Some quick comments.

Overall - great timing on most of these and nice job of framing (with one minor exception). Timing and framing are the toughest parts IMO so you're well on your way.

#1 - great moment and has the potential to be the best shot of the group but it's underexposed - the moment is the players faces and they're dark. You need to expose for faces, not uniforms.

#2 Great timing on this one - but it is also underexposed and you cropped off a portion of the foot (only bad crop in the bunch IMO and it's a very minor tick).

#3 best of the bunch technically - Great job!

#4 Again, good timing and framing but it's too soft to be a great photo.

Lastly - except for #3, colors are a bit dull - they don't POP but that's easily fixed in post processing workflow.

Please don't take these comments the wrong way. I think you did a great job - there's just some technical things you can do to make these awesome photos next time. As I said, you've got the eye for it. Keep up the good work and keep sharing!!

Much appreciated.
