Anderson, a 1977 graduate, was a four-year letterwinner who participated in sprints, relays, hurdles and distance events as a Paladin. A seven-time Southern Conference event champion, he captured titles in the 400m IH (1974, 76 and 77), the mile relay (1974 and 1976 indoor), the 600 yards (1974 indoor) and the distance medley relay (1976 outdoor). Anderson was a member of Furman's 1976 SoCon Indoor Championship team and set a league record, which still stands today, in the 400m IH (50.77), while serving as outdoor team captain and helping the Paladins to a SoCon runner-up finish in 1977. At the time of his graduation in 1977, Anderson held six school records.
Davidson, a four-year letterwinner and the Paladins' new men's golf coach, garnered Furman Male Athlete of the Year accolades in 2004 after winning individual medalist honors at the Southern Conference Championship and guided the Paladins to a SoCon team title and an NCAA East Regional berth. The 2002 SoCon Player of the Year and a 2002 and 2004 All-SoCon selection, he posted a career 73.46 stroke average over 138 rounds to rank third in Furman history. He fashioned the fourth best single season stroke average (72.24) in Paladin history during the 2003-04 campaign. Now a member of the Furman golf coaching staff, Davidson, who captured individual titles at the 2001 Carolina First Intercollegiate, 2004 Furman Intercollegiate and 2004 SoCon Championship, played professionally on the PGA Tour, Nationwide Tour, EGolf Professional Tour, and the Web.com Tour for 13 years following his graduation. He played in 147 events on the Web.com Tour, notching 16 top-10 finishes, and finishing among the top three on four occasions during his professional career.
Henderson, a standout point guard and four-year starter for the Paladins from 1989-92, helped guide Furman to a share of the 1991 Southern Conference regular season title and an NIT berth with a 20-9 overall record and an 11-3 conference mark. The Hillcrest High School product tallied 1,301 points and averaged 11.1 points per game during his career to rank 23rd on Furman's career scoring ledger. He paced the Paladins in assists all four years and led the team in steals three times. Henderson, a second team all-league choice in 1992, ranks second in school history with 474 assists and 194 steals, while holding seventh on Furman's career list by shooting 79.3% at the foul line.
Maslow, who logged playing time as a forward and as a defender during a four-year career at Furman, ranks fourth in school history with 44 career goals and fifth with 107 total points. The 2005-06 Edna Hartness Furman Female Athlete of the Year, she garnered SoCon Player of the Year honors in 2003 and captured SoCon Tournament Most Outstanding Player honors in 2002 and 2004 after helping the Paladins to a pair of league titles and NCAA Tournament berths. A 2004 NSCAA All-Southeast Region pick and 2005 CoSIDA Academic All-District selection, Maslow received a SoCon Postgraduate Scholarship in 2006. During her four-year career, she propelled the Paladins to a 59-26-5 overall record and 36-3-3 SoCon mark.
