“First Touchdown” is an action shot taken of South Pointe’s wide receiver B.J. Davis during his final game of the season as a junior, when he scored his first touchdown of the season. The final game happened to be during the state championship game played at Williams-Brice Stadium, making this moment especially sweet for the player and fans.
“Pure Joy” is a picture that embodied the emotion of senior Bo Taylor and Coach Welvin Simpkins during the state championship game.

This picture shows Craig’s confidence while dancing in front of many. The news magazine used this picture with a featured story on Craig; I was very honored to have one of my pictures featured.
“Carrying Dreams” is an action shot of wide receiver Scott Robinson who stepped up towards the end of the season. The weight is on his shoulders as Robinson strives to get recognized by recruits. He is the only person who gets to “carry”and “hold” on to his dreams.
“Breathe” is an action shot of Lucy Cassidy during the Crosstown throw-down competition, with the district’s three high schools competing. It captures a breath that she has to take to in order to successfully finish her race against her tough competition.
Taking it in
“Taking in it” captures junior Clemson football commit Derion Kendrick reflecting at the bottom of the State House steps on what he and his Stallion team accomplished as three-time state champions. The look on his face shows solemnity, yet behind that, it shows humbleness. Despite the hype of everything, it finally hit Kendrick–he is a champion.
