Huge category. Really nice images. The first place photo was a sleeper. The caption confirmed our first thoughts, however, the photo stands on it's own and is powerful. Second place was a fun photo of fans celebrating with a Utah State player; the position of the hands in the background gave it a unique movement feel. Third place was just "how can you not" focus on this individual, fun photo and a good background completes the image.
