As many know, we are avid supporters of Penn State Men’s Soccer. The goalkeeping program is the recipient of the Mack Brady Fund in memory of our son and I am the “faculty partner.” All of that means I attend most of the games with camera in hand. As of a few weeks ago that camera is now a Nikon D810.
I was in the stands for the second round of NCAA playoffs called the “College Cup” in soccer, versus Syracuse and I was armed with my Nikkor 300mm f4 (the older version, not the newer version). Even so, I had a fairly good angle. Our lads lost but our keeper Andrew Wolverton had an incredible game, blocking 8 difficult shots. Connor Maloney scored on a PK and for a time quieted the 1500+ strong Orange crowd. Our Bhoys in Blue ended up losing 2-1, but it was a hard fought match and I could not be more proud of this great group of young men. Watch for some of these men to be playing in the MLS! Especially our Mack Brady Keeper, Wolvey.

On Sunday October 21, 2012 PSUWSOC played Michigan to a 1-1 tie and secured their 15th consecutive Big Ten title!

Fortunately Penn State’s University Park campus is a beautiful location, with lots of wonderful opportunities for photos. This was just a quick snapshot, really, on the way to a meeting.
I mostly take pictures of my son’s soccer games and rarely post those publicly, only when I have permission from the other parents (as with “Teammates”) but being at Penn State there is a LOT of sport to see. We often attend softball games in the spring. Beard Field is a wonderful ballpark and we can sit right down by the bench, behind the on deck circle.
