Biography

Johnny Dawkins is one of the most decorated players in Duke history, and is regarded as a key early figure in the program’s ascent to becoming a national powerhouse. From 1982-86, Dawkins piled up 2,556 points - a mark that stood as the school’s scoring record until 2006 and remains second all-time. He was a two-time consensus All-American, a four-time All-ACC selection, and was the recipient of the 1986 Naismith National Player of the Year award. As a senior, Dawkins led Duke to the ACC regular season and tournament titles, and an appearance in the NCAA national championship game. The 10th overall pick by the Spurs in the 1986 NBA Draft, Dawkins has gone on to coaching success at Stanford and his current post at UCF.
