Spike To The Face (Video)

spike to the faceHe bumped when he should have set.  The result was a mouth full of leather.  Hopefully next time he will remember to keep his hands up.

That was the scene during a youth volleyball game, and according to the YouTube description, the kid taking the ball to the face had to leave the game.  No surprise there.   Although, one could argue that the play should have been stopped before even getting to this point.  Just prior to catching a spike with his nose, the same kid appears to hit the ball twice, consecutively.  I guess that’s what you get for breaking the rules.

Okay, so maybe we have to somewhat feel for the poor kid, but at least he had a chance to see the ball coming.  Others have not been so fortunate.
