Astro players and parents say Jason Seikel, the guy hired to take the pictures, failed to deliver the goods and refuses to return any of their phone calls.
“Our parents paid good money, but now they’re not going to get what they paid for,” Astro player Jordan Lance said.
Seikel promised Astro players and parents team and individual pictures.
But almost eight months later, the whereabouts of those priceless photos are a mystery.
“We would got a month or so without hearing from him,” parent April Watts said.
“Parents tried calling him, but he wouldn’t even return any phone calls.”
The In Your Corner team has also learned Seikel is a board member on the Pottawatomie County Athletic Association.
We tracked down the photographer at his Shawnee home.
“I just went by the bank and got them a check and sent it off to them,” Seikel said.
We later learned that was in fact not true.
There was no cashier’s check.
He also lied to us about not having phone numbers for any of the players or parents.
After we left Seikel’s house he miraculously found all the photos and delivered them to players and parents along with a full refund.
