Week in Pictures: The CWS arrives in Omaha

The College World Series has captured the attention of Omaha in the World-Herald Week in Pictures: June 11-17, 2012.

South Carolina's Nolan Belcher does a backflip, what has become a pregame ritual, to pump up his team before its opener against Florida. The Gamecocks, who rallied for a victory Saturday, have won 22 straight NCAA tournament games. The last such loss for the two-time defending national champions was their opener in the 2010 College World Series. MATT MILLER/THE WORLD-HERALD

About Matt Miller

I’ve been shooting Cornhuskers, cowboys and common folks at the Omaha World-Herald since September 2002. I was lucky enough to catch the end of the Tom Osborne era while in college at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln. Any day I get to spend in Nebraska's Sandhills is a good day. If nice light and people (a rare sight in western Nebraska) are tossed into the mix, it’s even better. Shooting photos for the World-Herald offers several challenges: the repetition of sporting events, handling my own feelings at emotional events like shootings and funerals, and handling the wide range of weather we cover in the Great Plains. I’d be happy to share more, but you’ll have to buy me a drink, first. You can see a larger selection of my work at my website.
