my friend says that by definition you can't catch something unless it was thrown and kick offs are not thrown. so instead you have to pick it up and sure hands will work on it, is he right? in this situation the kickoff was landing on a player.


if a kick off lands on a guy can I attempt to "catch" it before my turn begins?

Yup, plain and simple, what else would it do? Bonk you on the head?

You Catch a bouncing ball, and that's not thrown.

Your friend is wrong, plain and simple.

I'd remind you all this is the Newbies section of the forum. As such questions - no matter how silly or obvious the answer - should be answered simply and accurately and without denigrating the OP.
