It's Tony Dawson's birthday, born in Kinston, North Carolina in 1967. As a child Dawson was hit by a car. He broke his femur, and his foot was nearly severed. He underwent three major operations which included bone grafts from his hips. Following the surgery, his left leg was more than an inch shorter than his right. Despite his physical limitations, the 6-7 Dawson excelled at basketball. Following high school he played for Gulf Coast CC and the Florida State University. He played 60 games at FSU and scored in double figures 58 times. His career average of 19.4 points per game is 6th all-time at FSU.
