Local Artist Earns Photographer of the Year With This Photo
Though the high school football season has yet to begin, the Temple Wildcats are already winning something in April. Local photographer Joe Olivares won Friday Night Football Magazine's Photographer of the Year.
The Temple High photo titled, "Showdown at Sundown" won with 41.3% of the votes, which totaled 3,054 votes out of 7,396. Second place was a touchdown shot of a Harlandale High tight end diving into the end zone in San Antonio.
Joe put out a "Thank You" on Facebook when he found out he had won.
The contest was never about me, it was always about a picture in time of some boys in a football uniform that they consider a privilege to wear.
