College Volleyball Player Takes Spike to the Face (Video + GIF)

volleyball spike to face

I’ve always thought volleyball was kind of an underrated sport. Or at least the indoor variety. I mean, what’s not to like? It’s extremely fast-paced and requires serious athleticism. Plus, every once in a while you get to see somebody get spiked in the face.

Today that somebody is a setter for the Hannibal Lagrange College (MO) men’s volleyball team. At a match against Cairn University (PA) on March 3, Cairn outside hitter Ryan Garven absolutely crushed a spike that hit the Hannibal player square in the face.

It looked like the kid got taken out by a sniper.

Here’s the video:

And, in case you just want to watch this kid get hit in the face over, and over, and over again, here’s the GIF:
