Are You Ready for Spring Football?

There’s always time for football in Texas. Even during the spring when it should be baseball season.

It’s very much this state’s favorite sport, with kids starting to play when they’re in first grade (flag football).

I grew up in Illinois where both my high school and college football teams basically stunk. Basketball was the “real sport” up north.

The cheerleaders make their presence known.

But when in Texas you do what the natives do . . . and that meant watching my son’s high school’s spring scrimmage last week.

Of course, most of my “watching” is through the lens of my Nikon D300 and Nikon 70-200mm lens. This was my first spring game, and it was fun to see the athletes already playing well. They seemed anxious for the season to start.

One thing’s for sure: Before we know it, we’ll be ready for some fall football!
