UVa Hall of Fame Inductees

Former Cavalier standout Jim Dombrowski is one of 13 players who will be inducted into the College Football Hall of Fame this year. He anchored Virginia's offensive line from 1982-85 and finished his brilliant college football career as UVa's first-ever unanimous All-American. In addition, he became only the fifth Cavalier to have his number (73) retired. A two-time winner of the Jacobs Blocking Trophy (recognizing the ACC's best blocker), he helped lead UVa to three straight winning seasons and a 27-24 victory over Purdue in the 1984 Peach Bowl, the school's first bowl appearance.
