Every member of the Class of 2013 with no remaining college eligibility who has been selected a pre-season NCCAA regional all-star is eligible to participate in a USA College Football small college four-day, three-night bowl event. Any son of a Wounded Warrior who meets the criteria is guaranteed a slot in the event that is recognized by the national sports media and the College Football Hall of Fame as the official post-season small college All-Star Games.

With several NCCAA programs in transition and playing independent schedules, USA College Football has established the USA Small College Football division that will provide student/athletes at all small college independent football programs to be recognized as players of the week as well as post-season All-Americans. Click on the logo at the left and learn more. Long-time SID Dave Beyer, the new SID for the McMurry Warhawks will serve as the chair of this committee for the 2012 season.
Several rules changes will be in force for the 2012 season. The ball will be placed at the 35-yard line instead of the 30 on kickoffs. Players on the kicking team can not line up for the play behind the 30-yard line, which is intended to limit the running start kicking teams used to have during the play while touchbacks on free kicks will be moved to the 25-yard line instead of the 20 to encourage more touchbacks. Touchbacks on other plays (for example, punts that go into the end zone, or fumbles that go out of the end zone) will remain at the 20-yard line.
If a player loses his helmet (other than as the result of a foul by the opponent, such as a facemask), it will be treated like an injury. The player must leave the game and is not allowed to participate for the next play. Current injury timeout rules guard against using this rule to gain an advantage from stopping the clock. Additionally, if a player loses his helmet, he must not continue to participate in the play, in order to protect him from injury.
As to blocking below the waist, offensive players in the tackle box at the snap who are not in motion are allowed to block below the waist legally without restriction. All other players are restricted from blocking below the waist with a few exceptions (for example, straight-ahead blocks). There will also be a new rule prohibiting players from leaping over blockers in an attempt to block a punt. Receiving-team players trying to jump over a shield-blocking scheme has become popular for teams in punt formation. Receiving-team players try to defeat this scheme by rushing into the backfield to block a punt. In some cases, these players are contacted and end up flipping in the air and landing on their head or shoulders.
