TOWSON, Md. Senior co-captains Randall Cooper, Bill McCutcheon and Mitchell Rosensweig of the Tiger men's lacrosse team have been selected to participate in the United States Intercollegiate Lacrosse Association’s (USILA) North-South Senior All-Star Game on Friday, May 22, it has been announced by USILA officials.

Cooper, McCutcheon and Rosensweig will play for the Division I-II South team, which will be coached by Jim Stagnitta and Jason Basso of Rutgers University.

“It’s always a significant honor to be selected as a player for the North-South Game and to have three of our graduating seniors make the roster is outstanding,” Towson Coach Tony Seaman says. “My congratulations to all three seniors on being named to the South Team.”

A starter in 16 of 17 games, Cooper ranked fourth on the team with 25 points by scoring 12 goals with 13 assists. He scored two goals with two assists in the Tigers’ win over Robert Morris on March 21 and against Johns Hopkins on April 22.

Named as a Lowe’s Senior CLASS Award candidate, Cooper was also the recipient of the Saxon Award. He finished his career with 43 goals and 38 assists.

Randall Cooper has been a four-year starter, a co-captain and a key member of our offense,” Coach Seaman says. “His leadership will be greatly missed.”

The Tigers’ leading scorer, McCutcheon scored 23 goals with 15 assists as a senior. A second team All-Colonial Athletic Association selection, he ranked eighth in the CAA with a 2.24 point per game average.

Named as the CAA Player of the Week on March 23, McCutcheon led the Tigers to a victory over Robert Morris by scoring four goals. He set a career high with a five-goal, two-assist performance against Air Force on February 28.

After transferring from Johns Hopkins University after his freshman year, McCutcheon scored 38 goals with 21 assists in three years with the Tigers.

Bill McCutcheon was the quarterback of our offense for the past two years as well as a co-captain,” says Coach Seaman. “His offensive talents were a major asset to our team.”

A first team All-CAA selection, Rosensweig ended his career ranked among the Tigers’ all-time leaders with 214 ground balls. He led the CAA with 109 ground balls and ranked third with a .559 face-off percentage. In the Tigers’ victory over Robert Morris on March 21, he won a career-high 17 face-offs. Rosensweig also had a season-high 13 ground balls against Hofstra on April 11 while winning 16-of-25 face-offs.

With 360 career face-off wins, Rosensweig finished his career ranked fifth on the Tigers’ all-time list. He was also the recipient of the team’s Nolan Award.

According to Coach Seaman, “Mitchell Rosensweig has established himself as one of the leading face-off specialists in the country over the last two years as well as being a co-captain this past season. He has continued the tradition of talented face-off men here at Towson.”

Since 1960, a total of 59 Towson players have been selected to play in the annual exhibition, including seven picks in the last three years. In addition, former Towson Coach Carl Runk was selected to coach in the 1978 and 1996 North-South Game.
