Admit it, you laughed when you saw the video. It’s human nature.
Thankfully, it appears as though the photographer who took a football to the face after attempting to catch a kickoff that sailed through the end zone during the LSU-Auburn game on Saturday appears to be OK.
She gave an interview with WBRC in the moments after her failed attempt to catch the ball.

Her name is Ashley Ward, and she’s a photographer for Auburn athletics.
Give her this much: It was a bold decision to step up and try to make the play. Perhaps she’ll learn from her mistake this time and catch the next one. Or, she may just avoid it altogether.
