COLLEGE

No. 14 Virginia
<<< No. 13 Wisconsin · No. 15 Mississippi>>>

Frank Beamer and his special teams cast a long shadow in Virginia. The 1999 Hokies, led by Michael Vick and Corey Moore, played for the national title. Among the early Cavalier greats is "Bullet Bill" Dudley, who led the nation in points scored in 1941 and was a two-time All-American. Virginia's first bowl game didn't come until 1984, after George Welsh (134-86-3) took over as coach.

Keith Davis


Virginia fan Keith Davis: I still e-mail my high school coaches before the Lee High game (I played for Fort Defiance) to wish them good luck and to ensure that they let the guys know how important that game is. Saturdays in Virginia are made for college football. There is nothing like going to a Division III game. It's a family affair. It's like going to a lawn party. Read more from Keith

HIGH SCHOOL
No. 8 Virginia
<<< No. 7 Louisiana · No. 9 Alabama>>>

Lawrence Taylor attended Lafayette High School in Williamsburg. Spring 2006 D-I signees: 51. Fall 2006 public high school football teams: 298.
