Fall Sports are finally here and

athletes have attacked the start of

the season with an obvious intensity.

We have enjoyed seeing the facial

expressions of athletes so far and

hope that continues throughout the

season. Our ability to photograph

these events, and produce a monthly

magazine is completely dependent

on picture sales and the businesses

that advertise with us. We would

love to add pages to the magazine,

so please be sure to thank our

current advertisers, and encourage

other businesses to advertise as well.

Then, be sure to purchase prints of

your favorite athletes so we can

continue to pay photographers to be

at your events.

START TO THE SEASON!

Bad Axe opened the season at Harbor Beach where

rushing touchdowns, 146 yards of passing, and threw 2

touchdown passes as well.

Week 2, Bad Axe traveled to

Cass City, where Keaton ran

for 99 yards and a rushing

touchdown.

Coach Kal Pokley

said “Keaton has been

outstanding in his first two

games this season. He is

smart, hard working, and a

team player. He is literally

everything you could ask for

in a student athlete”.

and hopes to own his own business someday.
