ORLANDO, Fla. (UCFAthletics.com) - Junior Warren Creavalle (Acworth, Ga.) of the UCF men's soccer team became the first player in program history to be named to the NSCAA/Performance Subaru All-South Region First Team for his play in 2010. In all, a school-record three members of the Knights were honored by the National Soccer Coaches Association of America for their roles in UCF's program-defining season this fall.

Junior Kevan George (Roxborough, Trinidad) and sophomore Nik Robson (Auckland, New Zealand) both earned All-South Region Third Team honors, marking the first time that UCF has had three players selected by the NSCAA for its all-region team.

"I am pleased that these individuals have been recognized for their efforts helping UCF in what has been a tremendous season," head coach Bryan Cunningham said.

Creavalle finished the season with four goals and four assists for eight points and was one of the most dynamic midfielders in the country. His stellar junior campaign not only earned him the first-ever UCF spot on the All-South Region First Team, but also his first on the All-Conference USA First Team.

On the first team with Creavalle are four members of North Carolina, a team that has reached the semifinals of the 2010 College Cup. Three members of perennial power Duke, as well as one player each from Florida Gulf Coast and Elon also join Creavalle to make up the regional first team.

George and Robson were named to the third team for their roles in leading the Knights to their most successful season since joining C-USA in 2005.

George, one of the two captains on this year's team, had four assists in his junior season and was one of the integral components of the Knights' midfield that helped limit opponents to a league-low 17 goals against in 2010. George also earned a spot on the league's first team for his all-around performance in his third season with the Knights.

Robson, just a sophomore, finished the year as the league leader in several major statistical categories on his way to earning a spot on the All-C-USA First Team. The second-year forward was the conference leader in points (31) and points per game (1.63), while second in goals (11), goals per game (0.58), assists (9) and assists per game (0.47) in 2010. Robson was also honored for his work in the classroom this past season, being named to the C-USA All-Academic Team with a 3.281 grade-point average as an Interdisciplinary Studies major.

UCF previously has one player named to the NSCAA All-South Region Team on three occasions. In Cunningham's first season as head coach in 2007, Ryan Roushandel was honored with a third-team selection. In 2006, Zak Boggs was also honored with a third-team selection, while 2004 saw Tim Sobczak earn second team honors.
