Down 7-3 at halftime in at a rain-soaked Alumni Stadium in Dover, Delaware, Towson was heading toward a loss to the Delaware State Hornets, what would have been its third consecutive defeat to begin the 2014 season. It certainly wasn’t the outcome Towson had in mind after blowing out Delaware State, 49-7, last season. Head Coach Rob Ambrose spoke words of encouragement at halftime, despite the deficit. “I told them that there was no question in anybody’s mind that we could win the game,” Head Coach Rob Ambrose said. “We just had to go out, do our job, do it together and get excited about doing it.

Behind the drum set I’m pretty comfortable,” Millman said. The Welcome Back concert is a yearly event at Towson. “I like that there were a lot of different kind of people there and it was kind of a syndication of Towson,” freshman Elana Geary said.
