Rosenshein walked onto the team as a freshman and spent his first year at West Point on the junior varsity team. He eventually worked his way into a starting position by his junior year.

Rosenshein wore the number 48 on his uniform in honor of his late grandfather, Lieutenant General Willard Scott, who graduated from West Point in 1948 and went on to a distinguished military career that included serving as Superintendent of the United States Military Academy (similar to being president at a civilian university) from 1981-1986.

Rosenshein is the 47th Army athlete to garner Academic All-America honors since 1955 and is one of only 14 first-team honorees. The Men's At-Large program for Academic All-America includes the sports of fencing, golf, gymnastics, ice hockey, lacrosse, rifle, skiing, tennis, water polo and wrestling.
