East wins. Bears win. Junior Griffins win.
It was a great weekend for football in Mokena.
The weather was perfect, the fans outstanding, and the action undeniable as our home teams took the field and took down their opponents.
I was lucky to be shooting a few games for the Junior Griffins Homecoming at Main Park on a beautiful Saturday morning. There were big plays and touchdowns. Cheering fans. Half-time dances. And a Homecoming Court hayride.
Photographing in Mokena is my favorite. I love the close-knit community feeling I get when I run into friends while on the job. It makes me feel like a part of something bigger and better when I am photographing kids I know from families I just love.
The best part? You are all my friends… I just may not have met you yet!
Happy football weekend everyone!
