Riverhead High School graduate Miguel Maysonet’s professional football career begins with the NFL Draft this weekend. While it’s unlikely Maysonet will be drafted before the final rounds Saturday, it’s inevitable he’ll at least get a shot with an NFL team this season.

ROBERT O’ROURK FILE PHOTO | Miguel Maysonet might have played his final collegiate game.

Former Riverhead High Hansen Award winner Miguel Maysonet scored two touchdowns in what could end up being the final game of his collegiate career Saturday, a 28-14 loss to Liberty.

The defeat put the Seawolves (9-2, 5-1) playoff hopes in jeopardy.

With Stony Brook’s regular season complete, the team will await the outcome of next week’s games matching Coastal Carolina (6-4, 4-1) vs. Charleston Southern and Liberty (5-5, 4-1) at VMI.  Should the season end in a three-way tie, Coastal Carolina will get the Big South’s automatic bid into the postseason based on a tie-breaker of conference road wins.  If Liberty loses next week, Stony Brook will get the automatic bid based on a head-to-head tie-breaker against Coastal.

No matter what happens next week, it will not erase the historic season Maysonet had at Stony Brook this year. He was een featured in the New York Post today on a story about how NFL scouts have been checking him out this season.

On Saturday, he became the first Big South player to scored a touchdown in all 11 regular season games. He finishes with 21 scores on the year and 51 for his career.

Maysonet picked up 92 yards on 27 touches in Saturday’s defeat.
