11 football galleries from 2012 are back

The PhotoNews football collection grew by several hundred photos today after the 2012 collection that was displayed on our old site just went live this morning. During that season we covered games with St. Thomas More, Unity, SJO, Carterville, Momence, Crete-Monee and several other teams we covered that season. Got a minute or two? Grab a soda and check out the hundreds of photos in 11 galleries here: PhotoNews 2012 Football Collection.
