2019 Husky Football: Utah 33, Washington 28

Okay, so I missed the Oregon game. No, I’m not too sad about that. Despite the fact that I haven’t been around Husky Football in over a month, I have had some UW moments lately, which I’ll share before we get to today’s photos.

The reason I wasn’t here for the Duck loss is because I was flying back from London, where I attended the Wildlife Photographer of the Year awards. Though this event was strictly tied to my nature photography and not sports, I was sure to represent the W in a subtle way at least.

And was it a coincidence that our emcee for the night, noted wildlife photographer and filmmaker Chris Packham, was wearing a purple and gold tie? I think not. I did compliment him on that, by the way.

So I had a good excuse for my absence. And before I was able to get back to Husky Stadium, we also had to deal with Halloween. This year we took our son (who is two-and-a-half) for his first real trick-or-treating outing. Since our own neighborhood stinks for this, we chose a random neighborhood to the south, driving around until we saw families going door to door. We managed to fit in a solid hour with our son, who by the end of it almost got all of his “Trick or Treats” and “Happy Halloweens” and “Thank Yous” in the right order.

Before turning in, we hit one last house on the corner. A lady opened the door wearing a vintage Husky Cheer outfit. My wife and I mentioned we were in the marching band and she got excited. As we turned to leave, she ran to get her husband… Captain Husky! For the next twenty minutes our boy was singing Bow Down to Washington and the alma mater in the car. A perfect ending to a Halloween night for this Dawg family.


Okay, on to game day photos. It was a lovely autumn day on Montlake, with plenty of fall colors surrounding the stadium.

Unfortunately, an equally sunny start to the game eventually turned into a sour result, as Utah ground down the Huskies on both sides of the ball and prevailed 33-28.

    Nice shots! What’s your kit? I shoot high school football, Canon 1dxmii, 400 2.8 is my primary lens. Love to know how you’re set up. Thanks!

      Tim, I typically have three bodies: 1DXII, 1DX and 1D Mark IV, with a 600mm (my primary big lens which I use for a lot of my nature work), either 100-400mm or 70-200mm (depending on kickoff time) on the 1DX, and either 24-70mm 2.8 or 17-40mm on the 1DIV. If I could afford a 200-400mm, I’d probably use that for football instead of the 600. It could be handy for some of my wildlife work as well, so some day…
