When I first started photographing and interviewing Outlaws, I asked "Why?" Why would women play football?
I've been working on another project for my friends at Austin Mobility Solutions. I'm learning that I do much better shooting action sports. Like at the Outlaws practice on Saturday, March 31.
With opening day a week away the players are having to get serious. The March 31 practice was the week after the Waco scrimmage. I'm probably seeing something not really there but I have to believe player's view of the practice had to change just a little after testing skills on a field with an opponent.
The receiver above is focused. Concentrating. I wonder if she is imagining real-game conditions. Someone in a different colored uniform is going to try to get between me and the ball, and going to try to knock the ball loose if I do catch it. But the one on the left is smiling. This is fun! Serious fun. Doesn't that describe football?
