first- this is such a hard photo to get- bravo. second- this placed strictly out of the uniqueness of the shoe going into the helmet- good job on keeping it clean. third- As a sports editor- I (Sammy) FREAKING LOVE THIS PHOTO- its community driven and fantastic. Is it perfect? no but life is messy and regular non regulated sports are messy and i would be so freaking happy if this photo came across my desk for a daily feature in sports.
