Biography

FINS FACT
Growing up, Charles had one goal in life - to be a professional football player and was elated when he got the call to tell him he had been drafted by the Dolphins. “It meant the world,” Charles said. “Since I was six years old I was always telling my mom that I wanted to be a professional football player. Leading up to the point of the call you realize that it could happen but once you get that phone call, you get a whole different feeling. I was just like kind of speechless when they called.”
