2017 High School Football, Carson High vs. Reno High, September 1, 2017

After road trips for nearly every Northern Nevada high school football teams last week, this week has nearly everyone back in the area and playing cross league opponents… Carson hosted Reno tonight…

Reno has some fire power this year… Brandon Kaho is the talk of the league right now it seems, what’s his decision regarding college going to be is what’s on a lot of people’s minds… great for him to have some impressive options for college!  He gave me a great shot tonight so I’m pleased!  Check it out below…

Carson is entering the season with some rookie players at key positions… the big one is quarterback… Daniel Morrison (who filled in last year for the injured Jace Keema…) was expected to lead the team this year but a re-injury of his knee will have him out for the season so Blake Menzel will be looked upon to lead the team with Johnathan Laplante, who was brought up from the JV team recently will also be seeing some reps, as he did tonight… tough position to be in for Carson but that’s high school sports, we’ll see who steps up! 🙂

On to the photos from tonight… (check out more in the galleries… here…)

Going with the ball squish on the bat! Almost doesn’t look real to me!  The Junior Tournament started Wednesday… this was from the Reno American vs. Truckee-North Tahoe (TNT) game yesterday.

The 2017 Nevada District 1 All Star Tournament… Day 4

OK, this story is just too good not to share!  I’m in a unique position, I spend a large part of the tournament kneeling in front of the dugouts on all the fields… so I get to hear a lot of what goes on with the kids.  Well, on Saturday… as this fella’s running out to bat, someone in the dugout yells, “… I’ll give you 10 bucks if you hit a home run!”… so out he trots to the dish… I believe the other team was making a pitching change so the 3rd base coach was chatting with him and very distinctly (as you can see in the photo…) where he wanted him to drive the ball… 🙂

Up to the plate, thank you very much, I’ll just go yard with that one!  … and with a  huge smile (you’ll have to look that photo up in the gallery…) the first words he says when he returns from his journey around the bases… “… you owe me 10 bucks!” 🙂

The 2017 Nevada District 1 All Star Tournament… Day 3

Sorry, got a little behind with Photo of the Day… Friday night’s 7:30 game brought me my photo of the day… This is my 11th year shooting all star tournaments, so I’ve seen a lot of things out here.  I wanted to give this fella a shout out for his performance on Friday night.

When you walk up to a field with the 12’s you see a full range of sizes, some kids have hit that growth spurt and others haven’t… but baseball is a sport that doesn’t require a particular physique… at the beginning of the game, you can always kinda hear the hushed chatter of the kids making “impressions” of the pitchers that are warming up… these days a lot of these kids are playing each other in travel ball tournaments so sometimes they know each other…

So… I wanted to give a shout out to Mr. Davis.  He’s not 6 foot, 220 lbs. but at the end of the game, he was STILL on the mound for Reno American with the win.  Bravo for doing your job!
