1,000 Words: Fierce Competition


Pictured here cousins Jordan, Austin and Steel.  I took this photo at Central Catholic High School in the fall of 2004.  We were in between games for youth football.  This shot is really a treasure because it seem like yesterday that these boys looked liked this and yet they barely resemble this image today.  Just another example of how the passage of time can really play tricks on your brain.  I remember these smiles and the antics behind them very well however. It's also a rare shot because of their physical sizes.  It's difficult to tell, but it looks as though Austin and Steel are pretty close to the same size.  (That didn't last for long.)  The youngest (Austin) would eventually grow to be the biggest of the trio.
