It’s football season, y’all! Advocate photographer Ben Hager shot Friday night’s District 9-5A opener between Lake Highlands High and Samuell at the Boneyard. Click the photos to make them bigger.

This Wildcat win breaks a two-game losing streak and evens their overall record to 2-2.

Ben will periodically shoot photos during games and matches of various sports throughout the season, which we’ll feature right here on the blog.

Lake Highlands football goes on the road this Friday to W.T. White for a 7:30 p.m. matchup with the 2-2 Longhorns, where he expects to take a lot more photos, so check the blog within a few days afterward for the shots. He won’t just be shooting the players — get your own game face on, because he’ll be taking crowd shots, too.
