Monte Wins State

The Montesano High School football team earned a state title after turning around one of their worst early season performances in years. It was a blast to be at the Tacoma Dome documenting the celebration. A personal victory: All season I had been trying in vain to get a shot of coach Terry Jensen and his son, senior quarterback Matthew Jensen. During games, Terry didn't show favoritism and he didn't overcompensate by being extra hard on his son. The two just didn't interact much. So when, in the melee of celebration on the field I saw Matthew searching through the crowd, I hoped he was looking for his father. It was an honor to capture the moment when the two men embraced.
