I was going through some football photos again from last weekend. This photo brought back memories for me. This particular photo is of a punt return on the last down for Notre-Dame. The John Abbott football player in blue (#14) is receiving the kick and is just about to catch the ball.

Note that player #32 is totally focused on the ball and paying particular attention about staying at least 5 yards away from the receiver, lest he get penalized for a 'no yards' call against him. But it's a fantastic time for #6 to step up and absolutely clock the Notre-Dame player into the stands. Back when I played at John Abbott and later Concordia University I enjoyed dishing out a crunching blow to anyone dead in their tracks like this situation. Not so much now, you understand.

This photo did bring back memories. I also remember being on the other side of some pretty punishing hits. It's a a two-way street. Anyway, #6 did do his job quite well and blocked the way for #14 to make up some yards down field.

Great action shots!
It looks like you add a good time in your old stomping grounds!

Enjoy the last days of summer!
