It’s, like, better than losing.

September 14: Thanks Coach!!!

A goal of sports photography is to try and capture an animated response, or at a minimum, a glimpse of emotion from a coach. Well, my cup runneth over yesterday (or should that be ranneth).

The scene: First Flight High School gym. The event: a volleyball game, First Flight vs Cape Hatteras. The coach: Brittany Barnett, Cape Hatteras High School.

It was clear that Cape Hatteras wanted to win this one. The team in traditional fashion gathered in a huddle after each point – but they seemed pumped-up even more than usual after each point added to their side of the scoreboard.

And the coach. Hmmmmm, how do I describe it. Better yet, let me show you with a few photos. Please note that this went on for about 90 minutes.

Thanks coach. I think I got my required “coach’s reaction shot”!

I guess as Nuke LaLoosh said –  “I love winning, man! I f—ing love winning! You know what I’m saying? It’s, like, better than losing

Until next post be kind, be safe, and remember the wisdom of Nuke
