Smaller? You mean wider? (wider is a smaller F# aka, less in focus)
Because of the wide angle you are shooting though, you are going to get a lot in focus anyway, Most people shoot sports with Telephoto lenses (because they can't get close to the action) I like wide angle, But either or is good IMO (grass is always greener, When your stuck far away you would love to be up close etc.etc.)
I like the first shot thats my fav, The 3rd is too busy with background stuff, and since you can't see the Guys face you kind of focus less on him (and notice the fence and whatnot)
