This winter, I braved the foggy California cold to photograph a season of football for the 49ers in the All Out Flag Football league in Bakersfield, CA. (Sorry east coast folks, foggy is as brutal as our winters tend to get.) This is a partnership with the NFL Play 60 initiative and it encourages boys & girls to play flag football. I have to say that this was a wonderful experience and all of the kids seemed to have so much fun getting out there. I witnessed so much good sportsmanship that it brought back a little hope for the future of our world.
All of these children had such great attitudes and a real love for football. I really love to catch the subtle moments of children whenever they forget that people are watching them. Sometimes you capture sweet moments, at others you find complete comedy. I'm looking forward to documenting the next season! If you have a young one who wants to play football, I highly suggest that you check this league out.
