Williamsport, PA - Mark Seagreaves is the 68th person associated with the football program to earn induction in the athletics hall of fame. A four-year starter, the Allentown, Pa., native played alongside other Athletics Hall of Famers defensive linemen Keith Jenkins ‘99 and Coleman, helping the team to three MAC titles (1997-99) and four Freedom League titles (1997-00).

As a freshman, the Central Catholic High School graduate helped the team to the national title game and as a sophomore, the team advanced to the national quarterfinals and during his career, the Warriors notched a 34-2 regular-season record. Seagreaves picked up two First Team All-Freedom League honors, earning the accolades as a freshman and a senior.

He was also a second-team pick as a junior. He picked up First Team Don Hansen Football Gazette All-American honors and Second Team Hewlett-Packard All-American honors as a senior, as he tied the school record with 17 sacks and smashed the school-record and led the MAC with 31 tackles for a loss. His six-sack game against Wilkes in 2000 helped him set a school record that still stands and earned him both Team of the Week and MAC Defensive Player of the Week honors. Seagreaves holds the school record with 75 career tackles for loss and is second in school history with 42 career sacks.

Seagreaves is now key account representative in service/repair/modernization sales with Thyssen Krupp Elevator in Allentown, Pa.
