This year the opportunity arose to photograph the Iowa Shrine Bowl at Jack Trice Stadium in Ames, Iowa. The past two years I have been photographing Mustang Football in Dubuque, Iowa. Both the Head Coach of the Mustangs and his son were voted to participate on the North team. What a great event to witness, the atmosphere was celebratory with a positive vibe from all who were there.
"The Iowa Shrine Bowl Game is an all-star football game between selected pre-college football athletes on each side of a north-south dividing line in Iowa. The game brings honor and recognition to the players, their schools and their communities. It has also been an effective tool in raising money for Shriners Hospital For Children." From the Shrine Bowl site.
Congratulations to the North team on their win! View more images from the game.
