Liotine receives a hand off in last week’s win vs. Sacred Heart

This evening the Stony Brook University football team faces off against Colonial Athletic Association foe Towson University at LaValle Stadium. Seawolves running back Don Liotine ’13 will be leaned on heavily as Stony Brook looks to improve to 3-1 on the season. The following is excerpted from a preview of the game by Mike Ruiz of Newsday.


For Stony Brook, Saturday’s football game against Towson is all about the run.

“If you can run the football and defend the run, you’re normally going to be OK,” head coach Chuck Priore said of the upcoming CAA matchup.

The Seawolves (2-1) were downright dominant running the ball last Saturday against Sacred Heart. Their rushing unit combined for a total of 294 yards and two touchdowns on the ground in a 45-7 home rout.

Donald Liotine led the ground attack for Stony Brook with 84 yards on 11 carries. Jordan Gowins chipped in 79 yards and one touchdown on 17 attempts.

“It’s extremely important to establish the run,” Liotine said. “Towson’s very physical up front.”

While Liotine and Gowins will bring power to combat Towson’s physical defensive line, Stacey Bedell will provide balance with blurring speed at 5-9, 195.
