are you ready for some football?

For me, fall means football. An overload of football. High School football on Friday, KU football on Saturday, and the Chiefs on Sunday. But this year - the Chiefs suck and KU is in an ugly tailspin. So, thank goodness for the Free State Firebirds. After a disappointing 1-2 start - Free State rallied back and have made it to the 6A State Semifinals this Friday. Last Friday FSHS beat Kansas powerhouse Olathe North 10-6 (first time in school history) in a cold, blustery, defensive battle. It's so great to see a group of young men overcome adversity, get better each week, and then get it done against a bigger, faster, more athletic team. And what makes it even better is my son Connor is one of those young men. The semi-final game against Blue Valley should be a doozy. The game is this coming Friday at Blue Valley at 7:00 PM.

For whatever reason, I didn't shoot as many football games this year. But I did get some keepers from the games I shot. Here are a couple shots of Connor from several JV games (he plays Varsity + JV).

Sweet shots Doug. I do believe you could shoot anything.

I kept seeing you at FS games without a camera, and got worried you'd given up ;) Of course I didn't have mine with me either so I couldn't exactly point it out at the time :P
