Thanks for the comments everybody.  The 5d Mk III has allowed me to get these shots.  I would never have even attempted these pics with the camera that it replaced (40d).  Someone had originally asked why I used auto ISO and now I don't see there post.  I used auto ISO because even though it looks like nice even light on the field, there are variances at different parts and you never know when the play you are shooting may enter a darker or brighter spot.  I absolutely love shooting manual aperture and shutter speed and using auto ISO.  The 5d Mk III gives you the latitude to do this.  I have had some "keeper" shots as high as ISO 12800.  I'm still learning the autofocus variations and trying to adapt them to various situations.  I have had some great success with indoor volleyball and I'm looking forward to the start of basketball in a few weeks.   
Good pictures. I have experience some keepers even at ISO 6400 with my 5D3 but haven't tried to push more. How do you compare the ISO performance with your other body (1Dx)?
