Place: Gibson Southern HS
Event: IHSAA Football Sectionals, Game 1
Weather: Cold, rainy.
Predicted Outcome: LHS win
We were very optomistic going into this game, having won the previous week. The first quarter, it was clear we were evenly matched, with our boys putting the first points up on the board.
I didn't see #62 come out of the game when I shot this; I thought I was getting a picture of him in action. And didn't understand why the coach took him out; the previous play, GS lost yardage. This one, they gained. Put him back in, Coach!
I DID get a good close-up of #16 for his mom, who'd forgotten her camera:) Unfortunately, this was after GS's first touchdown in the second quarter. Going into halftime, the score was 7-3.
At this point, I was doing everything possible to keep warm. The rain was steady, and with 10 minutes to go, we were down 21-9. The picture disappeared as I was typing; maybe it will show up when I hit 'Publish'??? If not, I'll post it tomorrow. We ended up losing 24-9. As previously stated, K only played three times. Maybe if he'd played more, the team would have done better?? We'll never know now!
K and two of his teammates, K Wood and B Schnelle with their Curtis Painter autographed footballs. CP graduated in '04; played for Purdue; and now is the 3rd string QB for the Indianapolis Colts. I'm not sure if the case is very visible, but Wood is holding his. K's now sits proudly on the piano and is a constant source of temptation for his little brother!
The Sports Banquet is next week. I'll have more pictures after Halloween:)
