Ok I know this is out of focus and I was making a lot of adjustments to my camera. Thanks to a few folks on here I think I have it set up to test for next practice. But there is just something about this shot that I like. I know that the running back is out of focus but I slowed shutter speed down just to see what I would get.

Great try. You are right, if the foreground figure was sharp this would be an fabulous shot, but hey it's hard to get it right and I can see why you like this image. And.. in fact some people would argue that it shows movement and therefore blurred is okay. Colours and great and composition works well with him dashing into the space in front of him. Don't just wait for big opportunities like this - pop along to the local football field / cricket field and practice capturing action and have a play.

He's just a whisker away from being sharp!
As Jude says, that would really make this.
It's bad enough trying to get a child in focus when they're runnng in a straight line at a school sports day. Your lad here must have been moving from side to side as well.
I'm not sure that there is a formula for getting shots like this right. All I can do is to reinforce what Jude's said. Keep on practising.

There are two ways of looking at this - and some will accept the movement blur as part of the image. I prefer the other route, with MOST of the foreground figure sharp with some blur of his extremities. The main thing, though, is that you have experimented, and that must be applauded.

I would crop a little from the top.
