First game of the season, I was a little out of practice, but I did grab a few good ones

Here is Maddy, with broke thumb and all

Wowsers! Well done! Such a huge step up from your earliest shots... it's been a pleasure watching you get better and better. :)

Really nice set dude! How are you tracking? automatically, or by moving the focusing square around?

moving the focusing square around

I need some real practice, learn the back button. I missed a lot of shots because of my lack of sports photography

Missing lots is part of it but looks like you're improving big time.

Back button is cake (and I do it with my thumb) but won't it interfere w/moving the focusing squares - how do you move those on your camera? with your thumb?

I wonder if assigning a button on the front of the camera and using the RING FINGER to move the focus point around is a possibility. That way, ring finger moves the focus squares, thumb locks the focus and index triggers the shutter. Hmmm
