Globe photographers share their most memorable pictures of 2020

In a show of sympathy, Lamar's Jake Polodna (right) consoles St. Pius X quarterback Jack Mosh as the clock clicks down on their Class 2 state championship earlier this month at Blair Oaks High School in Wardsville. Globe | Laurie Sisk"Searching for that perfect celebration photo as the clock wound down, my eyes were drawn instead to Polodna, who paused his team celebration to comfort the other guy after a hard-fought 6-3 state championship win," Sisk said. "Polodna's actions touched me deeply and made me realize we could all exercise empathy on a more regular basis. I've probably shot more impressive sports photos, but my favorite are those that take sports beyond the game and into the hearts and minds of the competitors."
