Running back Kevin Parks continues to climb the charts in the UVa record books, but what arguably what makes Parks special is his toughness. He always fights for extra yards, plays hard regardless of the score, and finds a way to get in the end zone. In both of the images above, Kevin Parks scored a touchdown despite being grabbed by the facemask. Tough!
An all-time favorite, this is a photo of Ahmad Hawkins as he celebrates his game-winning touchdown. The touchdown capped off a dramatic second half, 22-point come-from-behind victory over Virginia Tech to close the 1998 season. The win marked the greatest comeback in the school’s history.
Chris Long was a dominant force on Virginia’s defensive line, at times nearly unstoppable. This photo is a close up showing his intense focus prior to the snap of the ball.
