TALLAHASSEE, Fla. –
Seminole fan Steve Fier was recently crowned the champion of the Seminole Trivia Contest. The contest took place throughout the 2004 men’s basketball season on seminoles.com with over 900 contestants submitting answers to 13 different sets of questions.
Fier finished slightly ahead of Jo Bowman with a total of 188 points for the 13 weeks of questions. He answered each of the 15 questions correctly during ten of the 13 contests. Bowman and Rob Todd finished with 184 points and 170 points, respectively.
May thanks to Seminole historian Bob Perrone who is a fountain of information on just about every student-athlete who has worn the garnet and golf and competed for Florida State.
