    good action

    I have photographed a couple regular youth football games

    couple of tips -
    get low to the ground and try to get the sun at your back

    (with a 60D and original 100-400)

    Thanks for the input. As I was looking at these shots I was thinking that getting lower would help eliminate some of the problems with exposure and focus that I was experiencing from the bright light coming off the turf. The unfortunate part was they were only playing in one direction so was not able to get any front lit shots. But good points thanks again.

    Besides getting lower - I recommend shooting portrait orientation. A good 90% of football has more vertical component to an image than horizontal. In your fist shot, you've got very good timing but 2/3 of the frame is uninteresting dead space to either side of the play. The ref doesn't really add to the story. So, even if you choose to shoot originally in landscape this shot is much better cropped portrait. Fill the frame with the action. As you get used to it, you'll get better results if you fill the frame IN CAMERA. That takes practice because you have a much more myopic view of the field and you have to overcome your fear of missing the shot. But start with just cropping tightly. And heck, since it's on the internet there isn't even a need to stick to conventional aspect ratios in a crop.
