VESTAL, N.Y. – Senior forward Jake Keegan has been named third-team All-Northeast Region by the National Soccer Coaches’ Association of America (NSCAA). It marks the first time in his illustrious career that he has earned the accolade.
Keegan finished the 2012 campaign ranked No. 28 in the nation with 0.61 goals per game and was No. 32 with 1.44 points per match. In the America East Conference, Keegan ranked second in both statistical categories. Last month, Keegan was named first-team all-conference and was also selected to the America East All-Academic Squad.
Keegan’s 11 goals were the most by any Binghamton player since Cameron Keith netted 10 goals in 2007. Furthermore, his 26 total points in the most by a Bearcat player since Charles Darkwah finished with 29 points in 2004.
In the Binghamton record books, Keegan concluded his career with 28 goals, the most scored by a player during the program’s 12-year NCAA Division I era. His 69 career points is also tops among the Bearcats’ Division I players. In the program’s all-time history, which dates back to 1960, Keegan ranks sixth in both career goals and points.
Academically, Keegan has been on just as solid ground during his career at Binghamton. He has been named to the America East Academic Honor Roll each semester. In addition, he is the first Bearcat to be named first-team all-conference as well as all-academic during the same season.
Since 2003, Binghamton has posted 12 NSCAA All-Northeast Region selections. Keegan is the first Bearcat to be honored since Kyle Manscuk earned first-team honors in 2010.
NOTE: Also in the final NCAA Division I statistics, senior midfielder Adam Whitehead was ranked No. 30 with 0.44 assists per game.
