This may have been already answered previously, but are ball carriers allowed to hurdle a tackler at the high school level? Have heard several conflicting views on this.

No. A player may not hurdle an opponent who has one or both feet on the ground. 15 yards from the spot of the foul.

Dose that include diving over another player (like on a goal line over the top)? Or is it just a hurdle as we think of hurdling (if that makes any sense)?

Second question, does that mean if the defender is on his knees they can hurdle them?

Hurdling is feet first. (Illegal)
Diving is head first. (Legal)

A player on his knees is not on his feet.
