Enforcement of penalties behind the line of scrimmage

Question

Are offensive holding penalties always marked off from the spot of the foul, even if that spot is behind the line of scrimmage?  Just watching Valpo/Michigan City game and the holding occurred 2 years behind the LOS and they marched off 10 yards from there, making it 1st and 22.   If so, this must be different than College and Pros.

Not always marked off at the spot. If the end of the run is prior to the spot of the penalty, it's marked off from the end of the run. we hear all the time on penalties behind the LOS "It's enforced from the LOS!" I smile as we walk off from the flag or the end of the run and signal the ready for play :).

It depends on the type of play. If the offensive holding occurs on a pass play, it’s enforced from the previous spot, unless the foul occurred behind the previous spot, in which case it’s enforced from the spot of the foul.

On a running play, offensive holding is enforced from the end of the run, unless the spot of the foul is behind the end of the run, in which case it’s enforced from the spot of the foul.

Hey, if this stuff was easy, anyone could do it. 😂
