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 lacrosse comes from behind to defeat Detroit

Shooting a sport I’ve never photographed before can be both exciting and terrifying. On one hand, I’m approaching it with fresh eyes, but at the same time I’m not sure what the “standard shot” is. The last time I had this foreign yet freeing experience of shooting an unknown sport was a couple summers ago with the Cheyenne Frontier Days┬árodeo.┬áNotre Dame lacrosse was a fun assignment: I moved around along the sidelines and spent the entire third quarter shooting down from the roof of the press box to mix up my vantage points. It was hard resisting the urge to motordrive through bits of action in an attempt to catch the ball or the sticks in interesting peak action moments. This made for a long editing process after the game since I shot more than I probably should have. Good games always provide for good pictures and such was the case on Saturday: Notre Dame trailed for most of the game, but made a furious comeback to win 9-7 to advance in the tournament.

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.
