Just to get caught up a bit I want to share some of my photo activities from this spring. I've been shooting Smithson Valley varsity baseball for a couple of years, but with my nephew, Dakota Mawyer, graduating and moving on to a football scholarship at Incarnate Word University and my ties to Boerne growing I started committing more time to shooting Boerne High School sports. When Smithson Valley went down early in the 5A playoffs and Boerne moved on I found myself with more time to shoot some of their games on spec (that's photographer speak for "I hope someone buys some of these photos"). And was I rewarded with some great action. The 4A playoff game against New Braunfels Canyon resulted in everything from a bench-clearing brawl to a long-shot grand slam to win the game.
Last, but hardly least, I was accepted by MaxPreps to shoot high school sports. MaxPreps is a CBS Sports partner that provides complete team coverage for varsity sports across the US. With Texas high school participation on the rise I'm excited to be part of their growth.
