In-Game Tablet Technology is Coming to Texas High School Football

It’s official! GameStrat is thrilled to announce that in-game tablet technology is now making its debut in Texas High School Football, thanks to recent rule changes adopted by the UIL.


Official UIL Texas High School Football Rule Changes

The UIL organization has officially accepted new rules, paving the way for the use of in-game video tablet technology in Texas high school football games this fall.


Specific guidelines regarding the use of technology during games are as follows, and can be found in this official UIL document:

"Tablets for In-game Video (Rule 1-4-11-a, Exception 3) - Standard Tablets for in-game video only is permissive in 2024 for all football playing subdivisions. As written, this proposal/rule change WILL NOT be applicable to the UIL game. The UIL will replace this proposal with its own technology rule/exception. The basic premise of the UIL rule is to allow technology in the coach’s booths and locker rooms, but not on the sideline. Below is the UIL technology rule/exception: Teams are allowed to use video & data technology (computers, tablets, I-Pads, smart phones, etc) during the game and during half time intermission. The use of the technology is limited to the coaching booths and locker rooms – no sideline or team area use is allowed during the game. The game officials will not be responsible for enforcement of restricted sideline use, but the officials are expected to report any known or suspected violation of this rule in their game report to the UIL. In addition, if any team personnel engages an official with any video technology to show or review a play or game action, an automatic Unsportsmanlike Conduct foul will result. NOTE: NO technology is allowed on the sideline or in the team area. Violations will follow UIL protocols of being sent to the DEC, with the possibility of game forfeiture."
