Dr. Coyle E. Moore was actively involved in Florida State sports programs for almost 50 years. From 1928 to 1947, the sociology professor supported sports at FSCW. When FSU was established, Dr. Moore, Dean of the School of Social Welfare from 1949 to 1968, became actively involved in the creation of a diversified program of intercollegiate competition. He served for years on the Athletic Committee and was a major force in efforts to enlarge Campbell Stadium. The school’s athletic field house was named the Moore Athletic Center after him and it carries the name today. In addition, the Moore-Stone Award is given by the Hall of Fame committee and is named after Dr. Moore and Dr. Mode Stone. The Moore family trust continues to recognize outstanding FSU football teams with a bronze plaque.
