Following months of speculation and a well-publicized battle, Stony Brook Football Head Coach Chuck Priore announced today that junior Tyquell Fields will be the team’s starting quarterback for the upcoming season.
On Wednesday, October 14, the Academic Mall bustled with energy as the Homecoming candidates introduced themselves to their voting student body. The pre-Homecoming festivities included performances by the Stony Brook cheerleaders, the dance team and the marching band.
October is Breast Cancer Awareness month, and SBU Hospital Cancer Center and the Town of Brookhaven teamed up to “Turn the Town Pink” for the entire month. This flash mob dance was the first of many efforts to #GoPink and raise awareness to breast health, including the importance of self-exams as well as clinical exams. Various events are planned for the remainder of the month, including a “Seawolves Tackle Breast Cancer Football Game” on Saturday, October 11 at Kenneth P. LaValle stadium.
