The ACC School Mount Rushmores: Virginia FINAL

Well, there were not too many comments on the Virginia Mount Rushmore, making it a challenge for the Confidential.  Ultimately, the Confidential is going with Claudio Reyna.  For those who are not soccer fans, Reyna had a pretty dominant tenure at Virginia:

Highly recruited out of high school, Reyna elected to attend the University of Virginia from 1991–1993 on a full-ride scholarship. While at Virginia, he spent three seasons on the men’s soccer team, coached by future U.S. national team coach Bruce Arena. The Cavaliers would go on to win the NCAA championship each of his three seasons. On an individual level, Reyna won the Hermann Trophy in 1993 and the MAC Award in 1992 and 1993; and was named the 1992 and 1993 Soccer America Player of the Year. In 2000, the magazine placed him on its Team of the Century and named him the male player of the century.

That’s a pretty darn impressive three years of college.  His post-Virginia career has been full of accolades, as well.  He is considered one of the all-time best American soccer players ever.
