during one drive a high school football team lost 3 yards on the first down, lost 5 yards on the second down, then gained 15 yards on the third down. how many yards do they need to get a first down? should they go for it or punt?
10 yards are needed for a first down. With the losses, they needed to make 18 yards. They made 15.
The decision to punt or go for it would depend on where they are in the field, the time remaining and the current score. They might even want to try a field goal.
