The muscles? Sean Toomey-Stout got them by lifting books.

He’s a heavy hitter on the football field and in the classroom.

Coupeville grad Sean Toomey-Stout was one of 32 University of Washington football players named Thursday to the Pac-12’s 2022 Fall Academic Honor Roll.

It’s the second-straight year “The Torpedo” has been honored by the conference for his academic excellence.

To make the Pac-12 honor roll, an athlete needs a cumulative grade-point average of 3.3 or better and has to have attended the school for a minimum of a year.

Toomey-Stout, a two-time Athlete of the Year during his CHS days — back when he was vying for weight room superiority with siblings Cameron and Maya — played in six games for the Huskies this past fall, including appearing in the Alamo Bowl.

He collected seven tackles for a U-Dub team which finished 11-2 and became likely the first Coupeville athlete to appear on their own collectiable trading card.

When he’s not going sideline to sideline blowing up fellow NCAA D-1 athletes, Toomey-Stout is studying Construction Management and making moms Lisa Toomey and Beth Stout proud.

“The Torpedo” has been sunk.

Sean Toomey-Stout’s breakout season has ended at the halfway point, after confirmation the sophomore fractured his ankle in the third quarter of Friday night’s game at Vashon Island.

An ER visit before returning to Whidbey confirmed the dire prognosis — he will need surgery after the swelling in his ankle comes down.

Toomey-Stout will be on crutches when he returns to school Monday and mom Beth Stout asked for his friends and fans to “send lots of thoughts his way, as he is already missing football and his team.”

Coupeville’s leading rusher and tackler this season, he’s been a huge part of the reason the Wolves are 3-2, already matching last year’s win total.

With his quicksilver moves and sterling work ethic, Toomey-Stout has blossomed from being an impact player as a frosh to being the heart and soul of the CHS defense.

His loss invokes memories of other similar injuries which claimed Wolf greats Paul Messner and Ian Barron during record-setting seasons of their own.

Sean’s absence creates a huge hole for Coupeville, as he was a key player on offense, defense and special teams, where and he big brother Cameron pursued return men like heat-seeking missiles.

Toomey-Stout entered Friday’s game with 47 tackles, which put him #4 among all 1A players whose teams have reported stats to MaxPreps.

He tore up Vashon in the first half, scoring on six and three-yard runs, giving him four touchdowns on the year, spurring CHS to a 42-7 win.

His injury came midway through the third quarter when he went down on a play near the left sideline.

A Vashon trainer attended to him on the field, and he eventually came off with assistance from coaches, but couldn’t put any weight on his foot.

By the time the game was done, his foot was showing considerable swelling.

Though, as normal, “The Torpedo” flashed the thumbs-up sign at moms Lisa and Beth when they asked how he was feeling and would have crawled back into the game if the trainer had turned her back for half a second.

Coupeville, which sits at 1-1 in Olympic/Nisqually League play, a game out of first place, heads to Port Townsend (2-0, 2-3) next Friday for a grudge match and then plays three straight at home against Bellevue Christian, Klahowya and Chimacum.

As the Wolves chase a winning season and a playoff berth, they will need other young players like Chris Battaglia, Shane Losey, Andrew Martin and Teo Keilwitz to step up in Toomey-Stout’s absence.
