As Coupeville High School football plows through spring practices, the chance to scrimmage with other teams mixes things up a bit.

After playing at Mount Vernon earlier, the Wolves welcomed Concrete to Whidbey Thursday for a final inter-squad fling.

Along for the ride was photographer John Fisken, who snapped the pics seen above.

The 2014 edition of the CHS Wolves.

It was football, but of a different sort.

With the start of a new high school season six weeks away, the Wolves welcomed 3A Lakeside to town Saturday afternoon for a scrimmage.

The bleachers ended up two thirds full, a few plays brought a buzz from the crowd and both teams got to work on plays under live conditions, even if players were wearing shorts, the scoreboard was turned off and coaches were grouped in the backfield.

Oh, and also, the sun was blazing away, a far cry from normal conditions at Mickey Clark Field.

Trust me, first-time fans, come back in mid-October, when the fog attacks and the rain slices down sideways. That, my friends, is true Cow Town football weather.

This was mid-summer vacation weather, which allowed for the gathered to work on their sun burns while watching Lathom Kelley and Wiley Hesselgrave administer whiplash to Lakeside runners.

Josh Bayne picked off a pass, while coming within a fingertip of a second interception, team captain Carson Risner came up out of a scrum ready to rumble with the entire Lakeside defensive line like it was the playoffs and the smallest player on the field had the biggest hit.

That was incoming freshman Cameron Toomey-Stout, who came flying up the left sideline and laid into a Lakeside receiver as he took his first step after snagging a short pass.

One of the few times Coupeville stopped Lakeside from breaking big runs down the sideline — something the Wolves will need to work on before they open their season Sept. 5 against South Whidbey — it got a roar from the crowd and Toomey-Stout was jumped ‘n thumped by his teammates as he headed back to his position.
