Note: This post is part of our guest series, The Corner, by digital media students at The University of Virginia. Today’s student contributor is Ali Donaldson.

Tuesdays during The Corner series feature two favorite Corner food items selected by a different University figure each week.  Today’s picks come from Morgan Brian, the fourth year All-American soccer player, fresh off her latest stint with the U.S. Women’s National Team, which she helped win the 2014 CONCACAF Championship.  Brian returned to Charlottesville just in time for Senior night, and is poised to lead the nation’s 3rd ranked Hoos into the post-season, beginning with the ACC tournament this Friday night.  Here are the picks of the player ESPN recently called “America’s next big soccer star.”

1) Five Easy Pieces from Littlejohn’s.  Lean ham and turkey breast with 1000 island, herb mayo, home-made cole slaw, crisp bacon and melted Muenster cheese on grilled pumpernickel. “Littlejohn’s has the best sandwiches, and I always get the Five Easy Pieces. It’s always a good meal for lunch or late night studying in the library.”

2) Plain Bagel with Sausage and American Cheese from Bodo’s.  “Bodo’s is probably the most popular breakfast place on campus. It’s a meal that I normally eat for breakfast on the days that we play games.”
