7th Grade Wolves Basketball 11/27/2012

I decided to shoot my nephew playing basketball tonight.  It was their first game as Wolves so all the players were pumped up!  They fought hard and Ethan played very well, especially in the clutch times toward the end; yet, they lost by one point.  Good effort guys!  You’ll get them next time!

  • Sigma 70-200 F2.8
