Despite a long line of elite point guards in Seton Hall history, Andre Barrett stands out as one of the greatest. A two-time All-BIG EAST selection and 2004 Haggerty Award recipient, Barrett currently ranks eighth on Seton Hall's all-time scoring list with over 1,800 career points. One of the great play-makers in Pirates' history, he ranks second in career assists to only 2012 Hall of Fame inductee Shaheen Holloway, and guided his team to an NCAA Tournament appearance and first round come-from-behind victory over Arizona in 2004. A stellar defensive player, Barrett also ranks among the Pirates' career top-10 in steals. A four-time All-Met performer, he's one of only two players in Seton Hall history with over 1,000 career points, 400 rebounds and 400 assists.

A captain and key component to baseball's back-to-back College World Series appearances in 1974 and 1975 was Rico Bellini. A sure-handed, slick fielding shortstop, Bellini batted at the top of the Pirates order in 1975 and was instrumental in the team's success. An AACBC All-District selection as a senior, Bellini helped lead the Pirates to an 11-0 upset of #1 Florida State in the College World Series, ousting the Seminoles from the tournament. Following his graduation in 1975, Bellini played four seasons of professional baseball in the Cleveland Indians farm system. In 1979-80, Bellini was the head baseball coach at Wagner College under athletics director P.J. Carlesimo. After working 25 years on Wall Street as a senior vice president for I-CAP International, he retired and now serves as a personal instructor at The Strike Zone in East Hanover, N.J. and coaches the New Jersey Cardinals U-17 showcase travel team. He is married 30 years to Sheila and has two sons Michael 28, and Joseph 24.

Seton Hall's first All-American wrestler, Joe Burke became a national force in the 150 lb. class during his collegiate career. Twice, he earned All-America status, finishing fourth at nationals in 1993 and third in 1995. In his senior year, Burke entered the season ranked #2 in the nation, but defeated the preseason #1 ranked wrestler three times to assume the #1 ranking and earn the top seed at the NCAA Championships at the University of Iowa. That season, he lifted the program to new team heights as well. Seton Hall finished with a duel match record of 12-5, won the Big Northeast Conference Championship and finished the season ranked 18th in the nation. A winner of several tournaments during his career, Burke was named Most Outstanding Player of the 1993 New England Championships. The Millmay, N.J. native finished his career with an amazing 148-20-1 individual record.

One of the greatest men's soccer players to wear a Pirates' uniform, Gerson Echeverry cemented his legacy as one of the nation's elite from 1990 to 1993. A three-time All-Conference performer, Echeverry led Seton Hall to back-to-back BIG EAST regular season titles and three straight NCAA Tournament appearances. In 1991, he put together what is arguably the finest single-season performance in Pirates' history. Echeverry finished third in the nation with 52 points, was named BIG EAST Player of the Year and garnered Third Team All-American recognition. After a stellar professional career, both overseas and with Major League Soccer, he settled in as a reputable coach spending five years as an assistant at his alma mater, before working with the U.S. Men's U-17 team. Currently, Echeverry is entering his second season as head coach at Seton Hall.

Arguably the greatest female swimmer in Seton Hall history, Jen Heider-Berenyi took the BIG EAST by storm in the early 1990s. As a freshman in 1991, she became the first Pirate swimmer to win a BIG EAST title, and went on to win three more in her career. To this day, no swimmer, regardless of gender, has matched Heider-Berenyi's four championships. The first Pirate to break the one minute mark in the 100-yard backstroke, she set 11 school records, including the 100-yard fly, a record that still stands today. Heider-Berenyi remains one of only two swimmers in Seton Hall history to win multiple BIG EAST titles in the same event (100-yard fly).
