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.

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.

Sophie and Lucy Sandahl aren’t afraid to cross oars with anyone.

The Coupeville sisters took to the water Saturday, helping NCAA D-II Seattle Pacific University vie in one of the premier rowing events in Washington state.

The Sandahl siblings and their Falcon teammates participated in the Windermere Cup regatta, which went down on the Montlake Cut in Seattle and celebrates the opening day of boating season.

SPU’s open eight boat, with Lucy as coxswain and big sis Sophie rowing from the bow, gave regatta host University of Washington a strong push in their race before finishing second.

The Huskies compete for a D-I rowing program with a long tradition of excellence, but the Sandahls — in a boat with six novice college rowers — stayed close.

The Falcons zipped across the 2,000-meter course in seven minutes, 38.14 seconds.

Coupeville’s finest were joined on the journey by teammates Megan Rouse, Bella Sangston, Addie Clark, Meghan Rustemeyer, Nicole Svoboda, Ingrid Erickson, and Emma Ely.

Up next for SPU is the Great Northwest Athletic Conference Championships May 14 at Dexter Lake in Lowell, Oregon.

When not in the boat, both Sandahl sisters are hard at work pursuing degrees.

Sophie is a junior studying art history, while Lucy, a sophomore, studies physiology.
