D.J. Harvey is a 6-6 high school sensation at traditional Washington powerhouse DeMatha Catholic, and as Keith Jackson used to say, "He's ooonnnllly a soph-o-more!"
Harvey, who already has big-time college programs interested, nearly knocked himself out in a recent game when he jumped so high trying to block a shot that his head crashed into the backboard.
The play occurred during DeMatha's 51-47 win against St. John's on Dec. 3. It is just starting to make the rounds on the Internet as photographer Brian Kapur realized he had captured the moment of impact:
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
Looks like this is a classic case of a player being so good that he can only stop himself.
