The photo bin overflows.

Wanderin’ camera clicker John Fisken was a busy bee Friday night, as he buzzed through Coupeville as part of a two-games-in-two-cities-in-one-night tour.

The pics above are below are some more behind-the-scenes ones, capturing all the varied people who make a football game a melting pot.

Summer Saturdays are made for hoops.

The South Whidbey High School boys basketball program hosted a series of hardwood scrimmages Saturday, with Coupeville winning two of three games.

The Wolves, who brought an eight-man contingent to Langley, rep the smallest school, but played big on the day.

Coupeville, a 2B program, topped 1A schools Sultan and South Whidbey, while falling to 3A hoops legend Mercer Island.

Each game was a 40-minute affair, with two 20-minute halves.

While the wins were nice, the primary reason for all the teams to be in action was the opportunity for continued improvement, as individual players and teams.

“Great Saturday of hoops,” said Coupeville coach Brad Sherman. “Just a great chance to go compete for the day and play hoops, get better.”

Playing for the Wolves were William Davidson, Nick Guay, Alex Murdy, Hawthorne Wolfe, Xavier Murdy, Logan Martin, Cole White, and Logan Downes.

Two titans passing in the night.

The unofficial Coupeville High School prom brought two Wolf basketball legends face-to-face Saturday, with almost 1,700 points on display.

Jeff Rhubottom, CHS Class of 1978, tossed in 1,012 points while patrolling the hardwood, which leaves him sitting #4 all-time on the school’s boys hoops career scoring list.

The dapper young gentleman next to him in the photo, senior-to-be Hawthorne Wolfe, is shooting up that same list, which covers 104 seasons.

Hawk has 662 points and counting through two full seasons and a pandemic-shortened junior campaign, which leaves him currently residing at #24 all-time.

When Wolfe and his teammates return for what should be a full season during the 2021-2022 school year, he’ll have his work cut out for him if he wants to catch Jeff Stone and Mike Bagby, tied for the program lead with 1,137 points apiece.

To get to 1,138, Wolfe will need 476 points during his senior season – a tall order but certainly reachable.

He averaged 21 points a night across a 12-game season as a junior.

If Wolfe were to score at that clip as a senior, he would need a shade under 23 games to achieve the feat.

Take a full regular season schedule of 18-20 games, add in a playoff run, and we could be in business.

If he were to get up to that 476 or higher mark as a senior, Wolfe would also have the second-best single-season scoring mark in CHS boys history, trailing just Stone’s legendary 644 from the 1969-1970 season.

The second-best season mark currently?

It’s 459 points, tossed in by one Jeff Rhubottom during his own senior season of 1977-1978.

The hunt for history continues.

My obsession with tracking individual scoring totals for all 104 seasons of Coupeville High School boys basketball will never be fully satisfied.

I know that. I accept that we’ll probably never uncover a treasure trove of stats from the 1930’s.

Or will we???

As the pandemic-altered 2021 campaign played out, we also picked up one of the holy grails — a complete tabulation of scoring totals for the 1953-54 Wolves.

That was one of two missing seasons (1951-52, you still elude me…) which would have a measurable impact on the career scoring charts, so it’s a major step forward.

Now, we have a final answer on totals for Jack Elzinga and Jerry Zylstra, and are just a season short of fully documenting Tom Sahli’s standout career.

As I played my game of Indiana Jones and the Temple of (Possibly) Doomed Stats, the modern-day Wolves also shook up the career scoring list.

Ten of the 13 CHS players to score this season were first-timers, lifting us to 402 boys we’ve been able to document rippling the net in a varsity contest.

Of the three returning scorers, Xavier Murdy and Hawthorne Wolfe made the biggest jumps, with Hawk vaulting from #58 to #24 all-time while averaging 21 points a night across 12 games as a junior.

It’s an ever-changing list, but as of June 17, 2021, here’s we sit — all 76,595 points I’ve been to able to track down.

The basket keeps jumping, the totals on the scoreboard keep advancing.

With two varsity games left to play — Tuesday at home against Darrington — the four Coupeville High School basketball squads have combined to score 1,502 points during this pandemic-altered season.

Three guys have cracked the 100-point barrier, with another one having a chance to do so in the finale.

What does it all mean?

That scoring is the easiest stat to track in basketball, and it makes for good chatter when you compare numbers.

Buckets equals page views. Simple as that.
