Best of 2011: Sports
This was an awesome year as far as sports shooting went. Had a lot of great opportunities during football season and I’m pretty sad its coming to end in a few weeks.
This football season alone I shot two Big Ten games (Michigan-Illinois and Minnesota-Northwestern),shot the entire Northern Illinois season, which produced the Huskies’ first Mid-American Conference Championship since 1983. Personally, I’ve waited seven years to see that victory.
Basketball season around DeKalb is generally pretty unexciting but Kim Davis gave me one of my favorite shots of the year during a loose ball scrum.
I also shot IESA State Wrestling for the Free Press in Wilmington and produced another one of my favorite shots in the 65-pound title match.
Overall a great year for my sports images. Hope you enjoy them. Sure there’s more I could post too. Looking forward to 2012.
