Freebase

  1. Holder

    In American football the holder is the player who receives the snap from the long snapper during field goal attempts made by the placekicker. The holder is set on one knee approximately 7 yards behind the line-of-scrimmage. While the holder is set, he places the hand which is closest to the place kicker on the ground, and holds the other hand out to receive the snap. After receiving the snap, the holder will place the football on the turf, or block, with the laces facing the uprights, and balance the ball with one or two finger. The holder, like the placekicker and the long snapper, is protected from intentional contact from the opposing team. The penalty for roughing the holder is 15 yards and an automatic first down.
