According to Flickr “favorites” these were my top five sports photos of 2016. Not all of the photos were taken in 2016; rather, these are the photos most “favorited” in 2016.

I spent yesterday on the sidelines of the Ducks-Utes game in Eugene. The weather wasn’t too bad. In fact, it only rained during the pregame. It was mostly cloudy the rest of the time, but I can’t complain. A day game without rain is more than I expected.

I took nearly 900 photos and have only looked at about 50 at this point. I’ll post some more here soon.

If you thought playing rugby in a prom dress would be difficult, try running in a prom dress when the grass is about six inches too long too.

SOU Women’s Soccer Team

A couple weeks ago I was asked to take photos at the first, annual 2013 Black and Red All-Sports Awards Banquet. The event worked sort of like an academy awards show with the athletes in formal dress. Three players from each SOU sports team were part of the voting block. There were nominees for various awards like athlete of the year for each sport, play of the year, coach of the year, etc.

Today’s photo was taken after the event and includes much of the Women’s Soccer Team. The finalists for soccer athlete of the year were Alyssa Bricker and Stephanie Carr. I’ll show you the winner in a future post.
