Israel Football



Israel has an American football league, the Israel Football League.  As a member of the league's media unit, I photograph at some of the games.  Here are a few of my favorite shots.

Two officials take a breather from the 2013 Israel Bowl to play with this puppy near the sideline.

"Impressionist Tackle"
Maale Adumim, Israel, 2016

I sometimes like the effect of slow shutter speed.  Note even the official in the background.











"Hanukkah Bowl"

Before a game during Hanukkah, players light the Hanukkah candles.











"Touchdown Catch"

"Kneeling during Injury"
Jerusalem, Israel, 2014
***

During an IFL game, if a player gets hurt, both teams kneel in respect and prayer for the injured player.  By the way, in this photo, also note the female official (2nd official from left).











"Jerusalem Lion(ess)"

The Mascot of the Jerusalem Lions.
