Tom Cafaro



Class of 1971
Lacrosse

A two-time first-team All-American, Cafaro was inducted into the National Lacrosse Hall of Fame. He was a member of the NCAA's Silver Anniversary Lacrosse squad and was a vital contributor to Army's 1969 national championship team. He won the Lt. Ray Enners Award as the nation's most outstanding player in 1971 and also the Jack Turnbull Award as the country's top attackman that same year.

Cafaro graduated with six Academy records and still holds four of them: points in a single season (85), goals in a single season (51), points in a postseason (18) and goals in a postseason game (7). He ranks sixth all-time in scoring (167), ninth in goals (96) and seventh in assists (71). He scored seven goals against Cornell in the 1971 semifinals (still a record for goals in an NCAA semifinal), the third best single game performance in Army history.

Cafaro averaged 6.54 points per game in 1971, a feat that still lists 17th in NCAA history. He registered 18 points in just two NCAA games in 1971, an NCAA record at the time.
