Three-peat

This season’s Lindy’s Annuals are hitting the shelves now. My photos appear on three covers this year, the National College Pacific Northwest edition as well as the Pro Seattle and San Francisco/Oakland/San Diego edition. It has been a great experience to shoot for Lindy’s for the past several years.

Dawgs go Bowling after Apple Cup thriller!

I made the trip over to Pullman this weekend for the Apple Cup. Winter was in full swing as game time temps were in the mid 20’s but a near packed house at Martin Stadium didn’t seem to mind and took advantage of the snow that fell most of the week by pelting the field with snow balls. This year’s game had something riding on it other than being a rivalry game, a Husky win would mean a bowl game for the first time in several years. The Huskies managed to get past a much improved Cougar team 35-28 and earned themselves the Apple Cup trophy and a trip to San Diego for the Holiday Bowl!

Bruins Blacked Out

Jake Locker said goodbye to Husky Stadium in style leading the Huskies to a 24-7 victory over UCLA Thursday night. The Huskies came out in all black uniforms as part of the university’s “Black out” campaign. The crowd got one last chance to see seniors Jake Locker and Mason Foster, but it was Chris Polk that had the big night finishing with 138 yards and a score.
