2013 NIAA Varsity Football… Double Duty October 24, 2013

Wow is about all I can say for the Sierra League NIAA Division 1 football season!  With Division 1 split into two leagues and “league” play coming the last half of the season you really never know what the “pre-season” tea leaves might tell you… and this year, I don’t think ANYONE’S prediction was as wild as what we’ve seen this year!

This year I advertised in the Reno Gazette Journal’s Football Preview “magazine”… the lead off article was “Who will step from the shadows”… and at the time I thought that was a very appropriate lead… I had the same thoughts myself, in my mind there wasn’t any one player that was expected to create a significant “problem” for any opponent as we’ve seen in past years… with one league game week left we’ve got quite a situation that has developed in the Sierra League….

A big Congratulations to the Carson Senators for their League Championship.  I know they have unfinished business and there will be a lot of pressure this week to continue their success… Carson/Douglas this week!

So this past Thursday night I made an attempt to try double duty, a first half at one school and the second half at another… not my normal style but I gave it a try… I started at Galena… Here are two from that game…

I’ve grown to like the turf at most of the high school fields but the natural grass at Galena offers some cool things with flying grass… not sure the grass coming up here is from Ben (… sorry Ben…) but it’s something you don’t get to see on the turf. 🙂131024_instaimage_Galena High Football_Ben Barnard Touchdown… and I “caught” this one too! 131024_instaimage_Galena High Football_CatchAt halftime, with info from my “sources” (thanks!!) I headed over to Manogue where Carson was driving their season to the Championship!  Here’s some of the shots I got in the second half of the Carson Manogue game…

Here are three images from Chase Blueberg’s touchdown… no doubt he wanted this one! 🙂131024_Carson High Football_Blueberg Touchdown131024_Carson High Football_Blueberg Touchdown2 131024_Carson High Football_Blueberg Touchdown3… Nevin doing a little dance!
