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.

Add two more to the list.

Coupeville High School Class of 2022 grads Caleb Meyer and Hawthorne Wolfe are joining the ranks of former Wolves playing college sports.

Meyer, a six-foot-two guard and the last heir to the Videoville legacy, is one of 15 players listed on the 2022-2023 men’s basketball roster at Skagit Valley College in Mount Vernon.

The Cardinals tip off Nov. 18 at the North/West Classic at Everett, with their season running through March.

A star athlete during his early days in Coupeville, Meyer attended Jackson High School from grades 9-11, before returning to his hometown for his senior year.

He was a crucial part of the most-successful Wolf boys basketball squad in decades, before advancing to the state meet in track and field.

Meyer keeps alive a Whidbey-to-Skagit tradition, with South Whidbey gunner Kody Newman the most recent alumni of The Rock to have played hoops for the Cardinals.

Wolfe, the floppy-haired Pistol Pete of Cow Town, was a four-year starter for Coupeville’s hoops squad who rained down 800 career points, even while Covid threw two of those seasons into turmoil.

But it’s baseball, where he was the Northwest 2B/1B League MVP last spring, which is drawing his early interest.

After tryouts, Wolfe made the roster for the club baseball team at Western Washington University, which plays in the spring.

The Vikings, who play at historic Joe Martin Field in Bellingham, compete in the National Club Baseball Association.

Western went all the way to the NCBA World Series in 2013, a season when one of their key players was Coupeville grad Jordan Wilcox.

Lucy Sandahl (center) and Sophie Sandahl (far right) are back for another season of Seattle Pacific University rowing.

The sisters that row together stay together.

Coupeville’s Sophie and Lucy Sandahl are back in the boat, competing with Seattle Pacific University.

The Falcons kicked off a new season Sunday with an appearance at the American Lake Fall Classic in Lakewood.

The Sandahl sisters shared the same boat in the 4+ race, with Lucy directing the boat as coxswain, while Sophie rowed out of the second seat.

Sophie actually pulled double duty on the day, also rowing in the 8+ race as well, which meant she put in a full 10K in the water.

Seattle Pacific returns to action Nov. 6 with an appearance at the Head of the Lake Regatta in Seattle.

That race, which is a 5-6K, starts at Gas Works and ends on the other side of the cut.

Lineups are still being worked out, but the chances of the Sandahl sisters making an appearance are remarkably high.

Coupeville’s best.

Time to put the clubs away and start thinking about hefting a bat.

Coupeville High School grad Joey Lippo wrapped his second season of collegiate golf Sunday, competing at the North Atlantic Conference Championships.

Husson University, led by medalist Jack King, claimed the team title at the 11-school event.

Lippo, who reps the University of Maine at Presque Isle, finished 46th in the individual race after carding an 87 Saturday and a 98 Sunday at the Waterville Country Club in Oakland, Maine.

The former Wolf, who was an All-Conference baseball player for the Owls last spring, now turns his attention back to the diamond.

Lippo has two seasons of baseball and golf under his belt at UMPI, an NCAA D-III school.

During his time in Coupeville, he was a three-sport star, playing tennis, basketball, and baseball for CHS.
