My second American Football shot.

This fellow was determined to hold on tight to the ball - and he did. People piling on top of him and everything, but he didn't let go.

Funny sport, but interesting to watch and shoot.

Cleaned up the background, cropped to almost a square, and a few minor tweaks to curves, etc. That's it.

Comments etc. welcome!

Thanks for looking...

Mud? Sounds messy! Wink

I was hoping for some mud when I went to shoot a rally, but no chance - tropical temperatures and dry all day!
