Picture Perfect

By Coleman Swierc

KILGORE, TEXAS (KLTV) - With every shot Stacey Kennedy captures the memories.

"I love it, I will spend all day on pictures if I have to."

Six months ago, she picked up a camera, along the way, freezing the images of a dominating season.

"Sometimes I miss things that happen," said Kennedy, who takes pictures of the Kilgore soccer team, "But when I see the pictures, I can make it all come together, and it is worth every hour I spend."

"She is good, real good," said senior Oscar Davila, "She will upload the pictures to Facebook after every game, it is such a great way for us to be able to keep these memories."

The Bulldogs continue to play on, and Stacey Kennedy will be there, as she has been, every game this season.

"To do what she does, to take pictures of every kid that plays, and not ask for a cent in compensation, it really speaks to what kind of great person she is," said Kilgore head coach Michael Bradshaw.

"I just do it for the kids, I love taking pictures of the kids."

And with hundreds of shots, there is always one that sticks out.

"Our goalie was sprawled out, and a kid was right on top of him, and Corey had the ball and I got the picture of him on the ground, with the ball, right before the kid kicked at it," said Kennedy, "That is definitely my favorite."

"She is awesome, when I saw that picture, I was amazed," said Corey Thomas, the Kilgore goalkeeper, "She gets all the action shots, and that one is definitely my favorite too."

But for Kennedy, there is still one magical image, that hasn't yet been captured.

"To be able to put them in a "V" with a state trophy in front of them, that would be the best picture off all."

And that would be the best way, to end a picture perfect season.

    On a hot, humid East Texas Monday, Jake Arledge sat and visited with Angelina Baseball Coach Jeff Livin. After the morning talk the two would leave the AC cooled office and venture into the heat to look for an apartment. Five years ago, Arledge would have never thought his life would bring him to Lufkin.
