Week 5 was the first week in which I got the opportunity to shoot more than one game, thanks to St. Anthony Catholic High School in San Antonio playing their homecoming game on Saturday rather than the traditional Fridays.
St. Anthony plays its home games in the oldest active football field in the state: Lang's Field. Opened in 1910, Lang's Field has been in use by the historic high school continuously for over 100 years. A rather simple stadium, not even equipped with lights for night games, it is nestled in the middle of St. Anthony's campus, surrounded by historic buildings which have housed the school for over 110 years.
Founded in 1903 by the Catholic missionary congregation of the Oblates of Mary Immaculate, St. Anthony's operated as a seminary until 1995, when its management was taken over by the University of the Incarnate Word. It would remain an all-male school until 2003, when female enrollment was first allowed. St. Anthony counts acclaimed film director Robert Rodriguez, of Machete and Sin City fame, as one of its most famous alumni.
