Hall of Fame Class:
1990 (Coaches and Administration)

 

He finished his 33-year career at Florida State as a Vice President, but Pat Hogan’s roots were in athletics. He was affectionately called the University’s Chief “Friend-Raiser”,and people around FSU could have given him that tag as early as 1952 when he first stepped onto the FSU campus as a student, taking a job as an assistant in the Sports Information Office. While Florida State’s athletic program bounded from new-born to major college contender, Hogan cultivated the public image and opened wide the FSU gates to a statewide press corps that for years had known only one college program. During his climb to the Vice Presidency he never forgot his roots in FSU sports.
