Among those selected are Rodney Rogers, a Durham native who was ACC player of the year in 1993 before going on to a 12-year NBA career highlighted by being chosen the NBA’s sixth man of the year in 2000. Also named was Bob Waters, who coached football at Western Carolina from 1969 to 1988 after a brief career in the NFL and A.J.
