This season has been quite a ride. Here are some of my most favorite photos from the 2016 Purdue Football season.
EASTERN KENTUCKY: 45-24
The season started out on a high with a 45-24 win over Eastern Kentucky.
The following week, Cincinnati came to town and gave us our first of many big losses of the season.
The outlook was bleak for Purdue Football, road-tripping with Dave Wegiel out to this game. Purdue was on the road again, this time in Illinois after falling 50-7 to a good Maryland team. But this game was by far my favorite of the season.
Getting the Cannon back had to be the highlight of this season. I am glad I took Dave up on the idea of making the trip, we made some great photos that day. You can see his shots from that game here.
’67 Rose Bowl team returns to West Lafayette.
Notre Dame vs Stanford: 17-10
I had the privilege of shooting in David’s place for the ND/Standford game in mid-October. The atmosphere there was entirely different to any other sporting event I have attended before. Also, the amount of light there for night games is incredible.
My final game of the season finished with Wisconsin.
And to cap it off, I had the extreme honor of photographing a former Boilermaker star, current NFL player, and Super Bowl Champion: Drew Brees.
It’s been fun Purdue Football, I’ve come out the other side a better sports shooter and next season starts off running vs Ohio the night of Friday, September 8th. See you there.
