DURHAM, N.H. - University of New Hampshire men's soccer head coach Rob Thompson has announced that Dylan George (Bangor, Maine) has committed to play for the Wildcats this fall.
    “Dylan will add important depth to the forward position,” said Thompson. “We are excited about what he can bring to the future of UNH soccer.”
    George is coming off of a very successful post graduate year at Bridgton Academy. The 5-foot-11, 160-pound forward started in all 17 games played and led the team in goals with 16 and points with 37. While at Bangor High School, George set the all-time scoring record with 52 goals. In 2005, he was awarded Gatorade Player of the Year and NSCAA All-America honors for his efforts at Bangor.  He was also the 2004 and 2005 State Class A Coaches Player of the Year as well as selected first team All-State and to the Eastern Class A All-Star Team. He was a four year (2002-05) member of Maine’s Olympic Development program. George was also a talented hockey player, earning All-State honors in 2005 and 2006.
    “Dylan could be the most athletic student-athlete of the class,” Thompson said. “He has great speed, can finish and already has had an extra year to develop at Bridgton. We are excited about what he can bring to our team up top.”
    The men’s soccer program is coming off a 12-5-3 season including 6-2-1 in the America East. The team, which recorded its best since 1994, made it to the semifinals of the conference tournament. UNH Men’s Soccer now has six student-athletes in its signing class.
