Hall-of-Fame high school coach Charlie Williams passes away

The Advance News Journal got word Monday that longtime RGV high school Football Coach Charlie Williams passed away Sunday night.

Reached by phoneTuesday, one of Williams’ former players at PSJA, Gilbert Muzquiz, says his former coach was always a special sort of guy.

“Charlie came from a poor, humble family in Refugio, Texas, so he was able to relate to the many poor players in this community. That was his biggest asset in getting us to believe and follow him. He was an innovator on both offense and defense, and his record proves it.”
