The Tewaaraton Foundation has announced University of Maryland attackman and La Salle Lacrosse Alumnus Matt Rambo '13 as the winner of the 17th annual Tewaaraton Award, presented by Under Armour. The Tewaaraton Award annually honors the top male and top female college lacrosse players in the United States.
The all-time points and goals leader in Maryland's prestigious history, Big Ten Offensive Player of the Year Matt Rambo led the Terps to their first national championship since 1975 and fourth straight Final Four appearance. The three-time USILA All-American helped the Terrapins to a Big Ten Championship and NCAA Tournament No. 1 overall seed for a second consecutive season. In the process, he became the first Terp to notch more than 40 goals and 40 assists in a single season, and earned the USILA Lt. Raymond J. Enners Outstanding Player Award. Rambo's 87 points and 45 assists were best in the Big Ten and good for third and fourth in the nation, respectively.
The senior attackman from Glenside, Pa., is Maryland's first men's Tewaaraton winner and the 1st winner from the Philadelphia area.
During his time at La Salle, Rambo helped lead the Explorers to the 2013 PIAA Lacrosse State Championship in his Senior Year.
