Thanks guys, some of those psd's are really nice.
I used the lasso tool and outlined the player leaving some room for error, then after I moved the pic over, I just used the erase tool at 250% 300% pic size.
The background was the windows sample pics, the 4 default ones. I used the snow trees and just blurred it, it was all the resources I had available on my laptop.
But thanks for the suggestions, I couldn't really figure out how to do a border. So I set it at 4px - white. Whatever that means
