A 5-11 forward, Rutherford was the top goal scorer for the Panthers in each of his four seasons. He led the team with nine goals, 10 assists and 28 points this fall, finishing his career among the program's all-time leaders in each offensive category.
His career 30 goals are seventh best all-time, while he wraps up a distinguished career second in program history with 28 assists. Additionally, his 88 career points are the sixth-most in men's soccer history.
