  1. I had the opportunity to go to Michie Stadium at the West Point Military academy and shoot the West Point JV vs East Coast Prep football game. A lot of tradition there!!

  2. Good stuff. I am amazed at how well you managed to get the whites of their eyes in just about every shot! Bravo Bill.

    I like that you can see the eyes in most every photo.
     
  7. Excellent job with those photos. I attended a game there in the early 80’s, it’s quite an event.

    Good stuff.
     
  9. Thanks Everybody!!
    Nick/Brad- yes I was able to get the eyes in all of these posted but there were plenty that weren't quite as good. I took over 300 shots (2018 East Coast Prep vs West Point ) that day and these were my favorites.

    Thanks Karen and Thanks to your Husband for his service

    Thanks Randy and Chris.

    Fred- Army was just too strong and to deep. East coast had a roster of only 32 compared to West Points 85. Army won 48-12

    Thanks Rick- Great place to catch a game!! My Son played for Temple and they played there two years ago. Temple lost a heart breaker in Overtime with a field goal attempt that clanged off the left upright.

    Thanks Russ
     
  10. Awesome collection. #8 is a classic shot.
     
  11. Very well done...the lighting and sharpness of these photographs are impressive.

  12. Thanks Bobby and Glenn. I got lucky with a 2 p.m. game time and a slightly overcast sky which resulted in good lighting.
