2017: Cassidy attended training camp with the Edmonton Eskimos.
2012-2015: Cassidy appeared in 42 games during his collegiate career at Eastern Washington. He was a central figure for an offensive line that helped EWU win three-straight Big Sky titles and FCS Playoff appearances between 2012 and 2014. Following a standout sophomore season, he earned honourable mention All-Big Sky honours.
Cassidy’s most memorable moment on the gridiron was shutting down DeForest Buckner and the rest of the Oregon Ducks while playing half the game on a broken foot during EWU’s season opener in 2015. The Interdisciplinary Studies major spends much of his free time volunteering in the community, particularly with the Special Olympics and Race For The Cure. When he isn’t pushing bodies around on the offensive line, Cassidy is working on cars in the parts department at his local Mercedes-Benz dealership. He spends his offseason in Denver with his wife Katrina and their three dogs.
