Player Feature: 5'10 Guard Joseph Charles of Beau Chene High SchoolJoe is in his first season as senior at Beau Chene after transferring from Acadiana Prep in Opelousas. Previously Joe played and started at Carencro as a freshman and sophomore before heading to Prep. This is also Joe's first season playing since his sophomore season. While attending Acadiana Prep last year, Joe was involved in a terrible car wreck in October of 2008 in which he broke his neck, I believe his 6th vertebrae. After the wreck Joe spent 6 months in a Halo in which his neck was stabalized with a screws in his forehead and neck and made immovable. After having the Halo removed in March, Joe was back to playing in May as he joined Coach Max Ivany's Texas D1 Ambassadors squad in Alabama for the Crush Elite Main Event tournament sponsored by rivals.com. Joe helped lead the team to a tournament title along with current Memphis frosh DJ Stephens and BRCC freshman William Nelson. Also on the team that weekend were San Fransico signee Cody Doolin, Northern Colorado signee Paul Garnica(San Antonio's soon to be all time leading scorer), and Lamar signee Demetris "Cleveland" Smith. In what was Joe's first time playing in a game since the wreck he showed a lot of rust but you could obviously see the talent that he had as he made several great passes, played very good defense and finished well attacking the rim.
