Phil Ford at Pinehurst

North Carolina Tar Heel Legend and College Basketball Hall of Famer Phil Ford was the featured speaker at the Acura Alumni Team Championship dinner on Nov. 4 at Pinehurst Resort. Among the highlights of a speech given around the moment of kickoff of the highly anticipated college football game between Alabama and LSU, Ford recounted his high school days playing basketball, football and baseball and what cut his career short in the two sports he’s not known for. He also talked about his recruitment by Dean Smith and the not-so-subtle way his mother let him know that North Carolina was the right choice for “Little Phil.”
