bill-showboat-dumpson-small-fileAccording to the Harlem Globetrotters All-Time Roster, William Dumpson was a guard, 6’1″, from South Carolina State A&M.  Bart Cosolito, former sports editor of the Port Washington News, once said, “Bill Dumpson was probably the Jackie Robinson of Nassau [County] basketball.”

Dumpson also played Negro Leagues Baseball from 1950-1953 for a number of teams, including the New York Black Yankees.  See his profile at the Negro Leagues Baseball eMuseum for more information about his athletic careers.
