The football program at Stony Brook has been on the rise for a couple of seasons, and again, even in a loss, continued to impress Long Island Saturday as the Seawolves traveled to Syracuse to play the Orange.
Riverhead native Miguel Maysonet was his usual self, racking up 158 rushing yards, as Stony Brook lost, 28-17, at the Carrier Dome.
According to Stony Brook’s sports information staff, Maysonet rushed for 137 yards in the first half, becoming the second player in school history and fourth in Big South history with more than 3,000 rushing yards.
Maysonet is also only 486 yards away from breaking Conte Cuttino’s school rushing record.

On Saturday, Sept. 29, Stony Brook will travel to Army and continue to add depth to their football portfolio before diving into their Big South conference schedule.
