My daughter received a scholarship today and Charlie Batch was the presenter. He is a pretty good speaker, and treated the recipients and us parents pretty well. I came away impressed.

Okay, why didn't my pic work? I have never been able to post a pic. I am not very computer literate!

I would have loaned you my Lions Charlie Batch jersey. He held the Lions single game record for most passing yards until just last year
(in 2001 he was 36 of 62 for 436 yards at Arizona.)

Animal, when you put a picture up, you need to put the actual location of the picture, not the page the picture is located on. You can find the location by right clicking on the picture and it will give you some options like View Image Info. That's where you get the address.

I think Charlie was unappreciated in Detroit, and feel very luck that the Steelers were able to get him as a backup as early in his career as they did. I really think he could have had some success as a starter.

When he spoke to us, he said that when he was a junior in college his little sister was killed in homewood, grabbed by a gang member and used as a human shield.

Great picture!! He is one of the good guys in sports.

I had forgotten that story about his sister. I remember his first game on Monday Night Football. Scott Mitchell was ineffective and pulled. Charlie injected some emotion
and excitement.. he and Barry Sanders in the backfield.

Thanks. It's funny. My daughter did not even know who Charlie Batch was...lol

He was REALLY GOOD with all the kids in attendance though.

When my cousin received a football scholarship is Eastern Michigan, Charlie congratulated him via Twitter. I thought that was pretty cool of him.
