Nebraska Danger

I remember when I met world renowned photojournalist Bill Frakes at a Cheyenne Frontier Days rodeo┬áin 2007. Of all of his great images I told him the photo of the football helmet suspended in midair was one of my favorites he had taken. He responded “which one”? I didn’t realize he had more than one and for myself I didn’t have any, until now. In the first game of the 2018 IFL season Cedar Rapids running back Tyler Thomas lost his helmet on a tackle. If you look closely you’ll see the mouthpiece is still in his mouth.

Cedar Rapids running back Tyler Thomas loses his helmet after getting jarred by Nebraska Danger defensive lineman Xzavie Jackson and defensive back Najee Bright during second quarter action at the Heartland Event Center Friday night.
