After 30+ years working with kids, LCA Junior High Football Coach Doug Charles is receiving an
amazing and well-deserved honor for this dedication. The Blanton Collier Sportsmanship Group has chosen Doug Charles as its 2017 Blanton Collier Volunteer Award recipient. The award will be presented at the Lexington Opera House at the Annual Kentucky Pro Football Hall of Fame ceremony on June 23.
Coach Charles means so much to the boys at LCA. He has helped countless young men realize a love and passion for football, but more importantly he has teaches them how to be Godly young men. "Coach Doug" has many gifts, but for more than 30 years he has used his love for football as a way to reach kids and instill values such as hard work, dedication, teamwork and a love for the game. And he does all this because he believes it is what God has called him to do - and he refuse to accept any payment for doing so.
The LCA football program's growth is due in no small part to Coach Charles' efforts, but more importantly he has helped them become better young men on and off the field.
