The Passion. The enthusiasm. Stadiums holding over 100,000 people. Young fans, and their parents, who are alumni. Bands, cheerleaders, uniforms. Traditions and rivalries. The Big Ten. Texas (the whole state).

Mascots and beer. Larger-than-life coaches.

Joy. Despair.

I love it all.

Here are some of my favorite images from my career shooting college football.
