Thought this was a good shot of my son before he went on the hunt of the quarterback

Good exposure here with nice strong blacks. The composition is good also with your son in focus and the opposing team in the background and out of focus but we can still see what is going on. The only criticism I would make is no feet! With this kind of shot you either have to include all the person or frame the shot so that it is a three quarter length or whatever. Anyway make it clear with your framing what you intentionally wanted to include and exclude.
Looks to me like he's waiting for the kick-off. The QB won't even be on the field!
The opposing team are visible but not on the field; that's all the other players, extra to the 11 opposition players on-field at this time (you can see that some are seated and others don't even have their helmet on).
I think this shows your son waiting for the action to begin while he's on kick-off coverage duties and about to run down the field to try and tackle the returner. The 50-yard marker in the background, and his stance, suggests this. If my analysis is accurate this doesn't show us a great deal I'm afraid and becomes a bit of an empty shot. Sorry.
Next time, get in the endzone behind the kick-returner and capture some shots of your son, head-on, as he chases downfield to cover the kick-off.
This was actually a shot of my son as he was playing outside linebacker. He lined up wide right to the wide side of the fiield anticipating a sweep play. I just happen to be walking to the other end to catch the play as it started and snapped this shot. And I did miss the feet! Again I only had limited room to be on the field, where as this year since I am working for the school I have free reign of the field to catch the action.
If he lines up at outside linebacker, he needs to keep his inside foot furthest up the field, so as to give himself room to adjust his feet when taking on a block. With his outside foot up he'll have no leverage and nowhere to go. He needs to contain the outside so foot-placement is crucial.
Well when you are in a nickel/dime defense with four LB's that is the job of the LB on his inside shoulder. But I get your point. I just thought it was a cool shot
Much as I enjoy watching American football and I do understand it to some extent, I'm not really interested in the exactitudes of where he should be standing or on which foot!
I just happen to think that this shot works pretty well except for his feet!
And as Frank has said, the horizon is sloping a bit.
