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.

    Red Zone Rundown: Lufkin looks to get past first round playoff hurdle

    Jackson is back for Lufkin.Jackson is back for Lufkin.

    Like Longview, Lufkin is always talented. Before the Panthers begin District 12-6A action, they'll play a loaded East Texas schedule featuring the Lobos in week 1, followed by Nacogdoches and John Tyler. Normally a 7 and 4 campaign would be considered a success, but not in Panther nation. In fact, despite making the playoffs every year, Lufkin hasn't advanced past the first round since 2012.

    Our Red Zone Rundown continues with the other two Class 6A programs in East Texas. In District 11-6A with John Tyler and Tyler Lee, who we featured Monday night, Longview figures to challenge for the league title in 2017. In fact, the Lobos and Lions shared the district championship a year ago. It's no secret, Longview is used to winning and it does so by running the football and playing sound defense.
