The recognition marks the latest Hall of Fame honor for Cassese, who was also named to the National Lacrosse Hall of Fame in 2018 and US Lacrosse Long Island Metro Chapter’s Hall of Fame in 2013.
 
A three-time USILA All-American, including first-team recognition in 2002 and 2003, Cassese is one of the most decorated Blue Devil midfielders in program history. He was a do-it-all midfielder, playing both offense and defense, while also facing off.

Cassese was instrumental in helping the Blue Devils capture consecutive ACC Championships in 2001 and 2002 and advance to the NCAA Tournament three times. The 2002 National Midfielder of the Year and 2001 ACC Player of the Year, the native of Long Island was inducted into the National Lacrosse Hall of Fame in 2018.

Cassese finished his illustrious career with 80 goals and 38 assists and currently ranks 41st in program history with 118 points. Internationally, Cassese played at the highest level, winning a pair of gold medals with the U.S. National Team.
