i like number nine, great action, but we need to see more facial expressions. It is hard with a helmet on but it is still very crucial.

I like your crops, the RB especially.
Good colors and great sharpness.
10 has alot of action, I would have liked it to be wider, or narrower, but I'm not sure :(

The colors are really bright without looking over-saturated, I really like it. I gotta try to emulate it in my work!

These seem very tight, are they cropped? Were you using another lens other than
in your profile ( 70-200 ). You must have been right on the field. Great colors and
sharpness.

The shots look good. My suggestion is delete pics of players with their back turned to the camera.

Yeah, the pictures turned out great. Hard to say which one is the best. :)

I thnk the colors are great, the pictures aren't blurry, nice action shots. You have a lot of shots from the back, May try switching sides of the field. I also think the faces are too dark. Don't know if it is possible to expose the shot longer to get the face without causing the shot to go blurry.

The pictures are really great in detail but like what cargo123 says, the back shots may need a raincheck. I got that same type of feedback when I did a paintball tournament. Other than that. Great series!

Try overexposing on your camera's meter by 1/3-2/3. That should lighten it up under the facemask a bit without blowing everything else out.

These are very nice shots that capture good action! One thing to keep in mind, as others have mentioned, you have to get faces. Getting an athlete from the back does nothing.

You've got good tight shots with great color! Keep it up and keep posting more on here!
