Can You Fly a Football Player?

I promised to put up some pictures I took of the Edison High School vs. Newport Harbor game (56-22 Edison Freshman). To my surprise I caught the PERFECT shot! My son, Elijah, was returning a punt, when he juked this kid. In a last attempt to tackle him, the kid reached out grabbed hold of his belt and I captured THIS...

The Answer: YES. Elijah Herrera flew a football player like a kite!LOL!

Here's how his run progressed...





The other team couldn't bring him down...but he finally tripped to end the great run.

Anyways...I LOVE that first kite flying shot. I told him, "It looks like you're running so fast that you lifted him off the ground." I think I'm going to blow it up to a poster size and surprise him with it.

Here is his Touchdown run later in the game...






I was really happy with all of my pictures this week. I caught a bunch of shots in mid air of a lot of the players. The team is going to be really excited.

I'm such a perfectionist...I've been pretty upset with my shots the last few weeks. FINALLY some decent ones.

SIDE NOTE: VARSITY & J.V. WON TOO!

I LOVE football season! That first one is an amazing shot! Seriously! I would definitely blow it up and frame it. Set it out somewhere so that your son's football moment was not only captured perfectly but now displayed perfectly!
