Just a few years can radically change people.

That’s evident in today’s Throwback Thursday peek back into the history of Coupeville boys basketball.

It features the guys who will be the seniors next year, anchoring the 2019-2020 edition of the Wolf varsity hoops team.

Seven of the 12 players in this photo, which was shot in Nov., 2014, were still with the program during the basketball season which still ended.

The lineup (with active players in bold):

Take a dive back into Coupeville track and field history, and see how many future stars you can ID along the way. (Photo courtesy Ian Somes)

The alumni are ready to do one more sprint drill.

Thanks to a photo found in an old album, the 1994-1995 Coupeville Middle School track and field squad lives again.

A big part of the fun of unearthing pics like this is trying to recognize the younger versions of athletes who went on to be stars.

After some back-and-forth on Facebook, we know Michael Meyer, Jess Roundy, Devyn Barron, April Ellsworth-Bagby, Kellen Ward, David Torres and others are present.

So, how many can you ID?

With Meyer (second from left, bottom row) rockin’ his middle school mane of curly hair, he was the first I knew for sure.

When this photo was taken, he, and the other members of the CHS Class of 2000, were in 7th grade.

Meanwhile, I was in my first year of working for his mom, Miriam, having started my 12-year run at Videoville in Oct., 1994.

So that means … checks my notes … I’m old.

We’re going back to when you could smell the paint fumes.

Today’s Throwback Thursday photo captures a moment in time when Wolf athletes went the extra mile for their classmates, adding a colorful zing to the cheering section.

PS, the first home Coupeville High School volleyball match of the new fall sports season is just six weeks away — Thursday, Sept. 6 against Friday Harbor.

So, the challenge is out there, Wolf fans.

Who among you is ready to get artistic and go back to the future?

It’s time to get dusty.

Pull down those boxes from the attic, venture into the darkest regions of the cellar.

If you have photos from Coupeville’s sporting past, or programs, stat sheets, newspaper clippings or anything of the like, I would love to know about it.

There is no magic room at CHS with the history of this town’s sports accomplishments filed neatly inside.

The only way to shine a spotlight on those who came before, to tell their stories and remember their accomplishments, is with a lot of help.

I’ve been doing my lil’ Coupeville Sports Hall o’ Fame for a year straight now, and I am well aware a lot of very worthy names have not entered those hallowed digital walls.

Which is where you come in.

You need to give me some info, a guiding shove down the path, some photographic proof that your grandparents once walked tall.

I’m happy to run as much historical stuff as possible, especially during the slow summer days.

I would be thrilled to induct a lot more genuinely worthy athletes, coaches and supporters into the Hall.

But, to do so, I need your help.

I need what’s in your attics and your cellars.

So start looking, folks.
