Man Upstairs

"Quarterback Robert Griffin III #10 of the Washington Redskins is introduced before playing the Chicago Bears at FedExField on October 20, 2013 in Landover, Maryland."

I always shoot pre-game ceremonies as a way to get my own jitters out before a game.

From being in the tunnel during warmups to photographing players running from the smoke seconds before kick-off - it's a good way to prepare for the game itself.

But I often think how nervous are these superstar athletes?

Like photographers, I'm confident they have their own rituals, superstitions they go through, too. But on the outside they're often cool under pressure. It would be interesting for sure to hear how they feel on the inside before game time.

Much like the aforementioned, this was a favorite frame of Robert Griffin III before his Washington Redskins played the Chicago Bears.
