2014 NIAA Northern Region Semifinal Football, Carson vs. Reno

I mentioned to someone today that I’m seeing a fire in the belly of these boys that I’ve not seen during my previous six years shooting Carson High Football…

Carson has given up 19 points in FIVE games, all of which were first team offense (opponents) against second team defense… 7 against Douglas, 6 against McQueen and 6 against Reno tonight… October 17th was the last points the first team defense gave up points… against Manogue… They’re on a roll to say the least!

I felt before the game that tonight would be another lopsided score… a lot of nervous parents around, wondering if it would be a close game… NOPE!  Carson got off to a fast start and coasted to the Regional Championship next weekend against Reed.

Here are some photos from the night.

NIAA Northern Region Football First Round Playoffs, Carson vs. McQueen

Well… what can I say?  Carson showed up to play and went about their business tonight…  The fellas were talking on the sidelines about how many quarters it’s been since the starting defense has been scored on… Carson Varsity football has only given up 13 points in the last four games, all in the 4th quarter of games where they had a 42 point lead before they gave up the points with the first team defense on the sidelines.

Carson will host Reno and Reed will host Hug (who previously beat Reed…) next week in the Regional Semifinal games.

Here are a few photos from the evening.

A note to a very special friend…

Kyme… THANK YOU.  Enjoy tonight… I’m sorry I cannot be there.  I know the journey is not over but the road’s been fun, I feel very lucky to have been able to try to capture some of it for you, Eddie, Austin and of course Grandma.  You’ve been very good to me and my family and I will forever be grateful.
