Hall of Fame Class:
1987 (Moore-Stone Award)

The Florida State University Athletic Department presents the Moore-Stone Award for Outstanding Service to Florida State Athletics to Rainey Cawthon.


A Tallahassean, Cawthon was a football star at the University of Florida and captain of the 1929 Gators. When Florida State University was created, Cawthon, a prominent Tallahassee businessman, led the drive for construction of Doak Campbell Stadium. That important step forward in the FSU program was due in large part to his efforts. In the years following, Rainey Cawthon has continued to be a vital supporter of Florida State athletics.
