[AWARDS] Julie Foudy, who won 1991 and 1999 world championships and 1996 and 2004 gold medals with the U.S. women's national team, was among four inductees into the U.S. Youth Soccer Hall of Fame.

The 2009 class included two founding members, Karl Grosch and Jimmie Wofford, along with former chairperson, Mavis Derflinger.

The third class will be honored at the US Youth Soccer Awards Gala on Feb. 26 as part of the U.S. Youth Soccer adidas Workshop in Fort Worth, Texas.

Foudy helped the Mission Viejo Soccerettes from Cal South win the U.S. Youth Soccer under-16 girls national championship in 1986.

Grosch wrote the initial U.S. Youth Soccer constitution, bylaws and rules and regulation in 1974 with fellow Hall of Fame member Don Greer and Robert Nessler.

Wofford, who discovered soccer when a local professional team visited her children’s school, served as the first US Youth Soccer Region III director from 1974-1979.

Derflinger teamed with Rael Vodicka to form the Washington Area Girls Soccer League (WAGS) and in the early 1980s became the first female board member of the USSF.
