EBAL Football Captured in Photos
De La Salle Spartans v. Cal High Grizzlies; Nov. 11 2011
The first game I was able to cover with the camera is also the last of the 2011 regular season in the EBAL.California High of San Ramon vs. De La Salle Concord, at DLS on a rainy Friday night.
This would be the last home game for a number of DLS seniors and they made it memorable one, winning 24-3 to go undefeated in league play and take the #1 seed in the North Coast Section (NCS), where playoff games begin next week and the Spartans will have a bye.
But this blog isn’t so much about who won or lost, as I really have no favorites, but it is about capturing timeless images of the game. While these are the property of myself (Gregory Cross) and are for purposes of this blog, do view, share and enjoy them * but do not download to use for commercial or promotional purposes.
