I was assigned to shoot the UConn vs Rutgers game on Saturday Oct 31, 2009. I thought this moment after the game was so powerful. The Rutgers player holding his head is wide receiver Tim Brown. He made the game winning touchdown in the last seconds of play. UConn was desperate to make the win in honor of their teammate Jasper Howard who was killed two weeks prior but Brown stole it away from them with literally seconds left in the game. The incredible part is that Brown was the childhood friend of Jasper, living just doors away as they grew up. The image shows Brown and his possible realization that he took the win away from his friend Jasper while his teammates celebrate behind him singing their Alma Mater.20091031_UConn_Rutgers_39
