Today US Soccer announced the nominees up for the US Soccer Hall of Fame. On the list are four former Wizards players. Included in the list is one current member of the Wizards staff, technical director and head coach Peter Vermes. Vermes played in eastern Europe and MLS during his playing career at both forward and defender. He started his career as a forward before moving to defense and winning defender of the year in 2000 with the Wizards. He appeared 67 times for the national team scoring 11 goals.

Also nominated are Mike Burns, Chris Henderson, and Roy Lassiter. All three players spent two seasons in KC, Burns and Lassiter for the 2001 and 2002 season while Henderson was on the team in the 1999 and 2000 season. Henderson played the most, appearing in 61 games for the Wizards and appearing 73 times for the national team. Burns appeared in 43 games for KC and 75 times for the national team. Lassiter appeared 25 times for KC and 30 for the US.

Good luck to the four on their potential election.
