Friday Night Lights (the rest)

November 30, 2015

Somehow, it's been about 3.5 months of Friday Night Lights coverage. I've really enjoyed the routine of going out to these high schools every Friday and immersing myself into the "boys of fall" culture. Even the dead fly graveyards in the tiny press boxes and wearing two pairs of pants for the colder games couldn't get me down. I really have enjoyed all of this. 

 

I was talking to my good friend, Jacob Byk, who covered the FNL season at his internship in Hutchinson, Kansas and we both agree this has really been sort of like a project. With that more in mind next season, we both intend to try and capture more of the background stuff (such as locker room coverage). 

 

I updated last at 8-weeks through the season, and here is the rest. I'll be putting together my top 10 favorite images from the whole season in another post soon. Looking forward to next season, wherever I may be!
