    Cassidy Rasmussen, Ultiworld’s 2015 Player of the Year, has signed with the AUDL’s Dallas Roughnecks after spending last season with the San Jose Spiders.

    Rasmussen follows in the footsteps of his club and pro teammate Beau Kittredge, who announced his move to the Roughnecks earlier this week.

    Rasmussen has been one of the AUDL’s best players since joining the league in 2014. He made the All-AUDL 1st Team in 2014 playing with the San Francisco Flamethrowers. Last year, he recorded 18 goals, 14 assists, and 5 blocks while sporting a 93% completion percentage.

    The Roughnecks will look to continue their aggressive player acquisition in the coming weeks.
