are general guidelines/criteria for which Official should blow the ball back
into play after a dead ball:
the “On” Official
the Official who is closer to the ball
the Official who will be taking the “10 second count”

who is blowing the ball into play should have one arm, straight up into the air.
When he gets the “ready for play” from his partner, he then blows his
the same time that he is blowing his whistle, he should be winding his arm.
Official who is not blowing the ball into play, when ready, should be pointing
in the direction that the team with the ball, will be going.
