2012 Mt. Doug Rams Football
September 28, 2012, Victoria, BC - West Van defender Bjorn Knutson resorts to a highly illegal method of tackling Mount Doug Ram running back Mason Swift during the Rams 48-12 win at Royal Athletic Park. Knutson was flagged for facemasking on the play.
Why I Chose This Photo: This image has some classic football elements in it including the stiff arm from Swift, plus the fact that the defender is grabbing the mask fully with two hands and the fact that Swift, a monster of a back, carried the defender another few yards, with him fully suspended off the ground, before being tackled. The sunlight, hitting swift nicely acorss the upper body, also helps.
