    This clip demonstrates how we should handle double whistles. There is a drive down the center of the lane and a crash. L and C have double whistles. They both get their fist up. There is no preliminary signal from either official. They are able to make eye contact and that ultimately allows L to make the call and take it to the table. Being patient with our signals helps prevent the dreaded “blarge”

    This is reasonably a duel-area call, where both the Lead and the Center can have a primary whistle. Good eye-contact and the Lead took the call. The defender was a secondary defender, so, good for the Lead to take this one. Remember that the proper NFHS mechanic is the “hand-behind-the-head” player control signal.
