Celebrating 100 years of Baldwinsville High School football, the B’ville Bees varsity football team ran over the Christian Brothers Academy (CBA) by a score of 30-12 in the Carrier Dome on the Syracuse University campus to claim the New York State Section III Football Championship.
Running behind a dominating offensive line, Malik Burks (1) ran for 243 yards on 43 rushing attempts and scored 3 touchdowns. The Bees defense shut down the CBA passing attack in the second half who lead at halftime 12-8. As an alum of Baldwinsville, I was proud of the team and how they came from behind to win.

Since this game ended, I have found out the Syracuse University Football program is NOT interested in Malik Burks. Malik is a senior and is being actively recruited by three other Big East football schools. This astounded me. The current SU Football coach is on record as saying he would do his best to recruit the most talented New York high school players. Yet, here’s the number 3 running back in high school football in the entire nation right in SU’s backyard and they are not interested? If I was the SU coach, I would not only recruit Malik Burks, I would offer to take the number 44 out of retirement to do so.
Amazing how self-possessed that young man looks at the mic. High school football is an entirely different animal than it was when I was young. Or maybe I just didn’t see it the same way.
You certainly capture sport shots. Someday, you bet, some day I will get a lens similar to the one you have. Will I take such a good photo, not too sure, but would have lots of fun trying.
I’ve not tried shooting at a sporting event, this seems like lots of fun, and great shots in the photo gallery.
