HOW ACQUIRED: Acquired in a trade with the New York Red Bulls on February 23, 2007.
Stertzer has seen his playing time grow in each of his first three years with RSL, moving from two appearances in his rookie year in 2013 to 19 regular season appearances – including nine starts – last year. He’ll likely continue in a bench role in 2016, looking to compete with several other RSL midfielders for spot starts for the Claret-and-Cobalt.
COLLEGE: Stertzer spent four years at the University of Maryland, finishing his Terps career with 25 goals and 13 assists in 79 appearances. A third-team All-American in 2012 and a first-team All-ACC selection in 2011 and 2012, Stertzer helped Maryland to the College Cup semifinals in 2012.
