The Southern Alberta High School Football League will swing into action Sept. 13 and 14. Lethbridge Collegiate will renew their rivalry with Catholic Central on the 13th while Winston Churchill will take on Medicine Hat McCoy on the 14th. Both opening games, as will the entire league schedule in the West Division, will be played at Henderson Stadium with game time 8 p.m. Besides finalizing the 1974 schedule at the league's an- nual meeting it was also an- nounced by the Alberta Foot- ball Coaches Association that Dean Dahl, coach of the Catholic Central Cougars, was named the Urban High School Coach of the year, receiving the Laurie Robertson Memorial Award. The annual meeting also dis- cussed the rule changes to be implemented this year with the adoption of the Canadian Amateur Football Association's rules. Among the more dramatic changes is the adoption of a rule automatically making the ball dead when any part of the ball carrier's body, outside of his hands or feet, touch the turf, even with contact with an opponent. The option of drop or place kicking a convert for one point or passing or running for two points is available under the new rules as well as gaining a single point off a kickoff. Numerous other rule changes were also adopted by the meeting. The main objec- tive of the new rules is to in- sure ths safety of the par- ticipants without taking away from the excitement of the game.
