Sounders land four on Pac-12 Men's Soccer All-Century Team

The Pac-12 Conference named Sigi Schmid as its mens soccer Coach of the Century on Monday night, and three former Pac-12 players with Sounders FC ties made the conference’s prestigious All-Century Team.

Schmid led UCLA to three NCAA championships (1985, 1990, 1997) and posted a career record of 322-63-33 over 19 seasons with the Bruins. He was also named the national Coach of the Year in 1984 and 1997 and is still the winningest coach in UCLA history. He led the Bruins to 16 consecutive postseason appearances while on campus between 1980-1998.

Sounders Sporting Director Chris Henderson was also named the All-Century Team as a midfielder after starring for Schmid and UCLA (1989-90), and assistant coach Ante Razov was also named to the team as a forward after his four-year career with Schmid and the Bruins (1992-95).

Henderson was named an All-American and won a national title at UCLA as a sophomore in 1990, while Razov finished his college career with 40 goals and 29 assists with the Bruins, leading the team in scoring twice.

Nine starting players and four reserves on the All-Century Team played under Schmid at UCLA, including goalkeeper Brad Friedel, who was named Player of the Century.

Sounders defender Chad Marshall was named as a reserve defender to the All-Century team after two seasons at Stanford (2002-03). He started 39 games for the Cardinal, including the 2002 NCAA Men’s College Cup final.
