Last year Mercer University revived its football team, and for the first time since their return, Michelle and I were able to make it down for a home game. The McAfee School of Theology held a tailgate party at the game, so we went with several faculty and staff to show our support.
When we decided to go, I thought it would be a great opportunity to test out the a6000 with the Sony 70-200 FE lens. So, I extended my rental from the past week’s DragonCon and had a blast with it. Unfortunately, the Bears didn’t win, but they showed a lot of heart against Furman.
Mr. McAfee School of Theology, Barrett, our colleague and friend in admissions.
An impressive entrance.
Ready to play.
I was impressed by the pressure of Mercer’s defense.
After a punt. I just thought this shot demonstrated the great action freeze of the a6000 and the depth of field of the 70-200.
A timely QB sack.
The pressure on the quarterback which led to …
… this interception.
More Bears’ defense.
After a good play.
A shot of the band with the flag corps for my niece.
This guy was a riot!
And the next two players had a lot of spirit …
… as they cheered on their teammates.
