The Stony Brook football team has always utilized a run-first offense under head coach Chuck Priore. The Seawolves’ rushing attack has finished among the top three in the Colonial Athletic Association (CAA) over each of the last four seasons.
As the second football head coach in Stony Brook history, Priore has helped transform the program from a state of mediocrity into one of respectability. However, the 62-year-old coach is now in the final year of a contract extension from 2018.
This year’s installment of the Stony Brook football team’s annual spring game featured a dominant offensive performance which picked apart an injury-riddled defensive line which showed room for improvement.
After a disappointing first half of the season, the Stony Brook football team won four of its final five games, including the Battle for the Golden Apple in the season finale, sending graduate quarterback Tyquell Fields off on a high note.
The Golden Apple is staying on Long Island. In a dominating effort from the opening snap, the Stony Brook football team blew out the Albany Great Danes, its biggest rival, 36-14 on Saturday, Nov. 20 to secure its second straight win in the series.
