   I love my job...it's been 50 years since my first photograph was published...it has taken me most everywhere you can imagine, but it's working with talented young people that has to be my favorite. They are always filled with surprises and challenges. There are so many amazing kids out there that deserve some rewards and recognition for their talents, efforts, and hard work.

   Yes, I'm on Facebook as many of you know I post links to all the game and event photos there and here on this website and love to meet new people and make new friends...so with that said, we are going to get this new year and new project underway as soon as possible. I am not here just to go to the games and shoot pics hoping you will purchase some prints but I also provide the school with any images they might need along the way and I support the teams, school, programs, and other things as much as I possibly can. I am a big believer in paying it back, paying it forward, or simply doing everything I can to help out.

Recent Events Captured.....

 

 

   Well sadly the Lady Ducks season is over....last night at Monmouth College the lady Ducks lost to Kankakee's McNamara HS. I'm not going to mention anymore about this mystery....how does a Kankakee team state ranked in the Class 3A Division all year end up playing in the Monmouth Class 2A Division of the IHSA? A rich private Roman Catholic school plays by totally different rules as everyone else, but I'm not going to ask about that anymore and why it is allowed to happen....Go ahead, Google them for yourself cause i promised i wouldn't mention it anymore wink emoticon i'll just show you pics from game last night....

Lady Ducks Vs Tremont Sectional Championship

..................................................................................................................................................

 

 It's that part of the season when anything can happen and usually does...The 2014-2015 PrairieLand Conference Championship, Class 2A Regional Championship winners have both been won by our Havana Lady Ducks and the official Duck Face photo has been taken with the hardware. Now, right after you all look at the pics of Friday night's win over Illini West, we will be getting ready for the Sectional Game in Aledo at 7:00 PM. I understand that there will be a fan bus for the students so let's get behind our great team and coaches and let them know just how much we appreciate their efforts and hard work....let's stop flirting with these post seasons and take this thing to Bloomington and plaster a new Duck Face all over this state !!!! See all of you in Aledo tomorrow !!!! Friday night's game photos are at the gallery link below:

   Wednesday night in Carthage for the Class 2A Regional games found the Lady Ducks taking on Midwest Central....The Lady Ducks as the Prairie Land Conference winner took the first game and now on Friday night head back to Carthage for the Regional Battle with Illini West on their home court...historically this team has been a tough opponent for the Lady Ducks in post season, but i am sure that this team of girls and Hall of Fame Coach, Jerry Wilson will definitely be ready for this one... So if you are looking for a Friday night full of some exciting and hard-played basketball head over to Carthage and cheer on the Lady Ducks. Lady Ducks Fan Page

The game photos from Wednesday night's game vs Midwest Central are edited and posted in their own little gallery just waiting for you to take a look... See you in Carthage in a few hours....

  It was the 4th Grade Boys facing their most feared opponents of the season, the 4th Grade Girls... Saturday afternoon at the Havana Park District Gym the girls put on a final charge in the remaining final minutes to take over the dwindling lead...it was a tough fight for the win but the girls came up only 3 points short of tying the score....great game everyone...some great basketball...
The game photos are finished and posted in their special gallery just waiting for everyone to come see them...have fun !!!

   Hard to believe that it's Senior Night 2015 for the Senior Lady Ducks already....Most of these girls i have watched grow up, become awesome young ladies, and yes, with the guidance of a great coach they can also add great basketball players to that list. I know that all of the rest of the Senior Lady Ducks will join me in a special shout to one of their group they have all come to love as one of their own....this year Sara Luehsen left her home in Germany and came to this small Midwestern school as an exchange student...man talk about your first day at school experience, wow...Sara had never seen a basketball let alone a game of girls basketball being played...it could not have been an easy task, with lots of time that it would have been easier to just walk away, but like the rest of this team and their coach, that is just not Sara's style. Sara has worked very hard as a Lady Duck tradition dictates, and not only became a part of this years team but also has become a real Lady Duck with some heads up plays on the courts as the team enters the post season play this coming week. I can only hope that Sara's parents, Heinz and Anke Lueschen and all her friends back home have been able to follow some of her games in the game photos here making her way is such a strange new sport of Lady's Basketball. Two other great German students have also come to HHS this year, but more about them later, I can only say what a great program i think this is and what an opportunity it must be for these great students. Folks like Sara's Host Family, Deborah and Tim Urish make these amazing things happen.... Sara, it has been great to be able to capture your very fast learning curve in this new challenge, and all you have accomplished here with this great team as one of it's members...being a Lady Duck and a respected member of this team is not an easy accomplishment so I have to say CONGRATULATIONS for an amazing accomplishment...in my book, you can play on my team any day!!!!
The photos of the Senior Night game against North Fulton and all the festivities are now edited and posted at this link below...

 Saturday there was a lot of basketball going on at the Havana Park District Gym, I stopped by in the late afternoon to catch parts of a couple games...The game photos are all edited and posted in the gallery link below. The HPD Gym is a bit difficult to shoot in due to the many different Kelvin temperatures of the lighting there but some tweaking helps a bit....
