Boerne-Champion vs Marble Falls Football

You've probably read all the stories about the volume of passing yards these two quarterbacks generated last Thursday night in Boerne, Texas.

Mike Richardson, the Marble Falls quarterback threw for over 700 yards breaking the state record, followed closely by Champion's Kyle Poeske who threw for 595 yards, tying him for number 4 all-time mark in Texas.

When the Marines pay attention, you have to be doing something right (or very wrong).... Kyle was doing it right.

TMI vs St. Anthony Varsity Football...and a bit of JV Volleyball vs Hyde Park Baptist

I shot pretty regularly at TMI a few year ago, and they ended up using a number of my photos to enhance their fund raising efforts to improve their athletic fields and operations.  I didn't shoot last year for a number of reasons, but had an opening on Friday night and thought I'd see how the football team was doing after a year of rebuilding with an entirely new coaching staff.

Doing quite well, thank you. ;-)

TMI is different, it reminds me of my senior year in a similar academy quite a few years ago. Small school, lots of playing time for all the participants since the pool of players is relatively small. I think the neatest thing, is the intimacy of the game with the parents and no where else have I seen the team pretty much beat up on each other and then sincerely meet after the game on the field to hear the coaches sharing their thoughts with both teams.

Anyway, a great night, particularly as the rains held off.... check out the action at (aka

Before the football game I had a chance to catch one of the TMI vs Holy Cross JV volleyball games. Shooting in the gym is a challenge due to the lighting, inability to use strobes and lots of orange walls and floors, but I captured a few nice shots.  Check them out in the volleyball gallery at

Boerne High School vs Medina Valley Football and Holy Cross Volleyball

Busy weekend with Boerne taking on Medina Valley Friday night, followed by the Boerne girls taking on Holy Cross in volleyball.

Lots of photos at (or

Game action selects may also be found on, but someone needs to get the roster loaded for the teams.  It really improves player visibility.

Since it's so hard to capture the intensity of the linesmen, I thought we'd lead off with this:

And sometimes the light is just perfect....

Boerne-Champion vs New Braunfels Varsity Football

First official game of the season and I think everyone, the teams, the officials and definitely me were trying to get back in the groove.  Champion was passing left and right all night and dominated New Braunfels, but as usual there is always great action no matter who's winning or losing...which is the really great thing about my job.  The one thing I noticed was the game was definitely longer as the clock stops more often with incomplete passes.

Lots more photos at or (aka
