Johnny Football in Cleveland

NFL: Cleveland Browns-OTA

Johnny Football is the only freshman to win the Heisman Trophy and the only player in NCAA history to have 5,000 total yards and 1,000 rushing yards in a season and set the SEC record with 5,116 yards of total offense. NFL analysis projected him to be the first quarterback picked in the 2014 NFL draft, but he fell to the 22nd pick being drafted by the Cleveland Browns.

I personally like Manziel’s type of play, it’s something different the NFL hasn’t seen. With this being such a big story in the media I got the opportunity to spend 25 minutes at Browns OTA to knock off as many photos as I could to be used for articles over the next few months.

AFC Divisional: Indianapolis Colts at New England Patriots

NFL: Divisional Round-Indianapolis Colts at New England Patriots

The NFL Playoff tour continued for me, this time I traveled to Foxborough, MA to cover the 2013 Divisional round between the Indianapolis Colts and New England Patriots. I was pretty excited to cover this game after shooting the Chiefs vs Colts game the previous weekend. The only part I wasn’t looking forward to was the fact, it was going to rain the entire game. Usually when it rains is the only time, I use lens hoods for my cameras. When I went to the Olympics in London last summer, I left my lens hood for my Nikon 400mm in the hotel after frantically packing last second.

NFL: AFC Wildcard Playoff-San Diego Chargers at Cincinnati Bengals

 

After the amazing comeback by the Indianapolis Colts against the Kansas City Chiefs, I made the short 99 mile drive from Indianapolis to Cincinnati. The whole week they were predicting crazy amounts of snow, which I was hoping was actually going to happen this time as I haven’t shot a game in the snow all year. Surprise!!! NO SNOW! Instead we got heavy rain for the second half of the game. Enough about the annoying weather on with the photos.

Justin Tucker kicks a 61 yard field goal to beat the Lions

NFL: Baltimore Ravens at Detroit Lions

 

Going into my 7th football game, I was having high hopes that this game was going to be a high scoring battle. But it came down to the kicker. Being a place kicker my self, it’s always good to see a a fellow kicker score all the points. It’s even better when you can document a special moment in a friends life. I use to kick with Justin when we were both in college down in Abingdon, VA with our kicking coach Doug Blevins. Enjoy!
