It's my practice to shoot punts and kicks because sometimes this happens.

I knew this player sells out for extra point tries.  (I have shot him before. I asked him about it at a previous game. He said, "That is my specialty."

This is a state championship game. I shot the spot where the block could happen. It all came together.

Fantastic

Thanks, Dennis.

Yes, sports front.

 

Congratulations.  Do you keep these? I got on the front page of the sports section once, I had a special page printed so I could frame it.  I have yet to frame it, but it is on my bucket list of things to do.

 

I would bet your "trophy wall" is something to see!

Actually, they are using for the newspaper front. This is sports front.

In my job, it is expected that I produce a photo for sports front every week. Sometimes it occurs in multiple papers. 

Is not easy doing this. My satisfaction is when I go on the hunt and I GET that photo. Before it hits print, it goes through two people and sometimes they see different. That's just the way it is.

But, I am happy you are excited about it. 8-)
