Awards
Elected into the FSU Hall of Fame in 1992
One of the truly outstanding "student-athletes" ever to attend Florida State University, Dr. Ray Bellamy continues to represent his alma mater with pride and dignity. Dr. Bellamy will go down as one of the more consistent and outstanding tennis players in the history of the school. He was the captain of the tennis team and No. 1 player in 1960 and 1961, his junior and senior years. He lost only three matches during that two-year span.

Ray was a model student and athlete during his undergraduate years of 1957-61. While pursuing rigorous pre-medical studies he was also a strong campus leader. He was vice president of his senior class, a member of the Gold Key Honorary Society and ODK Honorary Society. In addition Ray was president of the Sigma Chi fraternity.

Dr. Bellamy went on from Florida State to serve as a flight surgeon in the United States Navy and continued his fine tennis career. He was an All-Navy doubles champion and played on the All-Navy team in 1967 and '68.

After returning the state of Florida to begin his practice, Dr. Bellamy became the state 35 and older singles and doubles champion during the 1970s. Dr. Ray Bellamy stands as a shining example to those who seek to get the most from both athletics and academics.
