"Oh! I have slpped the surly bonds of earth..." opens a poem by John Gillespie Magee, Jr. The entire poem was used in an Air Force film featuring fighter jets in flight.
Tryouts for the Outlaws include slipping the bonds of earth. Jumping. Can you jump? How high? How far?
But does all this jumping have any place in football? I was a lineman. I couldn't jump. Never had to. There's jumping in basketball. But football?
Well, following are some of my favorite photos. In another post, I'll talk about the joy of action photography. For now, just enjoy my flying football players.
