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."
