Maybe I can be of some help. I purchased my D7000 last year and this is my second season shooting my son's football team.

Here's what I have been doing:

I use AF-C, AF-On (from the menu setting
I use 9 point dynamic area, and centered weighted metering.

Additionally, I use shutter priority and set the ISO where I can get a shutter speed of 1/1600 second. I find that this stops the action with very good clarity.

I have posted a lot of my action photos on my photobucket site which can be found at the following link:

My shots from the last two games the past two weeks are in the Jr. Indians Purple folders.

Hope this helps!
