Congratulations! You should be stoked!!
I like #1 and #4 - clean and captured peak action. #4 works great with player in mid-air and plenty of determination on his face.
#1 is a moment in the balance - will he break free or will the tackle stick.
Nice set.

I like all four of these. The action being captured is exciting and well done. If I really had to pick, I would say #1 and #2. This is for very small reasons against #3 and #4, though....in #3 no one is facing you directly in the way that they are in #1 and #2. It's a small detail, but I'm all about the faces in sports photos. in #4, The emptiness of the stands in the background take away from the excitement of the game. The action itself is great, and I know there's nothing you can do about the background, so it's nothing on you just a personal thing.

Overall, very exciting set of photos. You definitely deserve that cover, as well!

-Hank
