About Rob Ukrop:

An instrumental figure with the Richmond Kickers since the club’s inception, Rob Ukrop’s name is synonymous with soccer in the community.  The Kickers all-time leading scorer, he currently acts as the President of the Board of Directors and coaches the Kickers U-16 Girls Elite team.

With a professional career that spanned over a decade, Ukrop made 222 appearances and tallied 63 goals in a Kickers uniform.  Drafted by the New England Revolution (MLS) in 1996, he scored the first two goals in history of the franchise before returning to Richmond midseason.  Posting a career high 17 goals and six assists in 1995 en route to USL and U.S. Open Cup Championships, the Richmond, Virginia native claimed both League and U.S. Open Cup MVP honors that season.

A 1993 graduate of Davidson College, Ukrop is considered to be the greatest soccer player to wear a Wildcat uniform.  Earning the Adi Dasler Award as the most outstanding college senior, he was runner-up for the Hermann Award in 1992.  The two-time All-American holds Davidson career records for goals, assists and points. 

Earning numerous accolades throughout his career, Ukrop is a member of the USL Hall of Fame, The Collegiate School Athletics Hall of Fame, the Davidson College Athletics Hall of Fame and the Virginia-DC Soccer Hall of Fame.

Committed to the youth in the community, Ukrop has made nearly 2,000 appearances over 15 years at school festivals, DARE graduations, SOL kickoffs, Cub Scout Banquets, church and youth group gatherings and numerous elementary and middle school graduations.  He is active with Meals on Wheels, Richmond Police Athletic League, Communities in Schools-Richmond, Richmond’s Street Soccer team, and the Young Adults Alzheimer’s Association and is a featured speaker on goal setting and reminding young people of the importance of living a healthy lifestyle.
