Some more.....On #9 This is the first play from scrimmage from a first year program. The school has been in existence for around 100 years and this is their first year to have football. A true freshman at quarterback rolls out and completes a pass for the first in school history.
This kid was featured here in Chattanooga on the local TV stations. He has down syndrome, but has never let that stop him. I have shot him since his peewee/tball years at the local park that I cover. These are just a few I got of his 80 yard TD run with 8 sec to go in the game. The team was winning 21-0 and when a time out was called with a few sec left it seemed odd. I noticed the 2 coaches talking and seen Austin going in the game and figured out what was about to happen.
I have seen these types of things on TV, but when you are there to watch and capture the moment, it truly is a tear jerker.
Looks like you are getting up to speed pretty quickly. Glad to know the football season is upon us again. Check the horizons on a couple of them (it may be an illusion based on field angle, but 5 & 6 look skewed to me...)
Really love the last two photos in your second set. Just dynamite raw emotion. Well done.
