High School Blooper: Player Jumps Too High And Nails Head On Backboard
High School Basketball Player D.J. Harvey from DeMatha Catholic paid the price for his athleticism: the 6’4″ sophomore from Hyattsville, Md., used his tremendous ability to block a shot. Unfortunately, he soon realized that he jumped too high and smashed his head against the backboard.
Didn’t even realize I captured this crazy moment from the @demathacatholic vs @stjohnschs game a few weeks back. Credit coach @mjhoops3 for spotting it! Cause I didn’t realize it had it (problem w editing a lot… Also really glad I didn’t accidentally delete )DJ Harvey has such good hops that he headbutted the backboard #skywalker #ballislife #hoops #basketball #bball #bigair #ouch #sports #wow #dmv #baller #bucket #block A photo posted by @bkapur22 on
