Awards
Elected into the FSU Hall of Fame in 1986
Ralph Chaudron was true athletic pioneer at Florida State. The Pensacola High star came to Tallahassee and in 1947 his name appeared in write ups and box scores in three sports, football, basketball, and baseball. Ralph started FSU's first football game and made the first ever interception for the garnet and gold. He played both ways from 1947 through 1949, starting at both quarterback and tailback as well as safety. Ralph was the floor general of the first Seminole basketball squad and played baseball as well in 1947. After graduation, he returned to Pensacola and has become one of the best known coaches in the state. He was president of the Florida Athletic Coaches Association and a member of that body's Hall of Fame. Chaudron has been a devoted Seminole Booster and thus his contributions to Florida State athletics span its entire 40-year history.
