    Seawolves alum Conte Cuttino to sign pro football deal

    On Sunday, former Seawolves running back Conte Cuttino (’10) announced via his twitter page that he is close to signing a deal to play professional football in Canada.

    Cuttino tweeted that the contract looks “very promising to get done soon.”

    Cuttino, Stony Brook’s all-time leading rusher, posted this video after his workout with the Hamilton Tiger Cats of the Canadian Football League.

    According to his twitter page, Cuttino ran a 4.43 40-yard dash at his workout and performed well in the shuttle run.

    Cuttino finished his Stony Brook career with 3,067 rushing yards, 20 touchdowns and 245 receiving yards.

    He is the latest in a series of Stony Brook players to make it to the professional level. In May, Stony Brook athletics announced that defensive back Chris Richards (’10) had been signed by the Seattle Seahawks of the NFL. Additionally, Lawrence Lovell (’09) signed a two-year contract with the Hamilton Tiger Cats and Dwayne Eley (’09) inked a two-year deal with the Saskatchewan RoughRiders, both of the CFL.

    Richards has since been released by the Seahawks.
