Carrying his team — and two dodgeballs

A young player at BEACON’s 27th annual Dodgeball tournament, the last standing on his team, takes a hit to the head as he tries to wrangle two other dodgeballs for a mighty throw. Headshots did not count at the tournament, so the boy stayed in to throw one of the adults on the opposing team out. Ultimately, he was unable to carry his team to victory that round.
