So far this season, Rutgers men’s lacrosse has gotten off to a dominant start. The Scarlet Knights have posted a 7-1 record through their first eight games and have not lost in over a month. During that stretch, they have been led by Scott Ross, who is having a stellar senior campaign.
In eight games, Ross has recorded 22 goals and seven assists. His 29 points are the second most on the team, trailing Dante Kulas by one. The talented attacker has proven to be a difficult matchup for opponents, as he has recorded six or more points in three games this season.
Additionally, the West Linn High School product is thriving in clutch situations with three game-winning goals. He has not been afraid of shooting the ball and leads the team with 67 shots and 43 shots on goal. While his start to the season has been impressive, it comes as no surprise after his success last year.
Rutgers men's lacrosse mantains ranking following impressive road win
As a junior, Ross had his breakout season with 75 points in 19 games. It was the first time in his collegiate career that the West Linn native had more than 20 points in a season. He has been even better through the first few weeks of the 2023 campaign.
On a Rutgers team with high expectations, Ross has been one of their best players. He will be relied on as a critical piece of offense this season, a role he has already shown he is more than capable of handling.
