Leading Off / by Guillermo Hernandez Martinez

Leading Off The most rewarding moment of my internship at Sports Illustrated happened this week, as one of my photographs was selected for the Leading Off section on the digital version of the magazine. The photo was made at the Bucknell vs Fordham college football game at Fordham's Rose Hill campus in the Bronx this past Saturday, and depicts Bucknell's quarterback Brandon Wesley (from Plano, Texas!) passing as he is pressured by Jake Rodrigues of the Rams, with Keating Hall in the background.

I made this photo with the invaluable help of Marguerite Schropp Lucarelli and Chris Chambers, as well as Miguel Saavedra for taking the hit with his own photo, and finally Nate Gordon and the team who edits Leading Off for choosing it among thousands of other photos out there.

You can check the photo out on the digital version of the magazine, on (virtual) newsstands today!
