"Tommy is one of the most prolific players in the history of NYIT lacrosse, ECC lacrosse and Division II lacrosse as a whole," said current NYIT head coach Bill Dunn, an assistant on those championship squads. "He still is one of our staunchest supporters. He is definitely on the Mount Rushmore of NYIT lacrosse."


After his stellar career at NYIT, Zummo went on to play professionally in Major League Lacrosse (MLL) for six years with the Long Island Lizards, Boston Cannons and San Francisco Dragons where he was a 2X MLL All-Star and was named New Balance Major League Lacrosse Sportsman of the Year in 2008 after raising money to benefit youth afflicted with brain cancer.
