Really fun highlights in this category that immediately stood above the rest. First, the boxing photo, everyone had a visceral reaction and it stood out immediately. Props to the photographer for being right there. Second has all the great facial expressions and tension in the arms. Third was a good capture that could have used a crop but really helped seeing the expression on the players face.
