As well as Houston, Texas and Denver, Colorado. Many people have asked “How and when did I decide to sit down and put pencil to paper?” Well, it was set in motion by one single telephone call from Matthew Bonnette, SID, with McNeese State University in 2014.

    About the Author:
    Charles Ray Jefferson was born May 5, 1957, in New Orleans, Louisiana. He was raised in Baton Rouge. He is the third child of Saymon and Arcenia Jefferson, Sr. He was educated in the east Baton Rouge parish public school system where he attended Reddy Elementary, McKinley Junior High School, Istrouma Junior High School and graduated from Capital Senior High School. Early during his high school years his skill as an effective defensive back, would quickly be cut short by a right ankle fracture during a jamboree football game. To the best of his recollection this was a practice game which lasted approximately twenty to thirty minutes. (Imagine that !) Special thanks to coach Roman Bates, II, who spoke and reached out to numerous universities around the country, on my behalf, Charles was offered a football scholarship to McNeese State University in 1975 where he studied Radio Television, and Education. During his four-year collegiate career, Charles played in the first ever Independence-Bowl in Shreveport, Louisiana in 1976, finished with twenty career interceptions to his credit, became a three-time All SLC (Southland Conference) defensive back and earned Honorable Mention All-American with three different sporting magazines. In the Spring of 1979, Charles was drafted by the Denver Broncos in the fourth-round, becoming the First African American football player from McNeese State University, to be drafted to play in the National Football League (NFL). Charles, went on to enjoy three years with the Denver Broncos and Houston Oilers. After Charles, pro-football career ended, he returned home to Baton Rouge, Louisiana where he worked for Leon Picard Chevrolet as a new car sales person for approximately 1.5 years. Next, he ventured out to try his hand in a different career as a courier/salesperson with Emery Worldwide Courier Service for approximately three years and embarked on a new job career with Fisher Service Company as an Instrument Control Valve Technician for twenty years. Again, the time had come for Charles to move on. This time he would except a job with Westgate Instrumentation and Electrical Group at Dow Chemical in Plaquemine, Louisiana as a Gas Monitor/ PH-Water Treatment Technician for 3.5 years. Afterwards Charles, was fortunate enough to return to something he had enjoyed some twenty years earlier. In September of 2012, Charles became employed with Satsuma Controls and Valves as a Control Valve Technician. After, four years with Satsuma, Charles resigned due to a medical condition. Then one summer day afternoon, some thirty-five years, since finishing his career at McNeese State. Charles, received a telephone call informing him that he had been nominated for induction into the McNeese State University Football Hall of Fame Class of 2014. Charles, also learned that he had been named to the SLC’s 1970 All-Decade Football Team. Later he would learn he had been named to the ALL- 75th Defensive Back Team.
    So it’s now 2017. Charles is retired due to a medical condition called pulmonary embolism. However, it hasn’t kept him from pursuing his next ventures. As author/Researcher, and songwriter, I must admit I like it! Writing that is. So as to time passes, I will continue to define my legacy in my Lord and Savior (Jesus). Amen!!!
