There’s no better way to end a high school career than the way Andrew Rosenbaum did with Archmere Academy last month.
The University of South Carolina-bound midfielder set up the lone goal off a corner kick to lead Archmere to the DIAA Division 2 boys championship over Wilmington Friends last month in Dover, Del. The title was the first in program history.
“I was hoping as a freshman that I would be able to win a state title, had a few dreams about it and talked to a bunch of my teammates over the course of the four years,” Rosenbaum said in the latest episode of The Path Soccer Podcast. “To finally make that dream come true was pretty special.”
Given his experience playing club with guys like Drew Blackwell, who has won multiple Division 1 state titles with Salesianum School, Rosenbaum was thrilled to finally get his hands on a trophy of his own.
“I’ve seen numerous teammates at Sallie lift that trophy and then having them jazz me at practice about it,” he said.
Before he heads to Columbia, South Carolina, the Wilmington, Del. native will get another shot to win some hardware with his Penn Fusion Academy team — they lost in the ENPL national final in 2018 — but even before that he’ll share the field with some other high school soccer players in a High School All-America game today in Winter Park, Florida.
“I’m hoping to do well so that I represent my club, my school and community,” he said.
“To get that selection is something that means a lot to me.”
The girls game kicks off at noon, followed by the boys at 2 p.m. Visit topdrawersoccer.com for live streaming information and coverage.
