The Standley Lake Gators took on Holy Cross at the NAAC for a soccer game in Arvada, Colorado Monday night. It was the first real cold game of the season. It rained, the wind was blowing and it was just nasty out for the first half. The weather cleared up later in the game, which […]

Colorado’s number one football team, the Valor Christian Eagles visited the NAAC in Arvada on Friday to play the number two Pomona Panthers in game two of a double header.

2017 CHSAA Football Pinnacle at Arvada

Friday night I had a double header football game as Colorado’s Arvada High School Bulldogs took on Pinnacle Charter School. Neither team had scored a point all season, and while Arvada would go on to win the game, it was a win for both teams as they both ended up scoring. It may have been […]

2017 CHSAA Boys Soccer Longmont at Standley Lake

The Standley Lake Gators were hungry going into Wednesdays CHSAA soccer game against Longmont at the NAAC in Arvada, Colorado. The game started out pretty tame, with the Gators dominating the offense, but once they got on the board, things in the game changed. A bunch of yellow cards and a lot of complaining took […]

2017 CHSAA Softball Ralston Valley at Arvada West

Tuesday I shot my first softball game of the season. Arvada West hosted the Ralston Valley Mustangs for a conference game. RV was not the same RV I shot 3 years ago, and they ended up getting mercy ruled in the fifth inning. Getting back into softball, there were a couple things I wanted to […]

2017 CHSAA Volleyball Cherry Creek at Ralston Valley

I hit the Ralston Valley Mustangs gym Thursday night for the volleyball game against Cherry Creek. It was a rough outing for the Mustangs, falling in three straight games to lose the match 0-3. I focused on dig shots this game, trying something new. I got a few good ones. Next game I may look […]

2017 CHSAA Boys Soccer Smoky Hill at Ralston Valley

Tuesday’s soccer game at the NAAC in Arvada between visiting Smoky Hill and the home team Ralston Valley Mustangs ended up a surprise in my opinion. It had a few yellow cards and a red card in the game, and I believe at halftime as the officials went to the press box, they ejected a […]

Wow. The Wheat Ridge Farmers boys soccer team went into this game with a record of 4 wins, no losses, and one draw, and Pomona, well the Panthers have been struggling. But, the Panthers scored first and never looked back on a 3-2 win over Wheat Ridge. I started working on a video for shooting […]

2017 CHSAA Football Adams City at Standley Lake

Friday was Standley Lake’s homecoming game against Adams City and it was hell. I hate night football. For this game, the only football game of the evening, I tried a new strobe, and I did not like it. I will have to tweak it some before I am happy with it. I used an Adorama […]

2017 CHSAA Boys Soccer Arvada West at Evergreen

Weird that so far, most of the Arvada and Golden schools have been away for their soccer games at the NAAC, and teams from a good distance away are home. Arvada West played Evergreen on Thursday and it was a decent game. First half was all Arvada West. Evergreen just could not seem to get […]

2017 CHSAA Boys Soccer Longmont at Golden

This was my worst soccer game. Something happened with my charger that instead of charging my batteries, they were discharging them. I finally got one battery charged to about 90 percent before I had to leave for the game between Longmont and the Golden Demons…for some reason, Longmont, which is not close by, was the […]

2017 CHSAA Football Fountain-Fort Carson at Ralston Valley

The second game of my Friday double-header had Fountain-Fort Carson visiting the NAAC to face Ralston Valley. It was a polar opposite of the early game in many ways. It was cooler, but not too cool…actually felt pretty good, except for the mosquitoes. I was eaten alive. I need to find where my bug spray […]

2017 CHSAA Volleyball Fruita Monument vs Ralston Valley

2017 CHSAA Volleyball Fruita Monument vs Ralston Valley

On Thursday I headed to Ralston Valley High School to shoot some volleyball. I love the game, but in all honesty, hate shooting it. You just cannot strobe, unless you are in a huge arena and have strobes mounted in the catwalks. Strobes in a high school gym, unlike basketball, most of the time, cause […]

2017 CHSAA Boys Soccer Arapahoe at Ralston Valley

My second soccer game of the season and it was a lot better. First game was windy, cloudy, and raining, this game was just windy with the sun out for most of it. Arapahoe and RV combined for a high scoring contest. Seven goals in total would be scored, four by Ralston Valley, although, they […]

2017 CHSAA Football Mullen and Pomona

Following Thursday’s soccer game between Mullen and Pomona, I covered the same two school for football opening night on Friday. The main thing I can say is, I need to lose weight, and fast. After three years of taking care of mom, sitting on my butt, I have gained more weight than ever, and it […]
