule continues a shrinking amount of contact in practices over the last few years, going from three days a week during the season to 90 minutes a week.

A rule that would have prevented teams from allowing players to use shoulder pads in offseason workouts did not garner the two-thirds majority required to pass by the PIAA board of directors.

The current rule — allowing to use shoulder pads and helmets — will remain in place.
