A couple weeks after I took photos of our high school’s girls’ basketball team, it was time to snap a few of the boys. Hey, I’m nothing if not an equal-opportunity action photographer!
The lights still were bright, thank goodness. I stood at about the same spots on the walkway and tried to keep up with the elevated speed of play.
Our opponent was our school’s arch rival as well as one of the top teams in the entire state of Texas. They could go all the way and win the title!
Even though our guys clearly were outmanned and ultimately outgunned, they never lost their spirit and motivation.
No team has ever won a game by just rolling over and giving up. Our boys played hard until the final buzzer.
It’s hard not to be pushed to do your best as a photographer when your subjects are playing their hearts out. Thanks, guys!
