There are two separate story-lines going on at most high school football games.

One tale plays out on the field, while the other is told in the stands, where students, parents, alumni and fans mingle, chat, catch up, spark new romances or gossip about old ones, and, occasionally, cheer.

Swinging his camera around to catch grandstand life, wanderin’ paparazzi John Fisken snapped the images seen above.

To view more fan happenings, and a handful of action pics he snapped before hightailing it to Oak Harbor to watch son Michael play for the Wildcats, pop over to:


And, gentle reminder – purchases help fund scholarships for CHS student/athletes.

Yes, yes, you could just chuck your wallet at the first Wolf you see wander by, and let them scamper away with whatever bills they fish out, but this way of funding them does seem more constructive.

If slightly less fun.

In between shooting the action on the pitch and court, wanderin’ paparazzi John Fisken also trained his cameras on the support crew, and the pics above are courtesy him.

One team, one dream.

There are many people playing many roles, as each week’s edition of Friday Night Lights unfolds.

You have to have football players of course, but cheerleaders and fans play a huge part in making the festivities truly … festive.

Another key role is played by the paparazzi, who stop by to snap away on their cameras, as John Fisken is inclined to do from time to time.

The pics seen above, which come from Coupeville’s 13-0 win over visiting Vashon Island Friday, are courtesy the mad clicker.

To see everything he shot, including pre-game and in-game action shots, pop over to:

We’re going back to when you could smell the paint fumes.

So, the challenge is out there, Wolf fans.

Who among you is ready to get artistic and go back to the future?

   The top row gets rowdy, as (l to r) Cheryl Engle, McKenzie Bailey and Genna Wright contemplate gettin’ up to shenanigans.

Ema Smith is no prairie newb. She comes ready for any and all weather.

One win away and Wolf baseball fans can already taste another league title.

   After opening her 8th grade track season with a bang this week, fast-rising supernova Ja’Kenya Hoskins swings by to check out her future classmates.

The weather was just so-so Friday, but that didn’t keep the bleachers from getting jammed.

Wolf fans ignored the cool, cloudy conditions and came out in force to watch the red-hot Coupeville softball and baseball teams anyway.

And they were rewarded, as both squads stormed to victories, raising their records to 10-4 (softball) and 12-4 (baseball).

As the games played out and the stands rocked, wanderin’ paparazzi John Fisken clicked away, and the pics above are courtesy him.
