MOST COMMENTED

[HALL OF FAME] U.S. World Cup defender Tony Sanneh, 2005 MLS MVP and current ESPN analyst Taylor Twellman, national team midfielder and current D.C. United coach Ben Olsen, two-time MLS champion Wade Barrett and two-time Olympic gold medalist Angela Hucles are the players in their first year of eligibility for the National Soccer Hall of Fame Class of 2013 elections.

Among those on this year's builder ballot are MLS Commissioner Don Garber, Seattle Sounders coach Sigi Schmid and former U.S. national team coach Bob Bradley.

Balloting rules:

In order to be eligible for election as a player, an individual must be retired as a player for at least three years, but for no more than 10 years and have either: 1) played in at least 20 international games for the USA, or 2) played at least five seasons in an American first division professional league and been named to a postseason all-league or all-star team at least once.

The voting pool includes all past and present senior men's and women's national team coaches, all active MLS and NWSL head coaches with a minimum of four years of experience as a head coach in a first division league, MLS and NWSL management representatives, MLS Commissioner, NWSL Executive Director, U.S. Soccer CEO/Secretary General, U.S. Soccer President, designated media members, and all Hall of Famers.

Each voter can list up to 10 candidates per ballot. Any player appearing on at least 66.7 percent of ballots will earn election, while any player who does not appear on at least five percent of ballots will be dropped from the Player ballot.
