Alum Men's Lacrosse players Anthony George ’20 and Matt Manown ’20 were named United States Intercollegiate Lacrosse Association (USILA) Scholar All-Americans, announced by the organization on Friday night.
"This is a tremendous and well deserved honor for both Anthony and Matt," said head coach Joe Alberici. "During their four years in the Army Family they have both been outstanding role models as they have been unrelenting in the pursuit of excellence on and off the field. Well done!"
It is the second-straight year that a Black Knight was named a Scholar-All American by USILA as Griffin Schultz received the honor in 2019. The last time Army saw a pair of players in the same year named to the squad was back in 2016 (Jimbo Moore and Austin Schultz).
George graduated with a 3.017 grade-point average as an Economics major while minoring in Environmental Engineering. The Carmel, Ind., native was named to the Dean's List four times and takes the time to tutor his teammates in SS201 (Economics). George was awarded real-life experience during several internships including time at the Marion County Public Defenders Office and the Secret Service. On the field, George was one of the Cadets' top defensive midfielders who capped his career with 75 ground balls and 21 caused turnovers in 53 games played. He commissioned as a Field Artillery Officer in May.
Manown graduated with a 3.061 grade-point average as a Business Management major and Industrial Engineering minor. Named to the Dean's List four semesters, Manown was voted a team captain for his senior season. He started in all eight games for Army this season and recorded three multi-point games.
The Saunderstown, R.I., native notched the game-winner against #19 Rutgers and totaled nine points in 2020. In his career, Manown scored 32 goals, tallied 27 assists and totaled 59 points in 52 games. He commissioned as a Field Artillery Officer in May.
