Under Armour All America Football 2011


Maxwell Club President Ron Jaworski today announced that Jeff Driskel, from Hagerty High School, Oviedo, Florida, has been selected as the Player of the Year. I recently shot Jeff and ESPN Rise Magazine number one overall recruit Jadeveon Clowney as they practiced for the 2011 Under Armour All America Football game.

Pretty good players for sure…check more images here http://alexmenendez.photoshelter.com/

Seminole Nation






Jimbo Fisher took over at the helm this year when Bobby Bowden was let go as head coach of the Florida State Seminoles. The Seminoles football program has not beaten the Florida Gators in the past 7 seasons. That all changed this year when the Gators strolled into Doak Campbell Stadium and it’s over capacity crowd. With Tim Tebow out of the picture, John Brantley was forced to try his best at quarterback, but unfortunately, it was not the outcome he was hoping for. The Seminoles blew out the Gators 31-7 on ESPN and are now on their way to the ACC Championship. All in all it was a fun game with a great crowd, no rain and temps in the 40’s.

Gators win BCS



My wife Tara and I went to the BCS Championship game between the Florida Gators and the number one ranked Oklahoma Sooners in Miami last week. I had previously shot the Gators winning the National Championship in Arizona against the Ohio State Buckeyes and promised her that when the Gators were in the Big Game again, we would go. Here it is 2 years later and it was time for me to step up to the plate. We were denied media credentials by the Orange Bowl committee, (whatever???), so we went the StubHub route this game and brought the brand new Canon 5dMKII  21 megapixel camera with HD 1080p video capabilities, you can see the test footage of the game here : http://www.vimeo.com/2814383 .

The Gators won, lead by last years Heisman winner Tim Tebow. Lets see what happens next year as he decided to pass on the NFL this year and will return to Gainesville for another whopping NCAA football season.
