WASHINGTON, March 7, 2012 - D.C. United has signed 22-year-old midfielder Lance Rozeboom. 

Rozeboom impressed United in recent training camps. He was selected by the club in the  second round (26th overall) of the 2012 MLS Supplemental Draft from the University of New Mexico. Rozeboom, who will wear the No. 25 shirt, will likely be a reserve back-up to central midfielder Perry Kitchen. The rookie scored a goal from scoring from 25 yards out in United’s preseason 1-1 tie with Real Salt Lake in Arizona last month. 

“We’re pleased to add Lance to our roster,” said D.C. United general manager Dave Kasper. “He performed well during preseason, is able to play a number of positions on the field, and provides additional depth to our roster.” 

The Walker, Iowa native, who spent four years majoring biology at the University of New Mexico, was a key member of the soccer team’s undefeated 2011 season. He started each of the team’s 22 games last year, earning three goals and two assists, as the Lobos finished 18-0-4.

He finished his career at New Mexico with six goals and five assists in 78 games (68 starts).
