The first round of the CHSAA 5A football playoffs visited the NAAC in Arvada, Colorado when Poudre traveled to face Pomona. Unfortunately for Poudre, they had suffered a tragedy prior to the game when a player was killed in an auto accident following a team function. But with heavy hearts they played, and played hard.

2017 CHSAA Football Rocky Mountain at Ralston Valley

My second time out with my new Canon 300mm 2.8 IS version I was a football game at the NAAC in Arvada, Colorado between Rocky Mountain and Ralston Valley. It was a fun game to shoot, and I think I am getting myself dialed in with this lens. Ralston Valley had little problem with Rocky […]

2017 CHSAA Football Fruita Monument at Standley Lake

MaxPreps posted these backwards, so my blog is out of order. The football game posted earlier, Mountain Vista at Pomona, was actually the second game. Anyway, Fruita Monument traveled to the NAAC in Arvada, Colorado to take on Standley Lake. The game was one sided with Fruita Monument dominating the Gators 42-8. But the game was not […]

2017 CHSAA Football Rangeview at Ralston Valley

2017 CHSAA Boys Soccer Ralston Valley at Arvada West

After the Friday Ralston Valley football win over Arvada West, I shot the same to schools on the soccer pitch at the NAAC in Arvada, Colorado. I love soccer this time of year. At least the first half of the games. The lighting is beautiful. Then the sun goes down and it gets much harder. […]

The second game of a Friday night double header football game at the NAAC in Arvada had Castle View visit to take on Ralston Valley.

2017 CHSAA Football Chatfield at Golden

What a Friday night. Double header at the NAAC in Arvada, Colorado that started with a match-up between Chatfield and Golden. It was sunny, but boy-howdy, was it windy.

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 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 […]
