Wacasey, what a dude, can't believe you left us so young, I know you were in your sixties but that's just too early man.  

Never forget in the sixth grade after school one day Donald Fisher, (wonder whatever happened to Donald?) showed up at your house and he had taken his parents 49 Plymouth, a loud dog stick shift with crazy Donald behind the wheel.  So, sure we did, old Wacasey and myself jumped in and went riding around Browning Heithts with Donald and the next day Mr. Wacasey comes to Browning Heights to tell Mr. Smith he didn't want Charles running around with me or Donald anymore.  Mr. Wacasey said it was all my fault I was a bad influence on Charles, whatever.  

Charlie was a hell of an athlete, speed, determination, good work ethics.

Charlie was a good guy and I am sure he turned out to be a good man, I didn't have much contact with him later in life.  But he was a good friend and I miss you cause we had some good times in spite of your dad.

Charles was a good one.   In later years when Coach Nowland and I would visit, our first comment would be. 'Wacasey,  KEY the end".  as a defensive back, his first key was the end, if he blocked, he came up for run, if he released, he played pass.  He always wanted to be in the middle of a play, so sometimes he (forgetting the end) he got beat on a pass.  He gave you all he had and thats all you could ask.

Charlie Wacasey had unbelievable speed.  In 9th grade football he scored in every game and often mulitple times; usually 24 dive behind Ray, and later in the season a counter 25 dive to the left side.  I am not aware of any athelete in Birdville who scored more touchdowns as a 9th grader than him.  I can't remember how or where, but  Charlie had a repution for speed that was known all the way to the Texoma area; he must have ran in a track meet there.
