In the years I've been shooting and watching high school sports, I've never heard of a team called the Dragons, have you? That all changed when I ventured over to Sacramento Charter High School to check out the Dragons against the Woodside Wildcats. Saturday game, scorching heat, shitty 1pm light...just how I like it. The Wildcats travelled all the way from a small town somewhere between San Francisco and San Jose to take the W on the Dragons well manicured and neatly painted football field.
A Wildcat player repeatedly tapped the top of his helmet signaling his need for a substitution. One of his coaches yelled, "Stay in the game! If you're tired, you can rest on the ride home!" How's that for motivation. Shout out to long bus trips back home after wins. Much more enjoyable than after losses.
