The opening kickoff. As I said in one of the previous posts, it was pretty windy yesterday. This meant that the teams needed a holder for the kickoffs because the ball kept falling off the tee.
Akron's kickoff returner, Tyler Williams getting tackled as he returns the opening kickoff. If I remember correctly he only made it out to the 18 on this one.
And of course, one of my favorite shots. Since I was sort of in the right position for it, I took it.
Akron's Quarterback Clayton Moore handing the ball off to Jawon Chisholm, their main running back. It seemed like this play was pretty good for Akron.
Dominique White punching in one of his three touchdowns for the day.
The ROTC cannon firing off after that touchdown. This is one of the disadvantages of being down on the field especially when I'm on that side of the field. But it is still cool, although I miss the bell.
Swoop throwing a t-shirt in the crowd.
Alex Gillett right after a fumble. Actually, his ball control was pretty good for the day, as this was the only turnover I remember.
Kody Fulkerson kicking a field goal to make the score 17-10 at the halftime. This was kind of unfortunate because it looked like Eastern was going to roll the Zips.
Yesterday was Band Day, so in addition to the Eastern band there were a bunch of bands from local high schools. They formed EMU as they marched.
Dominique White as he was rushing again. It turns out this was a facemask which tacked another 15 yards to the run.
Dominique White celebrating his 3rd touchdown.
Jawon Chisholm during another run. He ended up getting 122 yards.
And here is Jawon Chisholm throwing the ball during a trick play. He connected with the quarterback for a touchdown.

One of the Akron players. I kind of liked the closeup shot.
Dominique White on another rush. He ended up getting 164 yards for the day.
Alex Gillett pounds it in for another Eastern touchdown.
Clayton Moore as he tries to leap over the pile. He almost made it on this play but he made it on the next play.
