Last year the Rutgers men's soccer team surpassed all expectations. The Scarlet Knights went 12-7-2 making their first NCAA Tournament appearance since 2011, reached the semifinals of the Big Ten Tournament and finished ranked No. 23 in the final NSCAA coach’s poll.The Knights shocked everyone with their accomplishments, but they had many contributors to that success.
