Back-to-Back State Champs

I had the pleasure of teaming up with Hutman Media to film the high school championship game: Paonia vs. Buena Vista.  For such a small town, people take high school football pretty seriously here.  Watching the game, I could see why.  The Paonia football team was unstoppable, tromping Buena Vista 21-7 to win the state championship for the 2nd year in a row.

Although I'm not much of a sports videographer, the FS700 makes it easy to pose as one.  I hooked my Canon 70-200 f2.8 is ii to a 2x extender, and had an absolute blast shooting these football players from the sideline at 240 fps.  Thanks to Todd Sheets for bringing me in on the shoot, and to Adam Smith for editing this fun highlights video.
