Let take a trip to a Delta State Football Game! GO FIGHTING OKRA!
If you didn't already know, I work for sports communications of Delta State University. With an All-Access pass to every game in tow, I am required to record the participation of every young athlete that plays.
As I arrived to the field the vastness of the bleachers was a little daunting. Knowing that I had to make my way to the top did not help my fear of heights.
The backside was even more impressive.
I stopped by the athletics department to gather my thoughts.
As I made my way up I found myself breathless by both the view of the field and the steep climb up.
I took some time to regain my composure and snap this beauty of the some players preparing.
The Mississippi Delta is a vast flat land of mostly agricultural businesses and forestry. It is a great place to both live and work.
The enemy prepares for the brawl.
Our boys rally in full force; ready to take on their opponent!
The Delta State marching band shows their support at the halftime show. A video of some of our sounds of the delta will be available shortly.
What seems to be a forest fire in the distance is only a hard working farmer burning his field so that it will regrow even more fertile.
Having played well into the night, our team was victorious 28 - 21.
I hope you've enjoyed this trip to the Delta and there will be many more photo shoots in the near future.
