Look what David did

Last fall, we started having a little fun by randomly picking a name and doing a search through the PhotoNews image gallery to feature the best photos we had of people with that name. The first name that came to mind was Rick, but we didn't do a good job of making great images of anybody name Rick. Yes, we will work harder on that for 2017.

The next name to try was David and we had a winner. Here are seven Davids competing from various sporting events we've covered in years gone by. You will find all of them here: All the Davids on iphotonews.com.
