Former Retriever Rob Elliott ('96) and the current 2014 College Cup UMBC men's soccer team were honored at the Old Timer's Soccer Association of Maryland Hall of Fame ceremonies earlier this spring.
Elliott became the sixth Retriever player inducted into the Maryland Soccer Hall of Fame. He completed his collegiate career at UMBC in 1993, after scoring 74 points in three seasons (1989-91) at Loyola (Md.). The striker set the UMBC single-season record with 16 assists in 1993 and added 10 goals to tie J.J. Kremer for the team lead with 36 points. Elliott, who attended Calvert Hall, earned Big South Conference Second Team honors in his final collegiate season as UMBC posted a record of 15-3-1.
He joined teammate Kremer in the Hall of Fame, along with other UMBC standouts Steve Zerhusen, Jason Dieter, Giuliano Celenza and P.J. Wakefield.
In a special ceremony, the 2014 team was honored by the association and received a standing ovation for their achievements during the championship season. Head Coach Pete Caringi, Jr., associate head coach Anthony Adams, assistant coach Pete Caringi III and several student-athletes were on hand for the occasion.
