1st: Great emotion and peak action in a tight sports photo that has a clean background. Nice job. 2nd: Tight frame where you can still see action and clearly see the face. The uniqueness of the hair in motion really stood out and made this a visually appealing frame. There were many football frames in this category with this sticking out to us most. 3rd: Another peak action shot, though we wish there was more emotion. Good enough to place compared to rest of the images. Be aware of your cropping and backgrounds. Many photos had some moments, but were either too loosely cropped or had too busy of backgrounds.
