Skorpion Picture Day

Sunday, 9 June, 2019

Today was all about photographs in equal parts from last night's Wild Card Playoff game's 13-7 win over the Palermo Sharks and today's team photos.

Let's start with some new pictures from our second Palermo Sharks game of the season.

Pre-game with Offensive Coordinator
Omar Passera

What an incredible job he has done with our team this year!

OFF mosquito repellant

Skorpion Field has a real problem with these blood sucking insects at this time of year.

I got ZERO bites last night!

Federica and Santa Barbara getting
ready to take stats of the game

 Pre-game roster check with
the referees

No ringers allowed!

DL Ceo and RB/RB Coach Bumba

It was supposed to be red smoke

DE Davide Vuolo won the coveted
Game Hammer Award

OT Niko Moruzzi plays the game
all out with tremendous passion

LB/K/P Stefano Granelli is a candidate
for the Game Hammer every week

GREAT player.

The Opening Kickoff

Federico Gomiero on the First Hit
on this Kickoff . . .

. . . soon joined by Biondo Bulgheroni
to bring down the Sharks' return man
at the 15 yard line!

Watch that leg, Mister!

The Pit

Post-game talk

Today was Team Picture Day, typically one of any coaches least favorite but quite necessary events of any season.

I opted to hit Alessandro from our
U13 Flag team in the Flat while
our photographers got organized

 One shot of all of the Skorpions,
both Flag and Tackle versions

 A different look of the same
subject matter

When we were finally finished, it was back to the Villa Skorpion II to start working on HUDL to breakdown the Sharks before moving on to our preparations for the Italian DII Quarter-Final Playoff Game against the second seeded Cernusco Daemons (7-1) on the road at 9:00 p.m. next Saturday.

No rest for the weary.
