Our Football Photo Shoot Model Finally Earns White HatSep 21st, 2012
When Louisville-based College and High School Official Todd Skaggs helped us out with a photo shoot last year, the shot we used for marketing had Todd wearing a white hat.
Problem was Todd was not a white hat official. For that, the received quite a bit of good-natured ribbing from his colleagues.
This year, Todd is now the white hat on a Kentucky High School crew and was in to grab his KHSAA embroidered cap. We couldn't resist having Todd take a photo next to his likeness. Congrats to Todd on the promotion.
