Following the most successful season in program history, Michael Rexrode, Kieran Mullins, and Max Edelmann were named to the All Big Ten team. The conference announced the awards Tuesday.
Rexrode was named to the first team. He was the leader of a much improved Scarlet Knight defense and finished the season with 28 ground balls and 23 caused turnovers. The 23 caused turnovers led the Big Ten. Rexrode was twice named the Big Ten defensive player of the week.
Kieran Mullins was named to the Second Team. Mullins came out of no where to lead the Scarlet Knights with 35 goals on the season. He tacked on 16 assists for a team leading 51 points. His 35 goals were good for third most of all D1 freshman. Mullins scored the game winning goal against Ohio State in the Scarlet Knights biggest win of the season. He was named National Player of the Week once and was the Big Ten Freshman of the week three times.
The final All Big Ten honoree was Max Edelman. Edelmann was also named to the second team. Edelmann entered last season as the starting goalie, but an injury against Fairfield would cut his 2016 season short. Edelmann came back with a vengeance in 2017 finishing with a 10-4 record. Edelmann finished with a 53% save percentage and a 8.91 goals against average.
In addition to the three players named all Big Ten, senior Connor Murphy was named to the conference sportsmanship team.
Rutgers finished the regular season 10-4 (2-3) and will await an NCAA Tournament birth on selection Sunday, May 7th.
