Over the past few months I have come to love photographing football games. The action, the drive, and the passion these kids have for the sport is amazing. These are photos I took during the Battle of the Southside for the El Paso Herald-Post.

From the Herald-Post:

After one of the more memorable seasons in local high school football, the regular season was sent to end on a high note, with the Battle of the Southside – Jefferson vs Bowie – at the Sun Bowl.

The Silver Foxes and Bears did not disappoint, with Jefferson capping their season with back-to-back wins, sending the playoff picture into a scramble and dismissing Bowie 26-16. (Listen to the full broadcast here)

With their victory, the Silver-Foxes force a ‘flip-off’ between the teams tied for the final playoff spot; in a turn that could have only been written for an episode of ‘Friday Night Lights,’ Jefferson won the toss and took the final playoff spot.

Enjoy the photos!
