A product of Toledo, Seymour attended the University of Toledo but left after only playing one season. He was just shy a couple months shy of 19 years of age when he debuted with the NBL's Toledo Jeeps. The tough and scrappy player not afraid of a fight. Seymour had quick stops in New Orleans and Baltimore before signing with the Syracuse Nationals. He played for Syracuse for 12 years, including the last three as a head coach, also. He quit playing, but stayed on as head coach for another season before coaching the Hawks for two seasons. He later coached the Bullets and the Pistons.

He was married to Doris (1928-2004) and they had a son and a daughter.
