Offensive player declares 'Ball is in the Air'.

Defensive player has knowledge of receiver and wants to rush/block a down field offensive piece that is not the receiver in order to gain a position to either:

1) Intercept or make the pass incomplete.


2) Gain a position on the field such that after the ball is caught he can then tackle the receiving piece.

This rush/block would be legal only if the ball is consider to have passed the LOS while it is in the air. Is it correct to assume that the ball has passed the LOS?

Yes. Everything mentioned here is correct.

Any player can be rushed or blocked while "ball is in the air" as long as the rushing player is on the same side of LOS as the player being rushed (with the exception of the player who ultimately receives the ball, since this would result in pass interference).
