9. Is it possible for points to be scored by the D on a PAT? Although highly unlikely, it is possible for K to run the ball into their own endzone resulting in a safety, or maybe a fumble and a touchdown.
10. Does "pass" mean forward pass, and if so, can a backwards lateral be thrown form a knee?
11. The side of the shoulderpads count as long as it is also inside the collar, correct?

9. No. Play would simply be ruled an unsuccessful try.
10. No. Has to rise before he does anything, including a backwards pass.
11. No. This is not a horsecollar tackle. Must be from back.

can be from the back OR the side. Must change the direction of the ballcarrier.

9. Rule 8-3-3 Guess we'll never see this. Kind of like a safety in overtime. Am I reading this one wrong?
11. see above Rule 9-4-3k I like to see rules added that increase safety, but the way this is written leaves it open to individual interpretation. One of those "That aint no horse collar!" when it's called on our team, and "You're going to get my player hurt!" if it's not called for our team.

#2 is not correct is it? What if say a defensive end jumps across but doesnt cause an offensive player to jump and then comes back, would the play not continue? I know it's like that in college football. Encroachment is only contact. And then you have offsides when a defensive player jumps in to the neutral zone causing an offensive player to react. Those are both dead ball fouls. But you can have a live offsides when an outsidedefender is either lined up offsides or jumps offsides and the ball is snapped to force the penalty. Those plays are live.

#2 is correct. Once any player (offense or defense) jumps in the neutral zone it is a dead ball foul in NFHS rules. The first player in the neutral zone is the one charged with the foul.

#8) I may be wrong, but I think thtere is no pass interference if the pass is tipped.

Not sure this is right, though I saw it in the LaGrange-Carver game. The ball was snapped high and the Carver punter tipped it up and to himself. He then scrambled and threw it to a player while virtually everyone was downfield. No flag.

The play you described turned into a pass play although it was set up as a scrimmage kick. The scrimmage kick did not occur. The play turned into a pass play and the umpire would have coverage of ineligibles downfield. If ineligibles were downfield, a penalty should have been called.
