Friday night football is always about more than just football.

As the biggest “event” sport in the high school game, gridiron action brings out a wide host of people.

From band members to cheerleaders to burger grillers, local photo whiz kid John Fisken always takes some time away from the game to capture the swirl of activity going on off-field.

The pics above capture football without football in all its wide-ranging glory.

Fall sports have sprung, in all their photographic glory.

Coupeville High School’s football team kicked off the 2019-2020 school year Friday, hosting Port Townsend, and the event was big enough to convince John Fisken to drive down from the city to the North.

Cameras at the ready, the wanderin’ paparazzi clicked away through the pre-game action and the first half of play.

The pics above are courtesy him, but are not all that he shot on the night.

If you purchase any prints while there, a percentage of each sale goes into a fund Fisken uses at the end of the year, when he hands out scholarships to two CHS senior student/athletes.

Coupeville super fan Gretchen Smith, a truly lovely human being, but also a back-alley brawler when needed. (Photos by JohnsPhotos.net)

The cameraman compliments her children, like daughter Heidi Monroe, and her grand-kids…

but when he starts pushing her to buy pics, Smith shows off why Joe Louis used to call her “The Dancing Assassin.”

It’s a good thing Gretchen Smith can take a gentle joke.

That’s all I’m saying, cause I don’t need Genna and Sarah Wright’s grandma coming for me with fists o’ fury.

Last time we saw each other, at a softball game in Granite Falls, she gave me a warm hug.

Of course, after this lil’ “story,” she might be offering free hay-makers next time.

While the action plays out on the court, there are a thousand little tales unfolding in the stands as well.

Band, cheer, fans, cute babies. You name it, he shoots it, and I run it.

Especially the cute babies, cause cute babies get big page hits.
