Pop Warner Snow Bowl at Mackay Stadium at UNR!!

Yep, it was COLD… but not as bad as the day before!  What a treat for the kids, to play their championship football games on the turf at UNR!  And they were all good games!  Here’s some action from the day.  Check out a lot more in the galleries for the leagues that played… which were…

Carson Pop Warner

Douglas Pop Warner

Reno Pop Warner

South Tahoe Pop Warner

Sparks Pop Warner

Apparently there were two teams that came into AND left the Championship game having never been scored on… yes, that also means never lost a game either… that’s amazing in youth sports!

Just because they’re “littler” guys doesn’t mean the bodies weren’t flyin’! 🙂Love getting in that face mask and seeing those focused eyes…I’ve been photographing Trey for the last few years… never had it so difficult as this season… The Douglas Unlimited team is one of those never been scored on teams… headed for Florida in two weeks… They run an offense that certainly fits their strengths (they’re BIG kids… let me say that again… they’re BIG…) but this new offense is a lot more running and less of Trey opening up for a pass for me to sneak some shots… makes it tough.  Good luck in Florida boys!

2012 South Tahoe Pop Warner Pee Wee vs. Carson

I made the journey up to South Tahoe High School last night for the South Tahoe Pop Warner vs. Carson Pop Warner Pee Wee game… Under the lights at Tahoe’s new football stadium.  I haven’t shot there since they put the lights in… and I have to say, they did a great job with the lights!  The best that I shoot under for outdoor at night!  Glad “newer is better”!

Here are a few shots, check the rest out in the galleries for the leagues either at the side menu or under photo galleries.  Thanks for looking!

Tahoe’s offense is very hard to shoot… I’m not sure what the scheme is called, I called it the wedge… but it’s a lot of deception (me included…) and hard to see where the ball is sometimes… and it’s a lot of running plays.  Makes it tough to get many clear shots of the kids isolated.

Compare these images to the one’s from Douglas the night before… it’s DARK at Douglas… and black on black doesn’t help! 🙂

High School Soccer, Soccer, Volleyball, Football and Soccer coming up this week! A busy one with about 1/2 of the seasons in the record books!  See you out at the field or court!

2012 Carson Pop Warner & Douglas Pop Warner…

My first week of being able to get out to some Pop Warner action today… it’s always amazing to see the kids… the next year, how much they grow each year is really amazing!

Here are just a few shots from today’s action.  Check out the galleries under current events or under photo galleries.

I love this!  Just one of those “moments” of the game…I love seeing into the face mask!  Love to see those eyes…

These boys are getting BIG!!  Two of the Douglas Unlimited team here… they cruised to a win over Carson.
