The young guns are ready for their close-ups.

First-year Coupeville High School football head coach Bennett Richter has eight freshmen on a 32-man roster this season.

Toss in two eighth graders, Davin Houston and Dylan Robinett, who are working with the team while they await the arrival of their high school gridiron eligibility, and it’s a strong group.

Five of those eight frosh have made their debut on the stat sheet already this season, led by Aiden O’Neill and Chase Anderson, who have each been involved in a touchdown celebration.

The size of the group is remarkable for a school which no longer has a middle school gridiron program and has to hope Coupeville kids travel up to Oak Harbor to participate in Whidbey’s only youth football program.

The photos above and below capture eight of the 10 young stars.

O’Neill is missing, as we already used his portrait after he snagged his debut TD catch, and Devinion Hill was apparently not part of the photo shoot from where these pics originated.

Four weeks in, the stat sheet is filling up.

Off to a 3-1 start, the Coupeville High School football squad looks strong in all facets of the game.

Last Friday’s 46-0 romp at La Conner let Wolf coaches mix up their lineup a bit more than usual, which allowed several new names to pop up on the stat sheet.

From Cameron Breaux and Marquette Cunningham to Devinion Hill and Hurlee Bronec, they join mainstays like Tim Ursu and Dominic Coffman.

As we head towards a major rumble — this Friday’s Homecoming game against chief Northwest 2B/1B League rival Friday Harbor — a look at the season-to-date stats:

Rollin’ and strollin’.

Raining down base-knocks all day Wednesday, the Coupeville High School varsity baseball squad roared to a third-straight conference win.

Thrashing visiting Darrington 10-1, the Wolves soar to 3-0 in Northwest 2B/1B League play, 4-3 overall, heading into their biggest test of the season.

Coupeville, which sits a half game up on Friday Harbor (2-0) and Orcas Island (2-0) in NWL action, travels off-Island for a doubleheader Friday afternoon.

That twin-bill will be held on Friday Harbor, where the defending league champs await.

The Wolverines were the only NWL team to beat Coupeville last year during a pandemic-altered season, so the plan is likely for some sweet, sweet revenge.

Coupeville primed the well Wednesday, with six hitters combining to collect 10 base-knocks off of Darrington’s pitching staff.

Eight of those hits came across the first two innings, as the Wolves put up four runs in the bottom of the first, then matched that with another four-spot in the second.

After that, CHS was content to tack on a run in the fourth and one more in the sixth, coming close to ten-running Darrington while still getting a chance to play a full seven innings.

Coupeville was clicking in every facet of the game, with hurlers Hawthorne Wolfe, Chase Anderson, and Jonathan Valenzuela combining to toss a one-hitter while striking out six Loggers.

At the plate, Cody Roberts (2B, 1B), Alex Murdy (1B, 1B), Valenzuela (1B, 1B), Xavier Murdy (1B, 1B), Scott Hilborn (1B), and Peyton Caveness (1B) all recorded hits for the Wolves.

“On to Friday Harbor!”

Back on track.

After absorbing a couple of close non-conference losses, the Coupeville High School varsity baseball team bounced back with a vengeance Tuesday afternoon.

Raining down runs and getting a strong pitching performance from 8th grader Chase Anderson, the Wolves walloped visiting La Conner 19-9 in a game mercy-ruled after five innings.

The victory, coming in Coupeville’s conference opener, lifts it to 1-0 in Northwest 2B/1B League action, 2-3 overall.

It’s also a nice kick-off to a stretch where the Wolves play seven straight games against league foes.

Coupeville dominated in the early going, ringing up seven runs in the bottom of the first, then tacking on another two in the second and four in the third.

That left CHS up 13-0 when Anderson departed the mound after three innings of work in his high school pitching debut.

After playing in the infield previously this season, the middle school ace was darn near impeccable on the mound Tuesday, retiring nine of the 11 Braves hitters he faced.

Anderson whiffed five while giving up just a single hit and a lone walk.

Chase pitched awesome, especially for an 8th grader,” said Coupeville coach Will Thayer.

La Conner got to the Wolf bullpen a bit, pushing across six runs in the top of the fourth, and another three in the fifth, but the CHS hitters matched them step-for-step, ending the game early.

On the day, 15 Wolves saw action, with eight of them recording at least one base-knock.

Coupeville leadoff hitter Hawthorne Wolfe crunched a double and single to pace the hit attack, while Scott Hilborn, Cody Roberts, Jack Porter, and Anderson each delivered a pair of singles.

Sage Sharp, Xavier Murdy, and Jonathan Valenzuela also rapped out a hit apiece, as the Wolves piled up 13 base-knocks and 15 walks.

Three of those free bases carried a sting however, as La Conner pitchers plunked a trio of CHS sluggers with wayward pitches.

Thayer was able to keep most of his players busy, with Cole White, Alex Murdy, Aiden O’Neill, Zane Oldenstadt, Camden Glover, Johnny Porter, and Cole Hutchinson also seeing the field.

It was the high varsity debut for 8th graders Glover and O’Neill.

A little warmup before opening day.

That was what the Coupeville High School varsity baseball team was looking for Friday afternoon.

A day before kicking off the regular season with a home game against Mount Baker, the Wolves travelled to Oak Harbor for a multi-team jamboree.

While there CHS bounced their hosts 5-0 and were nipped 1-0 by South Whidbey in three-inning contests.

It was a strong start for a 2B Wolf program, with Oak Harbor and South Whidbey being 3A and 1A schools, respectively.

Making the jump from the hardwood, where he helped lead Coupeville to its first state tourney berth since 1988, junior Alex Murdy led the offensive charge.

Meanwhile 8th grader Chase Anderson made his high school diamond debut, tossing a scoreless inning on the mound.

With Mount Baker on the horizon — varsity plays at 1 PM Saturday, followed by a five-inning JV game — Coupeville coach Will Thayer was glad to see his players working out the kinks.

“We hit great against Oak Harbor, and struggled against slower pitching from South Whidbey,” he said.

Coupeville’s varsity, ready for the season.
