Glenside’s Matt Rambo, already regarded as one of the best ever lacrosse players from the Philadelphia area, has won this year’s Tewaaraton Award for the most outstanding American college lacrosse player, writes Joseph Santoliquito for Philly Voice.
Rambo, who turns twenty-three next month, started his lacrosse career playing for LaSalle College High School. He then continued on to the University of Maryland where he quickly assumed the mantle of the greatest lacrosse player in its history.
During his time at UMD, Rambo was named the Big Ten Offensive Player of the Year for 2017 and two time USILA All-America selection. He also led the team to No. 1 overall seed and won the Big Ten Championship in two consecutive seasons. Finally, he rounded off his illustrious Maryland career with a record 87 points.
Now Rambo, who graduated with a degree in American studies last month, is going professional after being drafted by the No. 3 Major League Lacrosse team, the Charlotte Hounds.
“I think the things that helped Matt was the bigger the moment, the bigger Matt played,” said Maryland head coach, John Tillman.
