Dragged

One Monday way back when I was on my JV football team, we reviewed a film of the previous Friday’s game. If I remember the game, we won handily, but on one kickoff the opposing receiver broke several tackles and was on his way to an open field and a potential touchdown. Only one of […]

Field heat

(Camera: Nikon D300. Lens: Nikkor 300mm. Exposure: 1/2000th sec. @ f/ 5.6. ISO: 200) Those artificial turfs many high schools are going to for their football fields are truly marvels.
