NFL Draft Day #TBT: Following Vernon Hargreaves' route from Wharton High to UF to the NFL
I am coming up on my four year anniversary of being a photographer at the Tampa Bay Times. One thing you quickly learn after being in this area during the fall is that high school football is king. When our football stars move onto college, they often show loyalty to teams in Florida. Some have even returned to play for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
During my time here, like many other photographers included in this blog post, I have been able to photograph Vernon Hargreaves III during his high school and college football career, and most likely will be able to continue photographing his professional career. I even did a story about his mother being a football mom and a coach's wife for a column I used to do about high school football called, "More Than a Game." That's one of the best parts about our job, being able to document members of a community at different points in their lives.
