    More NCAA D1 Football from Michigan

    This past Saturday I expereienced what is most likely my last game on the field at Michigan Stadium. Once again I was shooting for the ROTC Color Guard and following the flag raising I was free to live the fantasty of a pro sports photographer and photograph the game as well. The following is a selection of shots from the afternoon, which was Military Appreciation Day at the Big House.

    First for the flag raising/National Anthem festivities:

    "Challenger" is a nonreleasable Bald Eagle that flew in during the National Anthem and is on final approach to land on the 10 yard line.

    Followed closely by a flyover by the Black Diamond Jet Team

    And now to the game:

    Kicker Matt Wile getting ready for the opening kickoff

    Quarterback Devin Gardner throwing from outside the pocket

    RB Derrick Green broke free for a big gain

    ...Then ran the ball in for his first TD a few snaps later

    Which brings us to halftime and yet another set of flyovers by the Black Diamond Jet Team to accompany the Michigan Marching Band's Salute to America halftime show celebrating the 200th year of the Star Spangled Banner.

    Scroll down for the second half.

    Gardner scrambled for a short gain

    And made a nice throw to the tight end

    Reciever Jehu Chesson in the end zone after the reception

    Jake Butt making a catch in his first game back from a knee injury in spring practices.

    Derrick Green running for his second TD of the day

    Backup QB Shane Morris came in late in the game to get a bit of experience

    As did RB Justice Hayes

    At this point the final whistle had blown and it was time for the flag to come down

    Thanks for looking.
