Notre Dame QB Malik Zaire Hits Somebody In Face With Ball (Video)


We know about baseballs and hockey pucks, but what about footballs? Notre Dame’s Malik Zaire prooves footballs can hurt people too.

When heading to the old baseball park, mitts need to be brought for the obvious reason: you may just find yourself face-to-face with a baseball.

These souvenirs are plentiful across all big league parks.

In the National Hockey League, the crowd often itself in a similar situation (although the netting behind the goals has drastically cut down on that).

At a football game, footballs usually don’t come at you fast and furious. That it, unless, you’re walking the Texas Longhorn sideline.

Check out the video above. This unknown Texas staff member was smacked squarely in the face by a Malik Zaire fastball.


This one happened for all the world to see as Texas hosts Brian Kelly and his Notre Dame Fighting Irish in Week 1 of the College Football season. Currently, the Longhorns hold a 28-14 lead just one play into the second half.
