Community of Awesome #234: Stony Brook Standing Tall

#234: Stony Brook Standing Tall.


The Stony Brook University Marching Band is no stranger to the Community of Awesome, and their halftime performance at the football game on Saturday was truly touching. Beginning on Thursday, Nov. 1st, the student leadership called each and every member of the band to check in on their families and let them know the show will go on – but it will be special. The band stood in solidarity with those struggling throughout New York and Long Island, making a giant heart on the field that stretched 50 yards during halftime. Stony Brook University stands tall with our community, and we will all get through this together.

The Seawolves Showcase at the Staller Steps on Friday Night

LaValle Stadium has been the home of the Seawolves since it opened in 2002. The Stadium has been the site of a victorious Homecoming Football game the past six years, in front of supportive crowds that cheered on Seawolves athletics. The most electric atmosphere to this point was when Stony Brook beat Albany in the first round of the FCS Playoffs last year. Something was different about this year.

The streak is still alive, with Stony Brook now winning seven Homecoming gamesin a row. Wolfstock saw a record-breaking week, with jaw dropping attendance at every event. Wednesday was packed out with Seawolves for the Homecoming Kickoff Carnival. Thursday saw a full house of over 600 students, faculty and staff at the King & Queen Creative explosion. The Staller Steps were stuffed with hundreds of students like never before for the Seawolves Showcase. Saturday was the highlight – LaValle Stadium was bursting at the seams with a record shattering 10,278 fans in attendance, decked out in red, covered in paint and screaming  their heads off.  Fans rushed the field after a dramatic conclusion and they all looked up to watch as fireworks lit up the night sky.

Seawolves rush the field after a 32-31 victory

As Stony Brook continues to make tremendous strides, momentum is on our side.
