My oldest son Josh married Jay & Sandra Davis’ daughter Brooke. Josh & Brooke were 2001 graduates of WHS. They have 3 children: Addison - 4, Beckett - 2 & Alivia - 6 months. Josh is a professional engineer with Halff & Associates. My youngest son Ben is a 2003 graduate of WHS. His wife Courtney was a graduate of Flower Mound Marcus. They met at West Texas A&M where she played volleyball and Ben played baseball for the Buffaloes. They have 2 children, Tatum - 4 & Gracie - 2. Ben is a 7th grade coach @ McMillan Jr High while Courtney teaches at Cox and is a varsity assistant at Wylie East for Women’s Soccer & Team Tennis. I guess I better mention my wife, Dr Donna, as the Associate Principal at Wylie East.

Comments by Chuck
I was fortunate enough to be born into a family that appreciated sports. For us the changing of the seasons was dictated by one sport ending and another beginning. My paternal grandfather loved football so much, he played an additional year after intentionally failing his classes in what should have been his Senior season. To this day, my 95 year old grandmother is the biggest Dallas Cowboy fan I know.
Really my only claim to fame can be of being fortunate and blessed. Being at just the right place at just the right time. Having coaches that were phenomenal men and role models. Having teammates that were tough, hard working, intelligent and inspiring. Any accolades that I received were directly attributable to these great men.
I suppose I would be proud of lettering in baseball as a Freshman. It was a pretty big deal to me to earn a varsity letter as a Sophomore in football. I took pride in being a 2 way starter for 2 years in football. The varsity football record of 34 – 8 is very near and dear to my heart. Lots of great baseball teams in 4 years. Glad to have been part of a baseball team that went 29-1 with the only loss coming at the hands of the eventual and inaugural 2A state champion. I was, and still am, luckily blessed. I am most grateful to all of my coaches and teammates for their support and influence that continues to this day.
