Don Seeley was busy being Don Seeley Tuesday night.
Covering the PAC-10 Boys Lacrosse Senior Bowl at Pottsgrove High
School, Seeley scarfed down a hot dog and jokingly traded barbs with
Pottsgrove’s athletic director, Gary DeRenzo.
After the inaugural all-star game, the recently-retired sports
editor filed a story highlighting not just the game but the story of
lacrosse growing in the area.
A strong piece,
it appeared on the sports section’s front page, above the fold, a place
Seeley’s byline inhabited countless times in the last 30-plus years of
working at The Mercury
“You couldn’t wait to read the paper with Don’s articles,” said
Spring-Ford Area High School Athletic Director Mickey McDaniel.
“Especially the features.”
The game was the final Seeley would cover.
The local sports legend died Wednesday morning after being stricken while playing golf, one of his passions. He was 62.
