The most successful Coupeville High School gridiron season in three decades is officially in the books.

Capping a seven-win campaign which included the football program’s first league title and trip to state since 1990, the Wolves wrapped things Tuesday with an awards banquet.

The team’s All-Conference picks were honored, and you can find that list at https://coupevillesports.com/2022/11/09/love-this-team-love-this-town/.

Also noted Tuesday were the players who suited up for CHS all four years of high school — Dominic Coffman, Scott Hilborn, Daylon Houston, Tim Ursu, and Kai Wong.

Team managers Brenna Silveira and Melanie Navarro were also with the football program every step of the way.

Coffman, Houston, Ursu, and junior QB Logan Downes were noted for their season-long work as captains, as well.

Ramon Booker

Once a Wolf, always a Wolf.

Former Coupeville student/athlete Ramon Booker is in need as he recovers from a brutal car accident.

Ramon, who played football and basketball during his time on Whidbey, suffered a shattered kneecap Nov. 6, as well as a broken hip, neck, and nose.

“Statistics say he should not be alive, but by God’s grace he is still with us, and we are very, very grateful for that!” said mom Crystal Booker.

Ramon, who lives in Idaho, has progressed from the ICU to a rehabilitation hospital, where he’s receiving help to regain mobility and be able to walk again.

He’s expected to miss a minimum of three months of work as he fights his way back to health, which will create a financial hardship.

To help, his mother has launched a GoFundMe where those near and far can help out.

“On behalf of Ramon, myself, family, and friends, we THANK YOU ALL in advance,” Crystal Booker said.

“We assure you that no donation whether big or small will go without a grateful and thankful heart!”

Sean Toomey-Stout, ready for his closeup.

Soon, you can add a Coupeville grad to your trading card collection, stashing Sean Toomey-Stout next to your Ken Griffey, Jr. rookie card.

If you’re willing to put some work in to track one down, that is.

Toomey-Stout and his University of Washington football teammates are part of a “professionally designed, printed, and packaged trading card set,” which will be sold exclusively through Jacksons Food Stores.

While there are many locations across the state, the closest of those to Whidbey Island, however, is Marysville.

Packs, which go on sale in mid-December, contain 14 cards and retail for $12.99.

Every Husky player is featured, along with head coach Kalen DeBoer and mascot Harry the Husky.

One out of every 10 packs also include a bonus limited-edition, autographed card featuring U-Dub stars such as Michael Penix, Jr. and Rome Odunze.

The trading card set is possible because of the NCAA’s Name, Image, and Likeness program.

Jacksons Food Stores, founded by John D. Jackson in 1975, has grown from a single service station into a chain of 300+ convenience stores across seven states.

A list of Washington state stores where Toomey-Stout might be lurking inside a pack of Husky cards in a few weeks can be found here:

You can’t run away from Sean Toomey-Stout.

The Coupeville High School grad picked up three more tackles Saturday as the University of Washington football team crushed visiting Colorado 54-7.

The victory, the fifth-straight for the Huskies, raises their record to 9-2 heading into next week’s Apple Cup clash in Pullman with 7-4 Washington State University.

Toomey-Stout, seeing action in his fifth game, twice chased down Colorado kickoff returners, recording solo tackles.

The Torpedo also combined with U-Dub teammate Maurice Heims to bring a Buffalo runner down after a short two-yard gain on a running play up the middle.

Maya’s twin brother has seven tackles as a Husky, five of the solo variety.

It’s people (mostly) staring off into the distance.

Doing their best Jurassic Park tributes, Coupeville sports fans ponder on-field and on-court action, or at least try to go to their warm place.

One or the other.
