QB/WR Jake: Part III

Five years ago while living in Washington DC, I shot an awful lot of high school sports (shout out to DCSportsFan). Depending on what season it was, I was shooting a game almost daily and had visited many different high school athletic fields and gymnasiums in the DMV. Sometime in October 2009 a parent reached out to me to photograph her son, Jake, who was the starting quarterback of the Maret Frogs. The first game I shot was pretty much played in a monsoon but the second game had better weather and a Maret victory.

Fast forward to October 2014 where I am contacted by the same parent with a similar request. She wants me to photograph Jake again, but this time he's a WR at Kenyon College in Ohio. Pretty cool right? Right?! I traveled to Ohio, where the weather was just a little bit cooler, to photograph Jake play the Allegheny Gators. Fun Fact: Kenyon just ended the season with a 1-9 record...guess who their one win came against? I'll give you a hint, it rhymes with Ballegheny Tators. I am the good luck charm.

So here is a very superficial visual view of Jake's senior years of high school and college football, respectively. Big shout out to Jake and his family and smaller shout out to Homage, where I finally made a pilgrimage.
