Choosing the right photo: Dillon High School falls to Central in the 2A State Championships

Last Saturday one of our local teams played in the high school football sate championships. Unfortunately, they lost, but it was a good run. They ended the season 15-1. You can find the story  by @loubezjakfmnhere.

It seemed like Dillon followed the same pattern every game. They’d score early and keep scoring. In the last half they’d start to wear down, but with too little time for the opposing team to make a comeback.

Didn’t happen this time. An interception from Central in the last few minutes cost them the state title. It would have been their third in a row.

I had to decide on one picture to represent the day. Something appropriate but raw. Something that showed the pain of losing, but also how far they’d come.  I chose this one for the front page.

See the photos that didn’t make the cut after the jump…

Which would you have chosen?
