Bodies scattered everywhere. A loose ball. Momentum in the balance. It’s moments like these that can determine a game, and on Saturday, determined a Missouri Valley Conference title. But you almost knew who was going to wind up with the ball — Creighton’s Grant Gibbs, who has been the last man standing in many a scrum in his two years with the Jays. And there he and CU were Saturday, leaving Wichita State and the rest of the Valley feeling the pain. MATT MILLER/THE WORLD-HERALD
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.
