There were 11 Inductees into the Guilford County Sports Hall of Fame, Monday, September 17, 2007.

Bill Furcron – Coached the Dudley basketball program for a generation, playing for four state titles and winning twice in a seven-year span from 1956-1961 with a team considered one of the greatest in high school basketball history. A team that included Curly Neal, Lou Hudson and Charlie Sanders, all of whom were previously inducted into the Guilford County Sports Hall of Fame.

The Sports Commission was unable to find or contact any relatives of Coach Furcron and consquently had not scheduled someone to accept in his memory. Fortunately, Edward Jones, a former player (1961-63) was in attendance and stepped forward to say a few words about his former coach.
