12.13.11 – Federal Hocking-Eastern
A few days before leaving Athens for the holidays I shot a pretty intense high school basketball game between conference rivals Federal Hocking and Eastern. The game was especially intense because it was the first meeting between the two schools after Eastern’s head coach of 13 years transferred over to coach Federal Hocking this year. The crowd was about evenly split between Eagle and Lancer fans and the game ended up living up to the fever pitch both sides brought. Federal Hocking was able to pull off the win thanks to a last second, buzzer beating lay in by Federal Hocking’s star center Chris Saylor.
