Everett Golson at Notre Dame

News broke this weekend that Notre Dame starting quarterback will miss the 2013 season because of what coach Brian Kelly called “poor academic judgment” in remarks to the media today. Golson won the starting job last August just before the start of the 2012 season. He went 10-1 as a starter with his only loss being the 42-14 thumping by Alabama in the BCS National Championship Game. Golson, a mobile quarterback, rushed for 298 yards and six touchdowns last season. This made for some photogenic moments on the field last season:

Notre Dame Blue-Gold spring football game

Notre Dame concluded spring practices with the annual Blue-Gold scrimmage in front of fans at Notre Dame Stadium. The scrimmage is offense verses defense with a system of scoring that reminds me of scoring on “Whose Line is it Anyway?” When the smoke cleared, the defense won … or at least I think they did.

Alabama rolls Notre Dame in BCS championship game

I had the great opportunity to photograph what was so far the biggest game of my career: the BCS National Championship Game between Notre Dame and Alabama. After an unexpected, undefeated season by the Irish, they fell flat out of the gate and never really showed much life in a 42-14 loss to Alabama. From a logistics standpoint, it was the easiest game I’ve shot all season. The sidelines were easy to navigate, the workroom wasn’t cramped and the internet connection was super fast. It’s always much easier to cover a winning team, but because of the game’s lopsidedness we were able to get our photos in early without any deadline stress. It’s been a fun season photographing the Irish, especially being my first year at the South Bend Tribune.

Notre Dame defeats USC earning berth in BCS title game

I had the opportunity to travel to Los Angeles this weekend to photograph Notre Dame’s win against USC at the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum. It was an interesting night for me working and transmitting in the stadium. The game started after 8 p.m. EDT meaning I had to submit at the half and immediately after the game to hit our paper’s midnight deadline. Unfortunately for me the stadium’s media WiFi was slower than most 56k connections and my 3G air card was jammed as cell reception in the stadium was terrible meaning I could only send back a handful of shots to our sports guys. It was one of those nights where nothing seemed to be going right – at least for me. Luckily, I was able to send about 25 shots back before deadline.
