Sound Familiar? Bobzien is Rookie-of-the-Week
For the third time in four weeks, University of Hartford freshman men's lacrosse player Jack Bobzien has been named the America East Rookie of the Week.
The attackman grabbed his second-straight accolade after assisting on a career-high five goals and scoring one to help lead the Hawks to a thrilling, 15-14, overtime victory over UMBC at Alumni Stadium on Saturday afternoon.
In addition to notching career highs in points and assists, Bobzien also picked up a career-best five ground balls against the Retrievers. His final two helpers of the afternoon helped fuel the Hawks' comeback as they sparked a run of three unanswered scores that erased a 14-11, fourth quarter deficit and forced overtime. In addition, the five assists were the most in a game for Hartford since Ryan Compitello handed out five helpers in a 22-17 loss to Siena on March 14 of last season.
Having recorded at least one point in all eight games of his career, the Littleton, Colo., native has been of the sharing nature as of late, averaging more than four assists over his last four games to lead Hartford to a 3-1 mark during that span.
Bobzien's 25 assists and 31 points are team bests,and rank second and fifth, respectively, in America East. On the national level, his 3.13 helpers per outing rank fourth overall and are the most of any freshman in the country.
With just eight career games under his belt, Bobzien has already cracked Hartford's single-season record book, as he is currently tied for 10th in assists with Kurt Jeskulski and Travis Eckler.
