Focus on Woodbury: Sunset Over Woodbury Football

A dad in the bleachers captured this striking photo of a Friday night under the lights.
This photo earned an honorable mention in the events category in Woodbury Magazine’s 2015 Focus on Woodbury Photo Contest.

The annual East Ridge High School Raptors versus Woodbury High School Royals football game traditionally draws a huge crowd to cheer on the crosstown rivals. It’s a much-anticipated event in Woodbury, alternating between the two high school’s home fields. In October 2014, the matchup took place at East Ridge’s Raptor’s Nest on a gorgeous fall evening, where Scott Zuehlke snapped this photo.

“My wife and I had two sons playing for Woodbury High that night,” says Zuehlke, an operations service manager for Delta Airlines and 26-year Woodbury resident. “The photo was taken with my iPhone.” The sky was tinged orange by that fall’s Canadian wildfires.
