Overall, this was a weak category. First place was odd enough to stand out from the rest of the submissions. Second place is relatively standard jubilation photo, but the coach and player to left of the main subject contribute nicely to the emotion of the photo. Third place has some great reactions, too, but compositional oddities (hair cropped out of the bottom, square crop) that kept it from placing higher.
