UVA to Retire Jerseys of Schaub, Miller, and Ferguson in 2012

Posted: Updated:

The University of Virginia will retire the jerseys of former football greats Matt Schaub, Heath Miller, and D'Brickashaw Ferguson this season.

They'll also be honored with plaques on Legends' Walk in the north end of Scott Stadium.

Schaub finished his Cavalier career with 22 school records, including most passing yards and touchdown passes and highest completion percentage.

He earned ACC Offensive Player of the Year in 2002 and is the starting quarterback for the Houston Texans.

Miller re-wrote the ACC record book with most receptions, yards, and touchdowns for a tight end. He won the John Mackey Award as nation's top tight end in 2004.

Ferguson earned first-team All-American as a senior in 2005 and started 49 games at UVA, a school record for offensive linemen.

He's played his entire NFL career with the New York Jets.

Ferguson and Schaub will be honored Saturday at halftime of Virginia's game against Richmond.

Miller will be honored at halftime of UVA's home game against Maryland October 13.
