Canon 1Dx, 400mm, 3200iso, f3.2, 1/1000th, Manual Central Florida Knights quarterback Blake Bortles (5) scrambles towards the end zone against the Baylor Bears during the Fiesta Bowl at University of Phoenix Stadium.

Last week I shot my first shoot of 2014, the Fiesta Bowl between the Bayl0r Bears against the University of Central Florida Knights. This was the first time UCF had ever been in a BCS bowl game so you know they were hungry to defy the experts who had them as a double digit underdog. Check it out!

Canon 1Dx, 400mm, 500iso, f4, 1/1600th, Manual Washington State Cougars nose tackle Ioane Gauta (95) loses his helmet as he tackles Colorado State Rams running back Kapri Bibbs (5) in the second quarter during the Gildan New Mexico Bowl at University Stadium.

Every year I make the hour flight over to lovely Albuquerque, New Mexico to cover the New Mexico Bowl. Like many people, I’m sure you haven’t heard of the New Mexico Bowl but I assure you its always a fun event to cover as a photographer thanks to it being a day game outdoors. To someone who spends most of his time covering football at night or in a dome, its a huge deal! Continue on to check out the incredible game!

Canon 1Dx, 400mm, 5000iso, f2.8, 1/1250th, Manual Arizona Wildcats running back Trey Griffey (son of baseball legend Ken Griffey Jr) is upended by the Arizona State Sun Devils defense in the first quarter of the 87th annual Territorial Cup at Sun Devil Stadium.

Like many photographers, I prefer college football to professional football as the players are still out there for the love of the game, instead of just the money. College football players seem to play harder and show more emotion as most will never play at a higher level than college. Another thing that makes college football even cooler are the rivalry games to close out the regular season. Continue reading to check out the highlights!

Canon 1Dx, 600mm, 500iso, f4, 1/4000th, Manual Arizona Wildcats running back Ka'Deem Carey (right) runs the ball in the second half against the Oregon Ducks at Arizona Stadium.

A few weeks ago Ka’Deem Carey and the Arizona Wildcats ran their way to the schools first victory in 30 years over a top five ranked opponent. A rare day game with great light would make for a fun day in the office for me!

Canon 1Dx, 70-200mm, 1000iso, f2.8, 1/1250th, Manual Texas A&M Aggies quarterback Johnny Manziel (2) trots over an SMU Mustangs defender on his way to a first quarter touchdown.

Nothing beats when a plan comes together perfectly allowing me to photograph one of the most electrifying athletes in college football, Johnny Manziel. I always make it a goal to try and shoot all the Heisman winners I can while they’re still in college so to be in Texas for work on a weekend A&M had a home game a few hours south of my location and its a perfect setup!

A few days after my first NCAA football game of the year in Tempe, I would next head down to Tucson to shoot the Washington Huskies visiting the Arizona Wildcats. The last time I shot a football game down in Tucson was the 1999 Insight Bowl. Thats 13 years since I have shot there. Boy have I been missing out! Its a great stadium with nice lights but most importantly wide sidelines that makes it easy to get around. Lets check out the shots.

With my busy travel season slowing down a bit it gives me time to cover other sports such as one of my favorites, Football! My first NCAA football game of the season would take place about 10 miles from my place at ASU in Tempe. With the #3 ranked Oregon Ducks in town it was sure to be a tough game for the Sun Devils.

Next up in my Best of 2011 series is my favorite football images of the year. While I did not get to shoot near as many football games as I wanted to this year, it would still end up being a solid season of images. Enjoy!
