Football fluctuates back and forth between basketball as my favorite sport to shoot. Night football is dead last on that list. Friday night lights might be fun for some but not for me. Unless of course Coach Taylor is on the sidelines. Anyway, during their homecoming game, the Dunbar Crimson Tide beat the Roosevelt Rough Riders 40-0. Tough break.
Everywhere Gonzaga goes, a sea of purple follows. Last Saturday, the sea of purple drowned the Archbishop Carroll Lions in a 42-22 victory that was not nearly as close as the score may or may not indicate. Stanford commit and Gonzaga QB Kevin Hogan threw the ball all over the place and even ran for a 70+ yard touchdown scramble in the win. Read about on DCSportsFan here. Shout out to the National Archives and Records building which casts a huge shadow over half of the football field around 2pm. One second they're in the shade, the next they're in the sun.
Ok, near RFK Stadium. Gonzaga College High School plays their soccer home games at the auxiliary fields of RFK, probably where some derivative versions of DC United hold practice. The actual game was second place to the great in your face setting sun that was just hitting the field at the right angle. O'Connell took a 5-0 loss to Gonzaga on this beautiful day. Shout out to headers but not to possible concussions.
About a week ago I photographed the Catholic University football team during their homecoming match up against Hampden-Sydney. The game kicked off an hour after high noon, so the light was definitely not in my favor. But what the game lacked in light, it made up for in action. The Cardinals ended up losing a 35-27 shootout (read about it here) but tons of people packed the tiny college stadium. I was impressed. Shout out to Division III football.
