 As part of its year-long MAC 100 celebration, the Middle Atlantic Conference is celebrating its centennial with the announcement of MAC 100 All-Century Teams. Former Manhattanville men's soccer star Keston George '12 was named to the All-Century Men's Soccer Team for the 2003-2011 era, according to an announcement released Thursday, December 6, 2012, by the conference office.

George had a nearly unmatched career on the field for Manhattanville, finishing as one of only two three-time NSCAA All-Region recipients in program history while also earning four consecutive All-Freedom Conference first-team selections (2008-11). In addition, he was named the Freedom Conference Rookie of the Year in 2008 and the Freedom Conference Player of the Year in 2009.

George finished his career fourth all-time in goals at Manhattanville with 35 and tied for second all-time with 11 match-winning goals. He also finished sixth all-time in terms of assists with 20 for his career, for 90 points in 75 matches. His 90 points makes him only the fourth player in program history to reach the plateau.

Manhattanville has been a member of the Middle Atlantic Conference since the start of the 2007-08 school year, and despite only being a member for the last six years George was named to the historic team that features members from many generations of men's soccer, with the voting broken up into different eras based conference membership and sport sponsorship. In order to qualify for the teams, student-athletes were required to be an All-Conference first-team selection at least once.

As a part of the MAC 100 celebration, the Middle Atlantic Conference will recognize top athletes from conference history, naming student-athletes to All-Century Teams in each sport from each era, with the teams announced at the end of the respective sports' playing season. The teams were selected from an online fan vote combined with votes from MAC Sports Information Directors.
