In football, I would say a wide receiver.
Yes, though this is not usually seen often due to the punt receiver's focus being only on catching the ball.
no the receiver can not pass the ball after catching it. hence the name "receiver" he only receives passes and does not throw them Actually the answer above is wrong, if say the quarterback throws the ball backwards or laterally then the receiver can then throw the ball. There is no rule on WHO throws the ball, only that there is one forward pass per play and it must come from behind the line of scrimmage.
There are two types of interference in football. Defensive pass interference is when a defender covering a receiver touches and prevents a receiver from catching a ball which he could have caught. Offensive pass interference is when an offensive player prevents a defensive player from intercepting the ball by touching or pushing him in any type of way to get him away from the football.
by catching it...
a receiver is a person that catches the football
probably wide receiver because they are in charge of catching a throw from the quarterback and running with it to try and get a touchdown so yeah they have to be really fast. like a new England patriots' wide receiver wes welker watch him sometime. that's about how fast a wide receiver should be
goes out for passes
Clark is a wide receiver at wayzata high school with a 4.6 second 40 he is unstoppable on the football field. He also has some of the best catching abillities in the state of minnesota
The receiver plays multiple roles in football. The first role is catching the ball when it is thrown anywhere near him, whether it is a good or bad pass. The second role is to block for the runner or for a receiver after the ball is caught. The third role is being a decoy, running a route that is meant to pull defenders away from another receiver that is running a primary route.
Fair catch interference.
