Frances & Billy Moore

Are you an alumnus of ODU?
        Billy yes - 1984 Electrical Engineering Technology.

What is your favorite memory of ODU Athletics?
          Lots of them! We really enjoy traveling to away games and tournaments. If we had to pick the favorite, it would have to be the December 2006 game against highly ranked Georgetown at their small on campus McDonnough Field House.

Why do you support ODU athletics and its student-athletes?
         Frances - I inherited my fan status from my father. He was in the Navy and the biggest sports fan ever. When we were transferred here in 1961, he adopted the Monarchs as his team. He was an original member of the Big Blue Club and the old Monarch Club. Billy - I always played and loved sports. I started going to ODU men's games while a student in the late 60's.

What do you like most about ODU as a whole?
It's forward looking in both academics and sports.

What makes you most proud of ODU?
      On the whole, the student athletes are terrific ambassadors for the school. They are accessible and seem to love ODU and the Norfolk area.

If you could describe ODU in one word, what word would it be and why?

Is there anything else you would like to tell us about yourself?
         Frances - I'm a retired Realtor and I'm the bigger basketball fan. Billy - Retired from the Norfolk Naval Shipyard and tend to be more the football guy! Billy and Frances - Being retired, we have more time to travel, but not as much income to do so.
