DEAN WEBER says...

Charles came to us a couple years after I became the trainer for the Razorbacks. Not only was he a fine athlete and football player, but certainly one of best people that we've had on any of our squads in the 45 years I've been with Arkansas. We have lost a true gentleman and an outstanding representative of Razorbacks athletics. Dean Weber
