The best defensive football player in the Northwest 2B/1B League wore a Coupeville uniform.

That’s the opinion of conference coaches, who tabbed junior cornerback Scott Hilborn as Defensive MVP when All-League honors were announced.

Friday Harbor running back Connor Haines, a senior, earned Offensive MVP.

La Conner claimed Best Sportsmanship, Friday Harbor’s Brock Hauck was tabbed Coach of the Year, and Haines was nominated for the All-State game.

Hilborn, Dominic Coffman, and Daylon Houston were honored as First-Team All-Conference selections on both sides of the ball, with Brian Casey, Kai Wong, William Davidson, and Tim Ursu each picked for one of the teams.

Coupeville went 2-2 in league play, coming up just short in a triple-overtime loss to Friday Harbor, which would have given them a share of the NWL title.

The Wolves closed their season by knocking off 2A Evergreen of Seattle on the road to finish at 3-5 overall.

No one got away from Scott Hilborn.

They shared the load.

With a roster which fluctuated between 20-23 players, the Coupeville High School football team managed to get 10 of them into the end zone this season.

Junior Scott Hilborn was the front runner, banging to pay-dirt 12 times in eight games, while six of his teammates scored multiple times.

Those 12 touchdowns are the third-best single-season showing for a Wolf player in the Coupeville Sports era (2012-2021), trailing just Josh Bayne (25 in 2014) and Hunter Smith (14 in 2016).

Both of those CHS gridiron legends had 10 games in their seasons.

The best thing for Coupeville coaches is the knowledge that nine of 10 players who scored can return next season, with senior Cole Hutchinson the only departing player from the list.


Final scoring stats (8 games):



Scott Hilborn – 12
Dominic Coffman – 5
Logan Downes – 3
Daylon Houston – 2
Tim Ursu – 2
Jonathan Valenzuela – 2
Cole Hutchinson – 1
Johnny Porter – 1
Mikey Robinett – 1



Daylon Houston – 10



Cameron Breaux – 1
Downes – 1
Hutchinson – 1



Hilborn – 72
Coffman – 30
Houston — 22
Downes — 20
Ursu – 12
Valenzuela — 12
Hutchinson – 8
Porter — 6
Robinett — 6
Breaux — 2

Their swan song was a sweet one.

A week after a mud-encrusted triple-overtime loss to Friday Harbor ended its playoff hopes, the Coupeville High School football team wrote a better ending Thursday night in Burien.

Facing off with Evergreen (Seattle), a 2A Kingco school, the 2B Wolves punched upwards and threw some haymakers in a 28-13 win.

The non-conference victory raises Coupeville’s final record to 3-5 and sends seniors Brian Casey and Isaiah Bittner out on a high note.

While the Wolves had a sizable disadvantage in terms of bodies, with Evergreen’s roster sporting 50 names to Coupeville’s 20 or so players, that didn’t dictate Thursday’s result.

“They were a bigger team roster and size wise, but we were the more physical team,” said CHS coach Marcus Carr.

The game was won on the ground, with CHS taking a 14-13 lead into the halftime break, then stretching the margin out in the second half.

Jonathan Valenzuela punched in a touchdown for the Wolves, his second score of the season.

The headliner, however, was junior Scott Hilborn, who hit pay-dirt three times, notching his 10th, 11th, and 12th touchdowns.

Those 12 scores, tallied across eight games, are the third-most scored by a Wolf in a single season during the Coupeville Sports era, which runs from 2012 to today.

Hilborn trails just Josh Bayne (25 in 2014) and Hunter Smith (14 in 2016), who both had 10 games to work with.

Cameron Breaux and Logan Downes rounded out Thursday’s scoring effort, with both Wolves breaking the line on successful two-point conversion attempts.

Breaux was the tenth Coupeville player to score during a season when the team tallied 190 points, which breaks down to a tidy 23.75 per game.

Not done just yet.

The Coupeville High School football team has picked up a week 10 crossover game against another school which missed the playoffs.

The Wolves, who sit at 2-5, head to Highline Memorial Stadium Thursday, Nov. 4 to play Seattle’s Evergreen High School.

Kickoff is 6 PM.

The stadium is located at 400 S. 156th Street in Burien.

The game will pit Coupeville, a 2B school, against a 2A foe from the vaunted 2A/3A/4A Kingco — albeit one which finished dead-last in the 2A division.

Evergreen, 1-7, earned its lone win when Foster forfeited the regular-season finale.

Prior to that, the Wolverines lost:

50-42 to Sultan
55-6 to Meridian
49-14 to Lindbergh
48-14 to Highline
46-12 to Interlake
40-18 to Renton
25-19 to Sammamish

Evergreen will have a substantial player advantage, as it lists 50 players on its roster, while Coupeville is in the 20-22 range.

Best names on the roster?

Shady Earl, a sophomore defensive back/running back, and Viking Bergfast, a junior linebacker/running back.
