Steve Sanders' comments:* "*This photo of the stadium was at our home opener. We knew what was going to happen—we were going to have a fireworks display. I had my photographer Chris Donahue go to the top of the eighth level of the stadium and position himself for the picture. We had a great sky that night from the weather and it all kind of came together there with all of the crowd and the red. It really worked with the fireworks and that timing, the American flag jumping off the field. It's just really powerful."
