My son has been playing organized youth football since he was six years old. He will be entering high school in the fall and therefore will be ineligible to play anymore at the youth level. Last Saturday was the finale of his youth days, with him playing in the spring season championship game. His team was undefeated for the spring season and also won the championship game 27-0. My son plays right tackle on offense. Here are a few pix from a couple of this seasons games. All images taken with my good old, long in the tooth, but still reliable D200:

1. This is my son. His team was kneeling, respectfully, while the other team's players were announced

3. OK, you tell me, who is getting the better of whom in this shot...? The mom of the boy in
the blue jersey seems to think her son got the better of mine. Hmmmmmm......

8. "The Trauma Unit"...thats the nickname of his partners in crime, the offensive line. At 250lbs, my son is the lightest on the line. That line causes paaaaain!!!!

10. Its not the greatest image, but even though my boy mainly plays offense, he still LOVES to tackle.
I didn't realize the coach had sent him in on special teams for the kickoff, but I grabbed camera just in time to get him making his last tackle at the youth level. He wouldn't let me post these pix unless I included this one.

Youth ball was great, but I see even greater things for him in high school. I can't wait!!

yeah, that D200 just keeps on clicking right along. High ISO is definitely not its cup of tea...so i don't even really try to go there with it. But keep the setting relatively low and its definitely in its sweet spot. I been eyeballing that D500, just don't have the funds to get it.

I appreciate the comment, William, Thanks. Not too sure I understand your question though. Can you clarify it for me??

6'2"; 250 lbs; just going in to High school---what on earth are you feeding him? :D
Great shooting, and it goes to show it's the person behind the camera and not the camera that makes great pictures!

Nick, I'm telling ya, its like a prehistoric caveman battle for survival over food at my house. I swear if he wasn't my son, I'd have to kill him just so i can get a scrap of food for my own stomach. And thank goodness my younger son doesn't eat like his big brother....I'd definitely have to stand guard at the refrigerator then!! (LOL)
Thanks for the comments on the photos...i really appreciate it!
