Liberos are a rare breed. They're athletes willing to sacrifice their chance at glory to do the team's dirty work. They're scrappy, they're tenacious, they're quick.

You know you're a libero if these things ring a bell for you.

You know how to play it off when you get hit in the face.

You hate having to replace your lucky kneepads.

You always steal your teammates' balls in serve receive.

You love getting a chance to swing in warmups to prove that you can hit too!

You're so used to hanging out with giants, you're shocked when you realize you're actually an average-sized person.

Your teammates are always getting stopped and asked what sport they play, and you're like:

You don't take kindly to the middle taking your free ball.

People are constantly asking you why you wear a different colored jersey.

But you secretly love the attention.

You hate it when the other team avoids serving at you.

You live for that feeling of digging the other team's best hitter.
