Towson fighting for Tony

While working on an article for Friday’s edition of The Sun, I spoke with Towson freshman attackman Matt Hughes and asked him about the precarious situation involving coach Tony Seaman.

Seaman is in the final year of a 3-year contract, and a new deal hinges on whether the Tigers qualify for the NCAA Tournament, which would be the program’s first appearance since 2007.

Towson (7-7) could do just that by beating Delaware (9-6) in the Colonial Athletic Association Tournament final on Saturday at 2:30 p.m. at Johnny Unitas Stadium inTowson. The Tigers are the top seed, while the Blue Hens are the No. 2 seed.

Hughes said the players are well aware of Seaman’s status.

"That’s one of the things we use as motivation," he said. "At our pre-game practice on Wednesday night, he went up to [senior midfielder and team captain] Brock [Armour] and told him that this could be his last practice. It’s hard to hear that. We all want to play for him and not just for ourselves."

Get on the field and kick the Blue Hens butts back to Delaware Saturday if you like your coach so much.
