Dickinson has some of the nicest high school sports facilities in the county. I always enjoy shooting at Sam Vitanza Stadium, the sidelines are spacious and the light is the best around.
The Gators didn't have much trouble with Clear Brook on Friday night; their offense worked quickly giving me plenty of opportunities to make photos. But as often happens, one of my best action shots of the game came from a play that ultimately didn't matter.

Midway through the second quarter Dickinson was driving again after a big defensive stop. With the ball around their own 40-yard-line, quarterback Cameron Martin pitched the ball to Alec Randle who then launched a halfback-pass across midfield toward Jordan Myers in double-coverage. Clear Brook cornerback Joseph Mobley had a bead on the ball from the moment it was thrown and made a great interception.
However the Wolverines ensuing possession fizzled with a missed field goal making this turnover only a small speed bump for the Gators on their way to a 37-19 victory.
