Liotine Leads Backs in 3rd Scrimmage

August 19, 2017
Liotine SBU 2016

Liotine carries the ball vs. Temple last season

This morning, Don Liotine ’13 was the leading rusher for the Stony Brook University Football team in their third intrasquad preseason scrimmage. The former Bear rushed for 43 yards on 8 carries and added a touchdown in a goal line situational play for the Seawolves.

Liotine has been the leading rusher in each of the Seawolves’ three scrimmages. A week ago Liotine led all backs with 38 yards on 8 carries and in the week one scrimmage he racked up 74 yards on six carries, punctuated by a 50-yard run.

Here is the Seawolves’ season preview of the running backs:

Stony Brook running backs coach Omar King always has a smile on his face and why not. The fourth-year coach has one of the most talented groups of backs in the nation led by senior All-CAA Football honoree Stacey Bedell and junior Donald Liotine.

Bedell enters his final season as a Seawolf ranked in the top 10 of numerous career categories in Stony Brook’s history, including third in career touchdowns with 23. He has amassed 2,119 yards during his career and has gained at least 100 yards in 12 games.

Liotine, who has just under 1,000 career yards and fellow junior Jordan Gowins, who gained over 500 yards in his first season at Stony Brook in 2016, give Stony Brook three top threats coming out of the backfield.

Stony Brook opens the season at #19 University of South Florida on Sept. 2nd.
