My most embarrassing moment or thing that ever happened to me: During a very cold night game my high school senior year, I had the flu so my mouth and nose were really congested. I went up hard for a ball, and as I headed it, I grunted really loud, except my mouth was closed. So, the grunt actually came out of my nose and a huge snot rocket landed on the shoulder of the girl I was marking. Oh well, she gave me extra space the rest of the match.
