One of the regular things I got to shoot in North Carolina was the NFL’s Panthers. Remind you, it was not like Nebraska ball, where the energy is very high and the stadium bursting with people. (I now realize what an honor it was to learn how to shoot football with such an amazing team and coach in the mid-1990s.) Also, it didn’t help that the season record was horrible: 1 in 15.
Above is Panther Muhsin Muhammad as he runs with the ball with Tampa Bay’s Shelton Quarles getting the tackle in the beginning of the third quarter. Carolina lost 12 to 9.
Below is Rod Smart knocking a punt return from the line of the end zone in the first quarter.
