First football of the season

I kicked off the 2011-12 college sports season on September 3 at Macalester College in St. Paul, Minnesota where the Grinnell Pioneers came to visit the Scots. It was an overcast day and rain passed just north, but it stayed nicely dry on this stretch of Snelling Avenue.

Macalester quarterback Clark Bledsoe hands off to T. Joe Loiselle during a game between the Scots and the Grinnell Pioneers on September 3, 2011 in St. Paul, Minnesota. Grinnell defeated Macalester 31-6. Loiselle gained 48 yards on the day.

Grinnell center Quinn Rosenthal prepares to snap the ball in a game between the Pioneers and the host Macalester Scots on September 3, 2011 in St. Paul, Minnesota. The Pioneers defeated the Scots 31-6.

Macalester linebacker Levi Brown prepares to tackle a Grinnel player during a game between the two schools on September 3, 2011. Grinnell defeated the host Scots 31-6, in St. Paul.

Grinnell wide receiver Cody Weber celebrates his touchdown reception during a game between the Pioneers and the host Macalester Scots on September 3, 2011. Weber had 5 catches for 43 yards.

Logan Granera, the Grinnell wide receiver, who also handles kicking and punting duties, take a point after attempt during a game against the host Macalester Scots on September 3, 2011. Granera had seven catches for 83 yards and a touchdown, adding a field goal in the second quarter as well as four P.A.T. in the second half.

Grinnell linebacker Jeremy Wiles fires up the Pioneers sideline in the second half of a game against the host Macalester Scots. The Pioneers won 31-6 while Wiles had two solo tackles and two assists.

You may be asking why these are all cropped square and the reason is that when I first processed these the portfolio show I was going to be in was thinking of doing a square crop theme and and I wanted to try to apply that to sports.

HS Football: Hutchinson @ Northfield

Went to the Northfield High School football game tonight. I watched a bit of the first half and shot the second half for fun. Hutchinson won 19-14 with the Raider’s QB Sam Maus (collarbone) out in the first quarter, Northfield seemed a bit sluggish on offense.
