Men's Water Polo (Inducted 2004)



Dr. Glauco R. Souza, a four-year letterwinner at GW from 1990 through '93, is the one of the most accomplished men's water polo player in the program's history. More than a decade after he played his final match for the Colonials, Souza still ranks among the school's best individual records, including: most goals, game, season and career; most assists, season and career; career steals, and most points, game, season and career, and ejections drawn in a season.

Not surprisingly, in his four seasons, Souza was voted team MVP all four years, the only player in water polo history to do so. He also was selected to the Collegiate Water Polo Association All-Conference first team four straight years, while being voted CWPA's Most Valuable Player twice.

A native of Brasilia, Brazil, Souza was an excellent student as well as athlete. After gaining his bachelor's degree in 1994, he remained at GW and earned both his master's degree in chemistry ('97) and doctorate degree in physical chemistry (2003).

Souza, 33, is currently a post-doctoral fellow at M.D. Anderson Cancer Center at the University of Texas in Houston.
