Elected into the FSU Hall of Fame in 1999
Atlanta, Georgia, native Al Williams earned a reputation as one of the finest throwers in Florida State track and field history when he dominated meets for the Seminoles from 1960-64.

Williams set FSU school records in both the shot put and the discus while in Tallahassee, marks that stood for nearly 20 years. He finished fourth at the 1963 NCAA Championship in the shot put as a junior to earn All-American honors.

As a senior in 1964, Williams took first place in the shot put in seven meets and won the discus in four. His win in both those events on consecutive days at Florida and at Tennessee helped provide the Seminoles with two of their greatest triumphs in the track and field program's history.

Williams earned his bachelor's degree from FSU in 1964. He won a pair of prestigious awards for his service to the United States while working for the Central Intelligence Agency. He earned a Certificate of Exceptional Service and won The Medal for Civilian Service in Vietnam both in 1970. He is now retired after a successful career in healthcare administration.
