The job of capturing the action on the field often means student photographers sacrifice a Friday night in the bleachers. One pair of Crockett Cougars has spent the entire football season snapping pictures from the sideline.
When the Crockett Cougars take the field, Patrick Devarney is there with a camera in hand.
The senior says the key to getting great shots is part position and part luck.
"Sometimes it's actually a lot of running and very action oriented. You have to be in the right spot at the right time and sometimes the action can be on the other side of the field in which case you're not going to get anything," he said.
Class Historian Megan Potersnak tries to stay a step ahead of the players on game night.
"Just be where the action is coming so you don't have to run after it, so it can be nice and clear," she said. "I basically go to all the events where seniors can be present and just take pictures."
She hopes she can provide quality photos so the class of 2012 can look back on their final year of high school.
