* Kicked balls are usually easy to spot, as defenders will often kick out their legs to try to deflect a pass. But it is important to remember that a kicked ball is reserved for violations that are done on purpose. This means that if a offensive player throws the ball into the leg of a defensive player who is stationary, it should not be a kick ball.When a ball is accidentally hit off of someone's leg, it is a live ball and no whistles should be blown.
