Cue “Renegade.” Sean Toomey-Stout has arrived.

The Torpedo is blowing things up.

Coupeville grad Sean Toomey-Stout is the first former Wolf to ever record stats for the University of Washington football program.

As in, a program which launched in 1889, has won two national titles, and will play its 1,250th game this Saturday.

How did Toomey-Stout go from outrunning deer on the field in Cow Town to recording four tackles in his first two college games, which ranks him 10th on the current Huskies stat sheet?

Look at the photo above and let The Torpedo channel his inner Walter White.

Who are you talking to right now? Who is it you think you see?

No, you clearly don’t know who you’re talking to, so let me clue you in.

I am not in danger. I am the danger!

A guy opens his door and gets tackled and you think that of me?

No. I am the one who knocks!

The Torpedo is a made man.

Coupeville High School graduate Sean Toomey-Stout saw his first on-field action as an NCAA D-I football player Saturday, as the University of Washington thumped visiting Kent State 45-20.

The former Wolf, a redshirt freshman for the Huskies, was in on the game’s final three tackles, bringing down Golden Flash runner Gavin Garcia each time.

Toomey-Stout recorded solo tackles after a pair of four-yard gains, while teaming up with fellow Dawg Makell Esteen to stuff Garcia on a three-yard plunge.

Garcia was a four-time state champion in high school, running for more than 2,000 yards as a senior while finishing his career with the second-most touchdowns in Pennsylvania history.

Maya Toomey-Stout’s twin brother joined the U-Dub football program as a walk-on after finishing a stellar prep career in Coupeville.

Sean was a two-time CHS Male Athlete of the year who starred for the Wolves on the football field (alongside older brother Cameron), basketball court, and track oval.

While he didn’t see on-field action for the Huskies last year, Beth Stout and Lisa Toomey’s son suited up for games and made the Pac-12 academic honor roll.

Toomey-Stout and the Dawgs return to action next Saturday, Sept. 10, when Washington hosts Portland State.

Fall creeps closer, and with it the return of high school and college sports action.

Several Coupeville High School grads are confirmed to be in the mix to play at the next level when leaves start to fall.

Topping the list is Mica Shipley, an NCAA D-1 cheerleader at Eastern Washington University.

She’s a junior and is headed into her third season on the sidelines with the Eagles.

EWU football, backed by the high-flying Shipley and her teammates, kicks off a new season Sept. 3 at Roos Field in Cheney, when Tennessee State University visits.

At least two other former Coupeville athletes are chasing college football dreams.

Coupeville sisters Lucy and Sophie Sandahl return to the Seattle Pacific University rowing program, which will compete in fall regattas before conducting the majority of its season next spring.

With the departure of several strong seniors, the boat lineups for the Falcons are still being determined.

Rounding out the Wolves participating in fall college sports — at least as far as I know at the moment — is Joey Lippo, who confirms he’ll be back on the links at the University of Maine at Presque Isle.

It’ll be the second college golf campaign for the lanky duffer, who has also played two seasons of baseball at UMPI.

He’s a Dawg.

Sean Toomey-Stout’s journey from Coupeville athletic sensation to being the future of University of Washington football continues.

Saturday brought the U-Dub season opener, and while a loss to Montana put a dampener on things in general, the mere sight of The Torpedo on the sidelines is enough to send a thrill through Cow Town fans.

Even Cougar fans may have to get a Husky jersey.

Piece by piece, day by day, practice by practice, Coupeville grad Sean Toomey-Stout continues to make a place for himself in the University of Washington football program.

Take a look at the U-Dub football roster — 2021 Football Roster – University of Washington Athletics (gohuskies.com) — and The Torpedo now has a mug shot, a bio, and a jersey number.

Plus they fixed his height and weight, giving him back the three inches and layers of muscle they originally failed to credit him with.

Toomey-Stout, who made it through as a walk-on, is on the roster for the upcoming fall season, and may play in the Husky Spring Game this Saturday.

“It’s a 50/50 chance that I will play,” he said. “Because I came so late I don’t know all the coverages yet, but the coaches said it’s definitely possible for me to play.”

From a 1A (now 2B) high school to a D1 football power — the journey continues.
