Darren Artuso Profiled In Press Box Magazine
July 16, 2012
BALTIMORE - Moments after Loyola University Maryland won the NCAA Men's Lacrosse Championship, Head Coach Charley Toomey was captured by ESPN cameras hugging Darren Artuso.
Artuso, son of Loyola Assistant Athletic Director and Director of Sports Medicine Joe Artuso, has been a constant on the sidelines of Loyola athletics for years.
Recently, two publications profiled Darren and his part in the Greyhounds' success.
In June, the wrote about Darren and his bond with the Greyhounds, and he was also profiled in this month's Press Box Magazine.
Here is an excerpt from that story by Steve Jones:
When the Loyola University men's lacrosse team won the school's first national Division I championship, the most memorable congratulatory hug coach Charley Toomey received wasn't from a player or a coach. Instead, it was athletic training aide Darren Artuso leaping into the coach's arms immediately after Loyola's 9-3 title-game victory against the University of Maryland May 28.
"As soon as the game ended, I'm taking it all in," said Toomey, who coached the Greyhounds to an 18-1 season. "I turn around, and here's Darren coming on a full sprint and jumping into my arms. It's a moment I'll never forget."
Artuso's embrace of Toomey was captured by an ESPN sideline camera and broadcast all over the country. Suddenly, he went from a behind-the-scenes worker to the talk of the town.
