I like to say that Reggie Bush is flipping out in this photo. Two plays before Bush scored on this long run against UCLA, I was at the line of scrimmage, and I thought, What if Reggie breaks a long run? So I bolted to the end zone, and lo and behold, he broke off this touchdown run. And I was fortunate that his teammate was raising his arms, signaling touchdown. As fellow photographer Walter Iooss says, "Sometimes luck favors the prepared."
