No. In College Football, the receiver must have at least one foot on the ground before being forced out of bounds. In professional football, the receiver must have both feet on the ground before being forced out of bounds.
In American Football, if a player has one foot out of bounds when he catches the football, he is out of bounds. If he has is in bounds when he catches the football then he caught it and it is a completed catch. If the player goes out of bounds and comes back in bounds and catches the football it is still an incomplete pass. However, if he was knocked out of bounds or if the ball was tipped, it may be a completed pass. The rules keep changing at all levels of the game.
No. He would be assessed a 'delay of game' foul and the appropriate penalty given.
who ever was the last person to touch the ball before it hits the floor out of bounds or if the person out of bounds catches it the other team gets it
The ball is not "out of bounds" unless the ball or the player who possesses it touches the ground in an out of bounds area. So in the case where the ball is in flight over the sideline, and a player who is inbounds catches it and demonstrates control before stepping out, the pass is complete.
When a quarterback throws to an receiver or anyone on offense eligible on then the yards thrown from where the ball was placed and the offense player catches and extends the play until he Is tackled out of bounds or scores
No. The first foot has to be in bounds.
If they are inbounds when they catch the ball, it is okay. Catching it out of bounds doesn't count, even if you were pushed. And if you caught it inbounds, but were pushed out of bounds before your feet came down, it can be ruled as a legal catch.
If the receiver is forced out of bounds by a defender and immediately returns to the field of play, then yes, he can legally catch the ball. If he runs out of bounds voluntarily, then he cannot be the first person to touch the ball.
Before the 08-09 season, this would be considered a catch. The rules have changed this year and unless the player gets both feet inbounds, it is not a catch. Good rule change IMO as the offense has too many rules in their favor already.
