Can the center ever catch a pass My son is the center and long snapper for his high school team and claims they have a play that has him catching a pass?

Offensive lineman are not allowed past the line of scrimmage prior to a pass. He could catch a screen pass behind the line though. Or they'd have to declare him eligible before the play. When I played flag football we used to do center sneaks. The ball has to touch the QB hands to be considered a hand off though. I don't think that would work well in tackle football, but in flag football where they only had a couple people rushing you could easily get 5-10 yards before anyone noticed.

Which football players can catch a pass?

The running backs and wide receivers can catch the ball and so can the quarter back if it is a halfback or receiver option designed to go to him. The tight ends can also catch a pass too. A lineman can also catch the ball but that is only if it touches a defender first. To be more specific: By rule, the eligible receivers are the two players on either end of the offensive line (usually wide receivers or tight ends) and any of the players in the backfield (including all backs and flankers who are at least one yard off the line of scrimmage).
