The posture in #1 is striking, but I like the action in #5 and #6. Nice shots, as usual.

John, as I was looking further at your pictures, a question occurred to me that is not photo-related, at least not directly.

Are these high school teams? In at least a couple of the shots, a good sized stadium can be seen in the background. The reason I'm wondering is that in Arkansas, and a number of other states, high school soccer is in the spring for the specific reason that soccer teams have to share the facilities with football. However, I know that is not the case all over the country.

I also notice that all are day shots. Are they scheduled that way so as not to conflict with football?

The overall question is one that is faced by high schools across the country. The way they answer it varies tremendously from state to state. (Missouri, for instance, plays the girls in the fall and the boys in the spring, something I've never fully understood. Because of a warmer climate, Louisiana plays soccer in the winter, to coincide with basketball.) In this part of the world, few schools have the resources to have a dedicated soccer stadium.

Not photo related, but the kind of thing that occurs to a HS soccer coach during his off-season, lol.

Trojan,

This one particular HS has a different soccer facility. It's a fairly large school district (they just put in a new$1million turf-2 turf field on their football field)and soccer is a big deal there. The other HS I shoot regularly does indeed share space with football. I know the HS I went to, soccer wasn't that big of a deal so the games were played on the grounds at the school - not even stadium seating just a few bleachers. The sport is gaining some ground here in Ohio but mostly with younger kids - interest seems to dwindle a bit by HS age still.

The game was 7:00 pm which is standard for soccer games in NE Ohio. Football here starts at either 7:00 or 7:30.
