Former La Salle three-time All-American and 2013 Phillylacrosse.com Player of the Year Matt Rambo has been suspended indefinitely after being charged with assault in an incident 9 days ago in Prince George’s County.
Maryland coach John Tillman announced the suspension Friday and also announced that student assistant coach Brian Cooper has been dismissed from the team for his role in the incident.
Rambo and Cooper (Archbishop Spalding) were charged with first- and second-degree assault, according to court records. Rambo also was charged with malicious destruction of property. Both men were released on their own recognizance.
Their court date is scheduled for Nov. 24 in District Court in Upper Marlboro.
“We hold our student-athletes to a high standard and they are expected to represent our program and university accordingly,” Tillman said in a statement. “We will continue to cooperate fully with the investigation. Because this is an ongoing matter, we will refrain from any further comment at this time.”
Rambo, an attackman, had 30 goals last year as a freshman while starting all 17 games. He was named MVP of the 2013 Under Armour Senior All-American Game when he set a record for goals (eight) and led la Salel to the 2013 Pennsylvania Interscholastic Athletic Association championship game.
