Photographer tries to catch football, gets hit right in the face

Sunday September 25th, 2016

Think you’re having a bad day? It’s not as bad as the one this photographer at the Auburn–LSU game is having.

Ashley Ward, who works for the university, got down on two knees to try and grab a kickoff that sailed over the end zone in the third quarter of the game, and caught a face full of football.

Thankfully, she’s alright, and definitely is not amused by the jokes that she was offered a scholarship to play at Georgia.


UPDATE (9:50 p.m. ET): Oh hell yeah, we’ve got a better angle.
