I shot NIU vs Wisconsin at Solider Field in Chicago today. Awesome experience to start with.
The No. 7 Badgers trounced the Huskies 49-7 behind Heisman candidate Russell Wilson.
I’ll have a lot more photos to post here on the other outlets soon. For now I leave with you one of my favorites that almost got tossed aside.
Defensive end Zach Anderson is making a stop on Wisconsin running back Jeffrey Lewis. Nothing exciting photo-wise, until…
I noticed linebacker Pat Schiller doing a contortionist impression at the bottom of the pile. Thankfully he wasn’t hurt but if you ever wondered how football players get neck injuries, I give you Exhibit A.
Guess it also serves as a metaphor for the day…
