This weekend was my first paid football gig of the season. I travelled to Rice in Houston for Old Dominion’s first football game as a C-USA team – and they got the current C-USA champs at home. Not the most favorable of conditions. ODU certainly rose to the occasion, however, winning 45-42 on a last second field goal. Overall, a great game with plenty of action and nice weather.
I find that my timing improves if I only have to focus on one team – as opposed to working for USA Today Sports, when I am covering the event. That little bit of extra stress feeling like I have to cover both sides of the ball makes all the difference. In all, I am very pleased with the images I made this weekend. I’m looking forward to more opportunities to do the same this season.
