Towson, Md. Native Joins GBC Staff After Six Years at Towson University 


WILMINGTON, Del. – Eric Rhew has been named as the Sports Information and Communications Specialist at Goldey-Beacom College, it has been announced by Director of Athletics Chuck Hammond.

Rhew joined the Goldey-Beacom College Athletics staff after nearly six years as the Assistant Director of Athletics Media Relations at Towson University.

“We are thrilled with the addition of Eric to our staff,” Hammond said. “Eric has so many great concepts on how to spread the message of our student-athletes and coaches to our target audiences in the community and local sports media. With his proven track record, we know Eric will do a tremendous job promoting Goldey-Beacom College Athletics. We welcome Eric to the Lightning community and we are all very excited to work with him.”

During his tenure at Towson, the Towson, Md. native served as the media relations contact for several teams, including the men’s and women’s soccer, men’s and women’s swimming and diving, and men’s and women’s lacrosse teams.

A 2005 graduate of Towson, Rhew began his media relations career as an undergraduate assistant, helping the Tiger media relations staff with game-day responsibilities and publications. In 2002, he was honored as the University’s Student Employee of the Year and was a finalist for the award in 2003.

Following graduation, Rhew moved to Boston, Mass. to serve as the Director of Media Services for Major League Lacrosse. He served in that capacity during the 2005 MLL season and returned to that role in a part-time capacity during the 2007 and 2008 seasons. He will serve as the league's Statistics and Information Manager during the 2012 season.

In August, 2005, Rhew moved back to the Baltimore area to work at Loyola College, serving as the Media Coordinator in the Office of Athletic Communications. In addition to serving as the SID for several of the Greyhounds’ athletic teams, he was the radio play-by-play voice for the Loyola women’s basketball and women’s lacrosse teams.

However, Rhew returned to Towson nearly a year later, joining the Tigers’ Athletic Media Relations staff on a full-time basis.

Rhew was recognized by the College Sports Information Directors of America (CoSIDA) eight times during his time at Towson. Most recently, his 2011 Tiger women’s lacrosse media guide was ranked as the “Best in the Nation” while his 2009, 2010 and 2011 Tiger men’s lacrosse media guides were ranked “2nd in the Nation.” In addition, the Tigers’ 2009 and 2010 women’s lacrosse media guides followed as “3rd in the Nation.”

He also earned a citation from CoSIDA in 2007 as the Tiger volleyball media guide was ranked 2nd in the District by CoSIDA while he collaborated on the 2009 Tiger football media guide, which placed “2nd in the Nation” among NCAA FCS schools.

Rhew was also named as the recipient of the Division I Women’s Lacrosse Media Services Award by Inside Lacrosse Magazine in 2007.

From 2008 to 2010, he was the host media coordinator for the NCAA Division I Women's Lacrosse Championship which was held at Johnny Unitas® Stadium on the Towson University campus.

He is a member of the College Sports Information Directors of America (CoSIDA) and is a member of the CoSIDA Academic All-America committee. He currently resides in Wilmington, Del.
