Under threatening skies, the Pioneers battled the Blue Jays from Washington High School. High School Football is a great sport to photograph, especially when the coaches allow you out on the field during warmups. That's my favorite time, when you can get close up to the action. There is great intensity in the eyes of the players as the focus and prepare for battle. This game was especially fun, because several of my students were playing. Edward, Rasheed and Andre are smart, hardworking, and considerate kids and you can't help but pull for them.
The halftime show featured the JV Pommies who did an outstanding job. Mykel, Maggie, and Rachel are also students of mine, and amazing kids. They do an fantastic job everyday in the classroom so it was good to finally see them do their thing! Bravo!!
Brad, who is the Youth Director at Greentree Church was there with his son. As you can see in the final picture, I think it's safe to say the "Cutest Future Pioneer" contest is over. . .
