Entry Description

It's the start of the 2014 USC football season and the Sarkisian era as head coach. Star quarterback, Cody Kessler, runs the play during the USC vs. Fresno State game on August 30. This photograph was taken on my first football photo assignment. First time stepping on the field, first time I fell in love with sport photography.
