Youth from Omaha, Nebraska after their first football game of the season.
Elizabeth Nelson, 17, waits in the parking lot of Home Depot waiting for her friends after watching their team their first football game of the season, 25 August 2017, Omaha, Nebraska. . Nelson enlisted to the army the summer before her senior year of high school, and will ship out to boot camp three days after she graduates. "I feel like Omaha is not really the place for me. So, I definitely want to move out West if anything. I do kind of want to get the hell out of here."
