From Assemblymember Luz Rivas Desk – Black History Month Recognizes NFL Running Back Charles White

This week for #BlackHistoryMonth, we recognize NFL Running Back Charles White.

White attended San Fernando High School participating in track and field and football. During a California State Meet, Charles White won the 330 yard low hurdles, beating future Olympic gold medalist Andre Phillips.

After graduating, Charles White attended USC playing football, eventually winning the Heisman Trophy and other awards for being an outstanding player.

In the 1980s, Charles White got drafted into the NFL, playing for the Cleveland Browns between 1980-1984 and the Los Angeles Rams between 1985-1988.

Charles White passed away last month just before his 65th birthday. He is remembered by many of us in #AD43. #BlackHistoryMonth
