This one was supposed to be over sooner...
Last weekend was the opening of the college football season. And, except for my beloved Georgia Bulldogs, most of the bigger teams opened up with patsies. Like Texas Tech, who was playing North Dakota. The only problem was that no one told North Dakota that they were just supposed to let Tech's high octane offense that they were supposed to run wild all over North Dakota.
Honestly , the only reason we would even go up and cover this game was that Taylor Potts, the new starting quarterback for Texas Tech is from Abilene. There are also a couple of other players from Abilene who get significant playing time. I spent most of the game shooting photos of Potts, and the other two local players, Lyle Leong and Will Ford. I'm not sure how many other games we'll be able to get up to shoot based on what other local games there are to shoot as well as other events going on locally. So, I had to make sure we'd have plenty of file photos for the future, in case I can't get back. Hopefully that won't be the case, outside of coach Mike Leach showing some rare emotion (bottom photo), and a decent celebration shot after Potts (top photo) scored his first touchdown, I didn't get a whole lot of photos I was happy with.
