Riverhead High graduate Miguel Maysonet ran for a career best 220 yards in Stony Brook University’s 23-3 win over Army  Saturday. It was the Seawolves’s first-ever win over a major college football program.

“I think we showed real early we’d be able to compete with Army,” Maysonet said afterward. “We were able to block what they threw at us. I’m proud to be a part of the first Stony Brook team to beat an FBS school.”
