Preseason: New York Giants vs Buffalo Bills

NFL: Hall of Fame Game-New York Giants vs Buffalo Bills

 

The NFL is finally back! The New York Giants and Buffalo Bills had their first preseason game in Canton, Ohio. Preseason is  interesting as most of the veteran starters only play for a quarter, allowing for rookies and other guys trying to make the team get playing time.

Eli Manning and EJ Manuel only played for the first quarter but it was enough for the Giants to score their first touchdown.

2014 Pro Football Hall of Fame Enshrinement

New York Giants defensive end Michael Strahan kisses his bust during the 2014 Pro Football Hall of Fame Enshrinement at Fawcett Stadium.

The NFL is finally back! Every year the season kicks off in Canton, Ohio where a few former players are inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame. It’s amazing to think about how many DI college football players there are, then each year only 224 are drafted into the NFL. There are only 287 inductees in the Pro Football Hall of Fame, which makes being inducted such a special honor.

Cleveland Browns Scrimmage in Akron

NFL: Cleveland Browns-Training Camp

Before heading down to Canton for the Pro Football Hall of Fame festivities, I made a stop in Akron where the Cleveland Browns where having a family day scrimmage open to the fans. It was full go, hitting, tackling and touchdown celebrations.

Long lines wrapped around the stadium to get in and the stands where packed to see Johnny Manziel. I can’t wait until he scores his first NFL touchdown. I think the internet might break!

NFL: Cleveland Browns-Training Camp

 

August is finally here, and that means one thing! Football season. With the NFL kicking off training camp last week, competition is among us. Players are battling for a starting spot and the heat is on in Cleveland. Rookie quarterback Jonny Manziel is battling with a Cleveland local Brian Hoyer for the starting spot.

My first preseason game is this weekend- Buffalo Bills vs New York Giants at Pro Football Hall of Fame. I have around 30 NFL games on the schedule this year, which is going to make for a fun season.

Adrienne’s & Drew’s Wedding in Lakeview, CT

Adrienne & Drew's Wedding | Interlaken Inn, Lakeville, Connecticut

I traveled to Lakeview Connecticut to capture some beautiful photographs of Adrienne’s and Drew’s wedding. Adrienne is an amazing writer and feature producer for ESPN and Drew is a features producer for College Game Day on ESPN. I was very honored that Adrienne asked me to document their wedding. The weather was gorgeous and the foliage made for beautiful images.

Congrats you to and I will see you at a stadium this fall!

Jimmie Johnson first career win at Michigan

NASCAR: Quicken Loans 400-Practice

The NASCAR circuit made it’s first stop in the Irish Hills of Michigan, where for the past few years Ford cars have been dominating, but the last five races Hendrick Motorsports has been on fire. It was also a very busy weekend for me. I was doing double duty, covering NASCAR 65 miles away from my house and the Toledo Mud Hens. Covering 8+ hours of nascar then covering 4+ hours of baseball is extremely exhausting, but it made for a great work weekend which I am very thankful for.

2014 Indianapolis 500

IndyCar: Indianapolis 500

The 2014 Indianapolis 500 is my fifth time covering The Greatest Spectacle in Racing. The history behind the Indianapolis Speedway is like no other track in the country. The first race at the track was in 1911 and this was the 98th running of the 500.

Be able to be one of the 250,000 spectators to be part of the race on Memorial Day Weekend is very special. Let’s get on with the photos.

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.

You’re Not In Kansas Anymore

NASCAR: 5-Hour Energy 400

I am slowly working towards getting the opportunity to visit ever NASCAR track and Kansas Speedway has been on the list for a long time. Everyone had negative things to say about the track but I was very impressed. There was no traffic entering or exiting the track, the garages were nicely lit and Kansas makes for some awesome sunsets!
