The football season came to a close on Saturday, December 1. It was a very long, but rewarding season. The team started conditioning on January 30 at 5:50 AM and continued training every morning until late November. This season was special to me for many reasons, the biggest being that it was my youngest son's last season in high school.
On the morning of 12/10, the light started to change dramatically. By mid morning a huge smoke cloud covered the whole area.
Well the season came to an end on Friday night with a 1 point loss to Center High School. I felt terrible for the boys.
I’m so excited to have football back! Along with photography, fitness has been another huge part of my life. This year I was asked to help with strength training for my son's varsity football team. I grew up in the gym starting at age 13, picking up weights for a membership and am still there several times a week. So, I was very happy to help the team and share some of my experience. It's funny, because when I was in high school and training for football, we used medicine balls, climbing ropes, and pushed my friend's truck in a parking lot. Fast forward to today and we are using the same stuff, except we switched the truck for a sled.
Another football season has come and gone. My youngest, Ryan (#32) is a sophomore and on the JV team, who won the league with a 10 and 0 record. My oldest son, Ethan (#40) is a senior on Varsity. Varsity was 3 and 7, which made for a tough season.
Had a wonderful trip to Oregon with the family. It was the perfect opportunity to relax and make some pictures. Here's just a sampling.
I'm always trying to look at things in a different way. I've shot fireworks in the years past, with some success. This year I wanted to look at the reaction of family and just be a little looser in my style.
