Woody Durham
For all you UNC football and basketball fans who even after his retirement, can't get enough of Woody Durham, here's a chance to hear him at least one more time.

Durham will be speaking in Greenville Thursday at the Greater Greenville Sports Club meeting at the Greenville Hilton.

After 40-years of bringing Tar Heel fans some of the most memorable moments in school history, Durham stepped down as the "Voice of the Tar Heels" on April 20. He called more than 1,800 football and men's basketball games, which included four NCAA men's basketball championships.
