Rosenberry was captain and scored 46 career goals with Lancaster Mennonite, the school won the 2011 Pennsylvania AA Championship and played club soccer with Penn Fusion Celtic. Keegan did not play USSDA soccer, but did play MLS reserve league games with the Philadelphia Union and played against the Everton Academy in England. He signed with Georgetown University where Head Coach, Brian Wiesse said “Keegan is an important addition to our program. His leadership quality is unmatched. He can play almost anywhere on the field, is technically superior and finds ways to win. His competitive nature will be hard to keep off the field on game day.”
Keegan has been a starter since joining the Hoyas and in three years has played in 69 games, starting all them playing in either a full-back, holding midfielder or wide midfielder role and has scored two goals and added seven assists. He has been named to the All-Big East second team two years in a row. Keegan has played PDL soccer with Reading United both in 2014 and in 2015 playing in a total of 14 games scoring one goal and adding two assists. He was named to the US U-23 College Training Camp in July 2015.
Possessing above average speed and ball playing skills, Rosenberry is able to keep possession of the ball. He also has a good awareness of the game especially on defense and is a dedicated player. He does not have outstanding natural skills and his low scoring and goal providing output creates some worry if drafted in an attacking role. The Hoyas success in 2015 including Rosenberry own performance will dictate if the Union offer him a homegrown drafted or otherwise where he is drafted in the 2016 MLS SuperDraft. The Union were denied Homegrown claims on Rosenberry, but ultimately drafted him 3rd overall in the 2016 MLS SuperDraft and partnering him with fellow Hoya teammate Joshua Yaro who was selected the pick prior.
