He can not.
Rule 7. Section 2. Article 5 part 2 Says the player snapping the ball can not be an eligible receiver.


Not true. The recipient of the TD pass was lined up as an end. Regardless of snapping, he’s eligible.



2. On Fourth down or during a kick try, When A (The offense) sets of shifts into a scrimmage-kick formation, any player numbered 1 to 49 or 80 to 99 may take the position of any A player numbered 50 to 79. A player in the game under this exception must assume an intial position on his line of scrimmage between the ends and he remains an ineligible forward-pass receiver during that down unless the pass is touched by B(the defense)

Congrats to MCI you played a great game, the players decided the game not the officials but they did miss this call. He was covered by and end and snapped the ball and by rule is an ineligible receiver.

Cape also had 5 men down field on a screen pass that should have been called but it looked like the refs wanted the players to decide the game and it was a great game.

Newspaper

MCI tops Cape Elizabeth for Class C state crown
http://bangordailynews.com/2017/11/17/s ... ate-crown/


MCI denies Cape Elizabeth, wins Class C championship

The Huskies, Class D champions in 2016, make it back-to-back state titles with a 30-13 victory.

... Using a powerful running game, MCI took control from the first play and never relinquished it to win its second consecutive state championship.

MCI won Class D a year ago, and this is the school’s fourth title overall. Cape Elizabeth (9-3) was in its second state title game, losing to Leavitt in 2009.

“This means the world,” said Adam Bertrand, a senior running back for MCI and son of Coach Tom Bertrand. “We all knew we could do it. We didn’t want to come in as a sixth seed but that’s what we were given, so we rolled with it and we weren’t going to let anybody get in our way. We really committed to winning.”

New class, same result for MCI
Year after winning Class D title, Huskies take home Gold Ball in C.

...Last season, the Huskies (8-4) won their first state championship playing in Class D. This season, making the jump to Class C, MCI rallied from a 4-4 regular season to emerge as the No. 6 seed out of the North region en route to the state title. After losing three of their first five games to start the year, the Huskies won six of their final seven to secure the school’s second Gold Ball in program history.

“Belief,” Bertrand said. “We started believing we could do it, big-time.”

The victory Friday avenged a 35-15 MCI defeat at the hands of Cape Elizabeth during the regular season in late September.

MCI uses some trickery to upend Cape Elizabeth
Huskies score pivotal TD on a wacky play.

...So the Huskies got creative. Mad scientist creative.

“It was almost in unison,” associate head coach Woody Moore said. “We looked at each other and said ‘Bullseye.’ “

With the ball just 6 yards from the end zone and the Huskies looking to stretch a slim advantage, they dipped deep into the playbook. Linemen started running around. Players dropped back.

And then it was all set in motion with a stunning result. “Bullseye” was a hit, a touchdown pass from Ryan Friend to Andrew Whitaker that gave the Huskies a 21-13 lead and served as the key play anchoring MCI’s 30-13 upset of Cape Elizabeth at the Alfond Stadium Friday night.

“The ‘mo’ came over to our sideline after that play,” Moore said. “That was huge.”

You may want to re-watch the video, go to the 43 sec mark of the video....Unless my eyes are playing tricks on me the player snapping the ball has a white shirt under his uni, the other two players do not.....Player catching the TD has white shirt under his uni, the other two players end up to the left of the catch.....Congrats MCI, very nice run!

It's not where they end up when the ball is caught that matters. It's where they line up when it's snapped. It appeared that the snapper was covered on either side at the snap and thus was not an end and was an ineligible receiver... then caught the TD that ended being a major play. Don't have a dog in this fight but I think the refs missed a big one.

And, on that play nobody with an eligible number replaced a lineman or a player with an ineligible number. All of the linemen lined up on the left (all 5 of them w an end to their left) and the snapper was an eligible end on the right. The player to both his right and left were off the line and eligible as well. The rule you referenced would apply should there be less than 5 players that are wearing linemen numbers. Its a legal play.
