RICHMOND, Va. – Former Men's Tennis standout Boris Kodjoe was welcomed into the VCU Athletics Hall of Fame on Saturday, Feb. 11.
Kodjoe is ranked 11th all time with 75 career wins in singles play. He also found success on the doubles court and is tied for third place with Francesc Lleal and Sergi Arumi with 66 career doubles wins.
During his tenure as a Ram from 1992-96, Kodjoe was ranked as high as No. 29 nationally by the Intercollegiate Tennis Association.
In regards to Boris, head coach Paul Kostin says, "He was one of the best players to ever play here. He was one of the few who never had any intentions of playing professionally, although he could have if he wanted to. Boris had other goals and succeeded in something other than hitting tennis balls, which is great to see. I really respect that."
He has since starred in movies such as "Love and Basketball" and "Brown Sugar", as well as television shows "The Last Man on Earth" and "Code Black".
Kodjoe was one of six former athletes recently inducted into the Hall of Fame. Alongside him was Martina (Nedelkova) Somoano, who also played for Kostin.
"Both of them were a stepping stone for our success from the men's and women's side. They were both exceptional student-athletes, it was a privilege and delight for me to coach both of them." – Paul Kostin
