1989 (Moore-Stone Award)

The Florida State University Athletic Department presents the Moore-Stone Award for Outstanding Service to Florida State Athletics to Louis Hill. A life-long Tallahasseean who grew up about one block from campus, Louis Hill has played one of the largest and most enduring roles in the development of Florida State athletics. Twice president of Seminole Booster Inc., Hill says his interest goes back to the time the school was FSCW, “when it had all the girls.” He bought original season tickets when Campbell Stadium was built, and still holds tickets for the same seats. Now he says of FSU and its people: “I just love’em, and love anything about ’em.” A former president of the city’s chamber of commerce, Hill for many years was president of People’s Bank, which under his leadership made more student loans – most of them to FSU students than any bank of its size in the nation.
