Charlie was from my Hometown of Minden, La. Also the hometown of Louis Dunbar and Raymond Tate. In High School Charlie played against John David Crow. He was a great player.

I am not old enough to have seen him play, but I have read a lot of books about the things those old AFL Oilers did on the field.
