Professional Football Player. Robert Paremore was a two-time All-American running back at Florida A&M University and teamed with "Bullet" Bob Hayes to form one of the fastest backfields in college football. Paremore had 11 touchdowns in 1961 and 10 TDs in 1962, leading the Rattlers in scoring. ''If Bob Hayes was the fastest in the world, Paremore was the second fastest,'' longtime FAMU assistant coach Hansel Tookes told the Tallahassee Democrat in 2004. Also a track star, Paremore was elected to the Florida Track Hall of Fame in 2000. He teamed with Hayes, Alfred Austin, and Robert Harris to post a national record 40.8 seconds in the 440 yard dash relay. He played in the NFL with the St. Louis Cardinals and in the Canadian Football League for the Calgary Stampeders. Paremore returned to give back to his native Tallahassee where he developed a subdivision on his grandfather's land and taught physical education and coached football and track and field at Godby High School.
