There’s a group challenge that’s somewhat popular among soccer teams, and it goes like this: One player stands surrounded by teammates, who are seated. The standing player heads the ball to each teammate, one by one. Each teammate then heads the ball back. Once the standing player has done this with each and every teammate without the ball touching the ground once, the final step is heading the ball into a bin.
It’s not easy. It requires intense concentration and seamless togetherness. And it recently led to one fantastic Facebook video from the Syracuse men’s soccer team.
Watch above as the Syracuse men’s soccer players, one by one, complete the challenge. As the center star works his way around the circle and closer to the bin, tension builds. You just might feel a tightness building in your chest.
Meanwhile, the explosion of collective joy that follows just might make your day.
