One of the reasons I like shooting this so much is the fact that besides the rough play and ample opportunity for great action, there are no helmets to hide the expressions of the players. It's not too often that you can catch a meaningful expression behind helmets during a "real" game. It's gotten worse lately since players have added that plastic shield over their eyes.
This is John Falls gaining yardage while losing his shorts to Chris Quintana.
Every year, some guys I know get together and toss around a pigskin the morning of Thanksgiving. It's common, lots of people do it. I like playing football but I always feel that the photos I get are much better than any contribution I can make on the field. This is one of those times.
