HANOVER N.H. –- Dartmouth men's soccer players Daniel Keat and Lucky Mkosana are among the 39 student-athletes named to the Missouri Athletic Club's 2010 Hermann Trophy Watch List.
The MAC Hermann Trophy is the highest individual award in collegiate soccer and the annual recipients, one male and one female, are chosen by NCAA Division I coaches who are members of the National Soccer Coaches Association of America (NSCAA).
A 2009 NSCAA All-America, Keat is returning to for his fifth fall in Hanover as a redshirt senior, having missed the entire 2008 season with an injury. A three-time All-Ivy honoree including first team honors in 2006 and 2009, Keat is coming off his finest season yet for the Big Green. As a redshirt junior in 2009, Keat started all 18 games, played more minutes, 1,623, than any other field player and was on the field for all but 40 minutes of the season. A midfielder, Keat led Dartmouth in scoring with 22 points on eight goals and six assists last season. He will serve as Dartmouth's co-captain for the second straight year this fall.
A junior forward, Mkosana is one of the most creative and feared strikers in the Northeast and continues to draw national attention. Mkosana has been named first team All-Ivy in each of his two seasons and has already amassed 44 career points which ranks 10th all-time. In 2009, he was named to the NSCAA All-Northeast first team after garnering second team honors as a freshman, when he was the unanimous Ivy League Rookie of the Year. Mkosana scored 11 goals (24 points total) as a rookie and then tallied his 20 points last season on eight goals and four assists. He will continue his assault on the record books this fall, with his 19 career goals more than halfway to the career mark of 33.
Dartmouth is one of just five schools to place two or more athletes on the list.
