Personally, I think there's too much going on. I found it difficult to tell what the focal point should be; the quarterback? the guy facing the ball ready for the snap? the guy at this end of the defence line in white? It's a great photo, and your proportions are all good in your figure work; maybe it would work better in colour.

I have no trouble finding the focal point of the picture because my eyes automatically zero in on the center. I think you did a terrific job of showing two teams on the field during a football game. I feel like I am there. It's good!

its a nice start.  i tend to agree that there is a lot going on.  i might make the background above your players less busy to help remedy all you have going on below since my eye was drawn very quickly to the dark forms above your players instead of being drawn to the center of interest.  i also agree you did a really nice job with proportions, not an easy task with the football gear.  keep it up!
