State Championships at Jerry World, Game 2...
After the Stamford game I was hoping the second game I had to cover between Munday and Tenaha was going to be a little better game or at least even a little bit better. Well, damn I was wrong. This game was actually worse. Munday, I thought was a good team that could pretty much run with anyone. The problem here was Tenaha had just as much (or more) speed as Munday, but they also had a massive offensive line that was not only big, but they could move pretty well too. Often times, Class 1A teams that have big lines are mostly big because all their players are just fat. Tenaha was the exception, they were big, strong and moved pretty well too.
So, here I was spending the better half of eight hours sitting on the field at Cowboys Stadium shooting two games and seeing the same results, both pretty ugly. The one good thing about this game was, although I didn't shoot as many photos, I was a lot happier with the ones I got. The one big problem with shooting a 52-28 loss that was pretty much decided in the first half was finding a lot of shots with a lot of emotion in them. Lucky I was get to get a few that told the story.
