He earned seven letters during his time at Central, three in golf and four in hockey. In 1964, he set the school scoring record. After graduation, Chuck received a full hockey scholarship to the University of Minnesota, where he played from 1964-1968.

    Chuck said what set GF Central apart from all other schools was their coach, Serge Gambucci. His favorite memory is playing in and winning state championships and the friendships that still continue today.
