LeFevour's leap

The Dan LeFevour Leap

Central Michigan University quarterback Dan LeFevour hurdles over an Eastern Michigan defender on third down to gain a first down at the 22-yard-line. LeFevour totaled 44 rushing yards on 11 carries with three rushing touchdowns. He also threw three touchdowns, completing 16-of-22 passes for 318 yards. (Shot for Central Michigan Life).

Saturday was a big day for me. It was my first Central Michigan University football game, and it was the homecoming game against Eastern Michigan. It was clear by the end of the first quarter, and more definitely by the end of the first half (35-0 at that point) that the game would be a blowout, but it was still such a great game to witness, and such a great opportunity, mor so, to shoot. The sun ducking in and out of the clouds created a few problems, but that was expected. I was glad to see other friendly photog faces on the field alongside me: Nathan Morgan, Ashley Miller, Jeff LaMonde, Chris Bacarella, Neil Blake, Libby March, Tim Fitzgerald, Mike Mulholland and Jillian Pekel to name a few. I can't wait to shoot more sports. I am falling in love with it. :)
