The Jacksonville Armada FC announced on Sunday the signing of Trinidad & Tobago International midfielder Kevan (KEE-von) George.
George recently joined Jacksonville as a trialist after spending the last four years with Major League Soccer side Columbus Crew, logging 1,344 minutes in 28 appearances and 11 starts during that time. He has earned 10 caps for the Trinidad & Tobago National Team since 2013.
"We are excited to add another quality player to our roster,” said Tony Meola, Armada FC head coach and technical director. “Kevan comes to us with international experience and has adapted to our group quickly. We are looking forward to seeing Kevan grow over the next few seasons here in Jacksonville."
Prior to being drafted 29th overall by the Crew in the second round of the 2012 MLS Superdraft, George was a three-time All-Conference USA selection for NCAA Division I side University of Central Florida in Orlando. There he started 73 matches and finished with six goals and 16 assists.
A native of Roxborough, Trinidad & Tobago, George prepped at Decatur High School in Decatur, Ga., where he was the captain of his team. He was also a member of the Region III Olympic Development Program team from 2003-06.
