Shawn Moore (1987-90)

In his three seasons as a UVA signal caller, Moore set the standard for Cavalier quarterbacks. He led UVA to two New Year’s Day Bowl appearances and an appearance in the school’s first ACC championship. Moore finished his career in 1990 with a school, ACC, and NCAA individual record 41. His total of 83 touchdowns (55 passing, 28 rushing) is still a school record to this day. He led Virginia to the USF&G Sugar Bowl, as well as the No. 1 ranking in the country (Associated Press) for three straight weeks.

Moore was the first ACC quarterback to lead the nation in passing efficiency (160.7) in 1990, as he completed 144 of 241 passes for 2,262 yards and 21 touchdowns. He finished fourth in voting for the 1990 Heisman Trophy. As a senior, he was a first-team All-American and was named the ACC Player of the Year. Moore’s number 12 is one of six retired football numbers at UVA.

Ryan Zimmerman (2003-05)

A 2005 All-American at UVA, Zimmerman was a three-year letter winner for the Cavaliers and a two-time All-ACC selection. He left as the program’s record holder for single-season hits (which has since been surpassed) and is currently tied for third in program history for single-season hits (92), fifth in career slugging average (. 355 ) and eighth in career hits (250). Zimmerman was selected fourth overall in the 2005 MLB Draft and made his MLB debut with the Washington Nationals that same season, just over two months after his last college game.

Zimmerman retired from professional baseball in February 2022 as the Nationals franchise leader (including his time as the Montreal Expos) in games, hits, runs, hits, doubles, homers, RBIs, extra-base hits, and total bases. Both the Virginia Baseball program and the Washington Nationals retired the #11 in Zimmerman’s honor in 2022.
