I try to get photos with the following criteria

In order of importance.
Action (THE sports action, a hit, a strike, a head butt, etc.)
Focus (Any unintended blur is an automatic disqualifier UNLESS the action is just too good)
Face (Can you see the face or even better the eyes)
Football (Or whatever sports object defines the sport, in soccer it's the soccer-ball in kendo it's the Shinai or sword)

Think of each point as a star, two items like action and focus is two star; action focus, face is three stars, etc. To give some perspective I try for 3star, and very rarely get 4 star.

Here's three for you consideration

Keep Fighting
The runners intensity and the defenders determination to stop him can be seen in their eyes

Eyes Downfield
Even as he's being tackled the quarterback's eyes are on the receivers and the ball is being thrown.

Blind Side
The receiver is watching his quarterback while not seeing the intense defender bearing down on him

I contend a photographer is not looking for the perfect picture. They are looking for an audience
