Scoopshot of the week

USA TODAY High School Sports, in conjunction with Scoopshot, launched a photography series in which anyone could see their work published here. Scoopshooters were asked to send entertaining, high school sport-related photos that addressed each week’s Scoopshot task and we featured the photos each week that we thought best completed the task. Click any photo to view all the submissions to this Scoopshot task.

Beaumont vs Citrus Hill in California makes the cut this week. Jessica Wordward provided a strong action shot of Gustavo Solis carrying the ball high and tight on a big run out of the backfield. Citrus Hill won this game, but, every game is full of moments where you can almost feel and hear the thrill of the moment as blockers push defenders off the ball and turf is flying up while a runner dodges a diving tackle. Jessica has contributed some great Scoopshots already, and I’ve seen some quality submissions from Britni Hendrix and Manola Secaira.

There are some additional great shots of the Bellarmine vs Olympia game in the gallery. As you can see in that article, a specific Scoopshot assignment was sent out to get a lot of quality game coverage photos.

Keep up the great work.

Congratulations to our Scoopshooter of the Week!
