Tony Crescitelli set the standard for the College’s Soccer program. An outstanding soccer player, he was the quintessential finisher for the Men’s Soccer team. Tony’s career began with a bang in 1975 when he led the Nation in scoring with a goal total of 31, a mark he would well surpass his senior year when he led the Nation again in scoring 45 goals. Throughout his career at the College he was showered with well-deserved honors. He was selected to the Massachusetts State College Athletic Conference All-Star Team four consecutive seasons and honored as an All-New England team member on three separate occasions. Respected by his teammates, Tony was chosen as the team’s Most Valuable Player in 1976 and 1978. At the conclusion of his college career in 1978, he had distinguished himself as the all-time leading goal scorer in the Nation with 123 goals.

Following his stellar college career, Tony went on to participate in the Olympic Sport Festival in 1978. He was then drafted and signed by a professional Soccer team, the Washington Diplomats. His professional career lasted seven years and took him all over the United States. He played for the San Jose Earthquakes, Team America (United States National team), Ft. Lauderdale Suns, and the Buffalo Stallions.
