Knox College Football Scrimmage

I wanted to post a few exclamation points on the end of that title.

On Friday I covered my first Friday Night Lights game (HS football) for The Galesburg Register-Mail and on Saturday I covered a scrimmage of the Knox College team and their first game is on next Saturday. First is my best shot from Friday during the Knoxville HS vs. BPCA HS. It was fun and I wish I could have stayed the whole game, but deadlines called and I couldn’t stay for very long.

Next is a few of my best shots from Saturday. I changed things up and shot from the top of the press box and with a 50mm at times thought the game. It gave me some nice angled and I didn’t worry too much to get action shots, and tried to work on sideline shots. While most of these are action I was trying to get comfortable walking through the team’s sideline and getting shots without players giving me weird looks. Eventually they will start to ignore me, I hope.

Next up men’s soccer soccer scrimmage today, if the weather clears up.

Let me know what you think of the shots. Thanks.
