The 2019 season in photos

As Photo Editor I have had the pleasure of working with a great core of PSP photographers, including Daniel Gajdamowicz, Earl Gardner, Rob Simmons, and Marjorie Elzey. We have all contributed to this year’s collection of Union game day photos — here’s just a small sample from each of those games. Thank you for all of your support and let us know what you think of our work and if we missed any of your favorites!
