Stevens Lacrosse record player Brett Incollingo dies at 28
The athletic community at Stevens Institute of Technology mourned the loss of former record-breaking athlete Brett Incollingo.
The Yardley, Pennsylvania native died Oct. 6 at age 28.
Brett holds the record for career wins with Stevens men’s lacrosse in its 137-year history, having finished his career with 584 wins in the “X”.
A second-team All-Empire 8 selection in 2016, Incollingo also holds four of the top 15 single-season performances in the face-off circle in program history.
Incollingo scored a pair of goals with an assist, picked up 344 ground balls and caused seven turnovers, according to Stevens. He remains ranked among the program’s all-time leaders in career ground balls, career ground balls per game, and career winning percentage.
“Brett was the bravest and toughest competitor who competed to win every time he wore the Stevens lacrosse uniform,” said men’s lacrosse head coach Gene Peluso. “He played every minute with unparalleled passion and energy.
“Off the court, he was an excellent and caring teammate and a very bright student-athlete. He always worked hard for his successes and graduated from Stevens with honors. We are all better people to have Brett in. our lives.
“He made people better, he cared about his teammates and he was the person you wanted to line up with in a competition. His passing leaves us with very heavy hearts, but also makes us reflect and feel very grateful for his time with us.”
Brett graduated from college with honors after attending Holy Ghost Prep in Bensalem, Pennsylvania, where he played ice hockey and lacrosse.
He had worked at Colliers International, a commercial real estate company, and planned to coach lacrosse as a volunteer for Trenton Lacrosse next spring.
Services were held at FitzGerald-Sommer Funeral Home in Pennsylvania, with interment in St. Ignatius Cemetery.
