Maryland coach Sasho Cirovski remembers the exact moment when the "light clicked on" for midfielder John Stertzer late in his sophomore year in a game against Virginia. Until then, Stertzer had shown flashes of greatness, but was at times inconsistent, drawing the ire of his coach. It was during that game against the Cavaliers that Stertzer emerged as a complete two-way player, scoring on a header in the 47th minute and playing flawless defensively in a 2-0 victory. Now a senior, Stertzer heard the overtures at the end of last season, with some predicting he would be a first-round pick in the Major League Soccer SuperDraft.
