Warrior.  Literally, Rob is a warrior due to already completing the 10-week United States Marine Corps Officer Candidate School in Quantico.  Upon graduation from Brown, he will begin his service to our nation as a 2nd Lieutenant.  Rob attacks his physical and athletic undertakings with an unmatched intensity and energy until he knows "mission accomplished."  He shrugs off injuries as minor details in the big picture, not allowing a shoulder that has popped out of joint or foot surgery prevent him from training with his teammates as they plow through the fields of toil.  Never known to be reserved with commentary, Rob expresses himself clearly and accepts all challenges.  It is little wonder why he is such a strong captain.  As a competitor on the lacrosse field, he is the quintessential throwback two-way midfielder.  He has the lungs and fortitude to run up and down the turf all day.  He fights for every inch.  In a multiple-man, rugby-like scrum on the field, Rob invariably is the one who comes away with the loose ball.  On offense, he has a six-shooter mentality:  if you miss at first, keep firing.  For three years, Rob has played a significant role for us and led from within.  Now he leads from the front, and his persona and ferocity make the rest of us all the tougher as we follow him…2011:  All-Ivy and All-New England selection… A fierce competitor, he finished as Brown's top scoring midfielder, and fourth leading scorer overall, with 18 points… Scored 12 goals and handed out six assists…Picked-up 24 ground balls…Turned in a strong performance in Brown's win over #12 Penn, scoring a career high four goals, while distributing two assists...Had two goals against both St. Joseph’s and Cornell…2010: Started seven games and played in 12 before being injured vs. Cornell…His 19 points (10 goals, 9 assists) ranked seventh on the Brown squad…registered two goals in a win over Harvard…Had a goal and two assists vs. Duke…Picked-up 22 ground balls, including a season high six ground balls at Hofstra…2009: Enjoyed a strong freshman year, scoring five goals and one assist…Netted two goals in the Bears’ win over UMass…Picked-up 35 ground balls, fourth best on the Brown team…Won the Vincent Marinelli Award as Brown’s Outstanding freshman player…Secondary School Background: A graduate of Noble and Greenough School where he lettered in lacrosse (4) and football (4)…US Lacrosse All-American…Lacrosse and football team captain…Three time All-ISL league selection…Second leading scorer in school history with 240 career points…Lead league in scoring as a senior with 88 points…MVP of New England East/West All Star Game…All-New England and All-league in football…Lead the team in tackles his senior year…Member of the New England Select Lacrosse League club team…Personal: The son of Robert and Gail Schlesinger…Has a sister, Jess…Enjoys fishing and golf…Economics concentrator.
