About the Book
There are few things more illustrative of cultural Americana than high school football. The Encinal Jets, from Alameda California, epitomize that potent mix of spirit and drive that makes this sport one of the most popular full contact sports in the world.
Photographer Ron Sellers, also from Alameda CA, took a photographic journey with The Encinal Jets during eight of their 13 games. This rich series of black and white photographs captures the grit, determination, emotion, and elation that propelled these young athletes through to the Northern Section State Championships and, ultimately, a perfect 13-0 season.
