A DraftPics Player Portrait Session
Is like a
Here’s a little story to show the impact of a DraftPics Player Portrait, A few years ago, while my son was playing WMFA, there was a young man who didn’t get much time on the field. And if or when he did… you wouldn’t really know it. Just never made an impact. But as many others on his team were getting their player portraits done with me, his family decided he should get him as well. Of course, we made him look fantastic. Large and in charge. We delivered the prints on Saturday night.. the day before the Sunday Championship game.
Fast forward to late in the 2nd half… With the score between the two teams close, the opposing star running back breaks free for a sure-fire touchdown. Only one guy to beat.. this kid who’s never made a tackle before.
And sure enough, this player stuck his head in there. Sure it was an ugly tackle. But he made the play. Quite potentially a game-saving touchdown! Did this kid make the tackle because he couldn’t get out of the way? Or did he have a renewed sense of confidence to get the job done?
You know which one I’m gonna say it was!
