One-handed catch

From EverybodyWiki Bios & Wiki

A ˈˈˈone-handed catchˈˈˈ is made when a player of a sport catches the ball with just one hand, when normally it is much easier to catch with two hands.

Notable instances[edit]

  • In 2014 Odell Beckham Jr. made a one-handed touchdown reception hailed as the "catch of the year", with Cris Collinsworth, Tony Dungy, Victor Cruz and LeBron James all saying that it was one of the best catches ever.[1][2][3][4][5] Beckham made this catch despite a pass interference penalty called on Dallas cornerback Brandon Carr while diving backwards with full extension of his right hand using only three fingers.
  • Shaquem Griffin, one handed football player for the Central Florida Knights


  • Kwik cricket rules in Australia and New Zealand say that one-handed catch results in the dismissal of the entire team, and rather than plastic cones a nearby landmark is used as a theoretical boundary.
