Seaman Headed to Greater Baltimore HOF
from press release
BALTIMORE, Md. – Towson University Lacrosse Coach Tony Seaman, a three-time National Coach of the Year, has been selected for induction into the Greater Baltimore Chapter of the U.S. Lacrosse Hall of Fame.
The induction ceremony will be held on January 22, 2011 at the Grand Mason Lodge in Hunt Valley.
"It is an honor to be selected from my many peers for induction into the Greater Baltimore Chapter of the U.S. Lacrosse Hall of Fame," Seaman said. "Being able to work everyday at a job that you truly love among people that you have the greatest respect for and with student-athletes who strive for the very best is an honor by itself and being chosen to enter Greater Baltimore Chapter's Hall of Fame is icing on the cake.
"I certainly want to congratulate each member of the Class of 2011 and feel very special to be included in their company," Seaman added.
In 12 seasons as the Tigers' coach, Seaman has compiled a 96-83 record and won four conference championships. After capturing the 2001 America East championship and advancing to the NCAA semi-finals, he led the Tigers to three consecutive Colonial Athletic Association titles that earned Towson automatic bids to the NCAA Tournament. Seaman also coached the Tigers to the first round of the NCAA Tournament as an at-large team in 2007.
Seaman has been selected as Coach of the Year in both the America East Conference (2001) and the CAA (2004, 2010).
Over a stellar coaching career that spans nearly three decades, Seaman has been honored as the USILA Coach of the Year three times (1983, 1984, 2001). His record of 260-156 ranks sixth among active Division I coaches.
Prior to his Towson appointment in 1999, he spent eight years as the head coach at Johns Hopkins University, leading the Blue Jays to a 77-33 record and four NCAA semi-final appearances.
Seaman guided the University of Pennsylvania to a 74-37 record over an eight-year span when the Quakers earned at least a share of the Ivy League title four times and six berths in the NCAA Tournament.
He began his college coaching career in 1982 when he led C.W. Post to a 13-3 record.
