“The House That Howard Built” Opens

Before the very first game back in 2001, Owlpix was documenting Coach Schnellenberger’s efforts to bring football to Florida Atlantic University. 125 games and nearly 13,000 photos later, Owlpix had eight photographers shooting thousands of photos at last Saturday’s historic event. After the editing process we ended up with over 1100 images! You can view the work of photographers JC Ridley, Ralph Notero, Eric Espada and Jessica Marshall here, and the work of our four student shooters who shot our Fan Pix here.
