Not sure if you guys caught this game on ESPN on Monday, but 2 local highschools battled it out on a rare DAYTIME game. Highschool football during the day?!

It was a huge defensive battle with not too much action in the air.

1) This will probably look good as a black and white

2)

3) Like I said huge defensive battle

4) Sucks that I missed part of the guy on the ground

I watched most of that game. #1 on Spanish Fort was impressive. Funny that the two schools are only 3-4 miles apart, yet this was the first time they played against each other. Great shots! Love that first one and agree that it would look cool in b&w. Where did they say #9 on Spanish Fort was going to attend college? Was it Alabama?

I'm not really sure. To be honest, I didn't really follow the game while I was out there. Too busy shooting and then finding water. Drank 2 full bottles of water and 2 bottles of gatorade.

I did read that one guy one Spanish Fort's team was being recruited by Nebraska. May have been him.

nice series #1 and #4 are sweet... as for #4 despite missing part of the guy on the ground you got the guy in the air at a really strange angle, looks like he is sliding into 2nd, only elevated.

Very nice gallery. High school football during the day is great. No, I wouldn't want it to move totally to daytime but having a few marquee games in the day is wonderful, especially for playoffs when it is cold and the days are very short.

Great set! I miss seeing that look in #2 just before making the tackle.
