I loved me those SWC Cougars! I had high hopes for Chuck’s career in the NFL. I think both the Eagles and the Bucs saw him more as a fullback though. He was a gifted receiver too, but looked like a downhill bowling ball rolling down the field. Sometimes you get this feeling that if you just reach out to some of these guys, they will respond to your personal connection, and with this one I was quite happy that he did.
