I'm sure we have all done this. You point your toe in front of the ball and it strikes it and rolls up the leg so it can be caught. Maybe you had to be there. All I know is it was done intentionally and it struck not only his foot but the leg as well and everyone in the gym besides the kid knew he messed up. I am pretty sure he was informed afterward.
