Hoo Wore it Best? #72 - Ray Roberts
Ray Roberts is one of the most decorated and dominant offensive
linemen in the history of Virginia football.  During his career, Roberts
played on three bowl teams, and he was a starter on UVA’s first ACC
championship team in 1989.  A four-time letter winner (1988-1991),
Roberts was selected to the All-ACC team three times (2nd Team All-
ACC in 1989, 1st Team All-ACC in 1990 and 1991), and he was named
to the All-ACC Academic Team in 1990. Roberts won the Jacobs
Blocking Trophy, which is awarded to the player voted the most
outstanding blocker in the ACC in a poll of conference coaches, in each
of his last two seasons (1990 and 1991), becoming only the second
Virginia player to win the award two times.  
Also Receiving Consideration:  Bob Kowalkowski lettered at offensive tackle for Virginia from
1963-1965.  A two-time team captain (1964 and 1965), Kowalkowski was named 2nd Team All-ACC
in 1963 and 1st Team All-ACC in 1964.  He was also selected to the All-ACC Academic team in
