Competition

Last season, Rozhansky’s first at Maryland, he started in all 21 matches for the Terps, who finished with an unbeaten regular season (16-0-2) and posted a school-record 15-game winning streak. Rozhansky finished with three goals and eight assists while leading Maryland to the Big Ten regular season and tournament crowns. He had two goals so far this season at the point of his nomination (Sept. 7). This past summer, Rozhansky led Team U.S.A. to a gold medal at the 2017 Maccabiah Games in Israel. He scored all three goals in the championship game, netting a hat trick and racking up Golden Boot honors. He concluded the tournament with six goals.
