Although both the girls and boys Floyd County High School Buffaloes basketball teams were eliminated in regional playoffs this season, the teams gave me as a spectator, FCHS alumnus and media photographer a thrilling season along with the many fans who followed the games from start to end.

On the boys’ side, the loss at Dan River High School on February 26 meant the last time I would photograph the two starting seniors in regular games — Caleb Tanner, now the Virginia High School League’s boys career scoring champion, and Preston Neukirch, who led the team in assists and was a leading three-point scorer in several games.

Both will be missed when the Buffaloes take the floor at the beginning of the 2014-15 season and their athletic prowess will be missed by my cameras.

Thanks Caleb and Preston.  It was a pleasure photographing both of you throughout your impressive high school careers.
