Game face off...for a moment

Sometimes the human side of athletics peeks through.

Most sports photos are taken to capture the heat of competition or height of action during an important play or game. But, sometimes, a photo is taken that catches a moment when the coach or player breaks their game face and posture, if only for a moment, to express an emotion they are feeling as a result of a well-executed plan, a victory or moment of frustration or disappointment. And once in a while, a lens is pointed in the direction of that moment.



Take a look at the non-competitive side of sports, game face off:

Human face on...

Most sports photography focuses on the game action and what most spectators see during a competition. But sometimes, when the game faces come off, a glimpse of the human side of sports reveals itself.
