In order to take your turn as the centerpiece of a dinner table conversation at Josh Rosen’s house, you’re going to need something fairly substantial. The Rosens are the kind of family where achievements earned almost always begin with the word “National” or touch on a subject most of the rest of us didn’t know existed.
Rosen’s father, Charles Rosen, is a graduate of the University of Pennsylvania, founding director of the University of California-Irvine Spine Center and the President for Medical Ethics. His mother, Liz Lippincott, is a graduate of Princeton, a former editor of Sportstyle and Golf Pro magazines and the great-great-granddaughter of Joseph Wharton, who founded the Wharton School at Penn. Rosen’s older sister, Beatrice Rosen, recently finished her freshman season at Emory University, where she, according to her bio, “recorded one of the most successful freshman campaigns in the history of the Emory Women’s Tennis program during the 2012-13 season.” And it’s likely only a matter of time before his other sister, Lydia, announces her candidacy for the United States presidency. She’s set to enter the seventh grade this fall.
On Tuesday evening, Josh Rosen got his turn at the table, as the 2015 Bellfower (Calif.) St. John Bosco standout was named the No. 1 quarterback in the country for his recruiting class.
