Pigskin Roundup Spring Jam Extra Scenes 2012


I wanted to show off some extra scenes from the Pigskin Roundup Spring Jam at Burgess-Snow Field.  Scroll to the bottom of the post for the photos of all four games.  On day one we had some military helicopters fly around the stadium and even land nearby!  It was a cool sight!

And on day two I took some great photos of the sunset.  A storm delayed the games for a little bit and the clouds provided a great scene!

Plus who could not resist some other great photos of the event!

Pigskin Roundup Spring Jam: Game Four 2012


The final game of the Pigskin Roundup Spring Jam featured two strong teams who showed their strengths throughout the game.  Walter Wellborn and Alexandria both had strong years last Fall and after watching them both play.  I am sure that both teams will have strong seasons this Fall.  The final score was 28-28 and ended at a tie.  Enjoy the photos below and Pigskin Roundup will start its ninth season August 31st at 10:30pm on TV 24.
