A photo gallery beaming with Hilltopper pride.
Ward 2 Councilman Patrick Hurley ( @PatrickHurley on Twitter ) is a part time shutterbug. When he turns his camera lens on Investors Bank Field during a game his Summit pride shows, naturally. "I know football so well (and am familiar with Summit's play calling)," he told Patch, "I am often in a good spot to get the best shot." He says photography is one of the ways he stays grounded. Hurley has shared some highlight shots from the early part of this football season. Check out his photos attached to this article. The Hilltopper's next game will be a test against local rivals Cranford. Maybe Hurley will be on the sidelines to snap another Summit win. Summit vs. Cranford, Friday, Sept. 21 at 7p.m. Cranford Memorial Field
