A few weeks ago, I was on the sidelines at NC State’s Carter Finley Stadium for the 2013 North Carolina High School Athletic Association’s (NCHSAA) State Football Championships. This year’s football championship will be remembered for many things. The great weather will not be one of them. I have shot in terrible conditions before, but nothing prepared me for the 14 hour day of rain, ice and a brutal wind.
While the weather stunk, the action on the field was epic! There were rematches from last year’s NCHSAA Championships and a team ranked in the nation’s top 20. The exciting action mixed with the rain and ice made for some interesting photos. Here are a few of my favorites from that cold, wet day.
