The 43-year-old was elected to the 2021 class on the player ballot, joining Christie Pearce Rampone, Jaime Moreno and Kevin Payne.

Cherundolo played college soccer at the University of Portland before moving on to a 16-year professional playing career with one club, German side Hannover 96. He featured with the U.S. Men’s National Team for 14 years, racking up 87 caps in that span.

Since retiring as a player in 2014, he served as a youth and assistant coach for several German clubs and the German youth national teams, before the San Diego native moved stateside to take the head coaching position this year at Las Vegas Lights.

The induction is scheduled for October at the National Soccer Hall of Fame in Frisco, Texas.

Congratulations to Steve on a truly major honor.

Which school is Quarterback U? Ranking the top 10 college football programs with the best resume .
Which college football program has the strongest resume to claim the title of being Quarterback U? What school has produced the greatest trio of quarterbacks based on their collegiate careers? What prompted this question? Well, one of the great sports debates is to challenge someone to come up wi th an NFL franchise to match the Green Bay Packers' quarterback trio of Bart Starr, Brett Favre and Aaron Rodgers. There are great duos. The 49ers have Montana and Young and the Cowboys have Staubach and Aikman, but where's the third? It can't be done. Let's take that question to the collegiate ranks.
