Joined the other Oregonian photographers for my first and only college football game of the season. I sure picked a good one to photograph. The winner of the Civil War was awarded an invitation to the Rose Bowl. The game went back and forth. Hands down, the best football game I have worked.
I started the day in an airplane where I photographed the stadium at dusk. It was a 6 pm game and we had to clear the airspace at 5 pm due to FAA regulations. Plenty of time to land and get back to the stadium for kickoff.
Jamie Francis and I teamed up to collect pictures and audio from the game. We put all the pieces in the talented hands of Rob Finch and here is what we all came up with … Civil War audio slideshow
This is the first installment of a new photo column that fellow Oregonian photographer Jamie Francis and I will be producing. We will travel to the far corners of the state and hopefully show the culture of football around the different regions. This first one is going to be difficult to beat. What a great group of kids and a wonderful story. Jamie and I will share the duties of collecting pictures, audio and video. Below is the online version while there will be a picture (2 for the first installment) and an extended caption in the sports section once a week.
