After an amazing game tonight, he has eclipsed 8000 yards rushing (only the 2nd to ever do that in Indiana) and is 12 away from tying the all time rushing record. Safe to say he might break 10,000.. truly an impressive feat.

Having witnessed many of his games, tonight might have been the most impressive. CG's defense is big, stout and fundamentally-sound. Charlie ran for 218 tonight - but of that, it was 128 on 15 carries in the second half. 

I wasn't expecting him to get anywhere near the record tonight, but I'm glad he'll have the opportunity to break it on his home field.

His numbers are absolutely crazy. I think there should be more schools taking notice of this young man but Army is a top notch school and a great fit for him if he decides to commit there. His highlights are fun to watch. 

 

Definitely a guy i I think most of the state can get behind when it comes to a Mr. Football candidate

I know I'd hate to have to try and tackle that monster for 48 minutes.  Such a punishing runner.

I believe I read on Twitter where Tennessee is showing interest.

If this were 1985, every major college program in the country would be lined up at the door. But he's projected as a fullback - a position few college teams use anymore. Charlie is faster than he looks. If he goes to West Point (which is one of the FCS schools where he has an offer), he'll thrive in their offense (and set himself up for life with a great education and a career as an officer in the military). Wherever he goes, he'll be a critical player for them.

Just amazing to me that today’s college world would rather use his skill set for mostly blocking ...he has the aptitude to be a power RB. Army is a great fit as well as other option based teams.

He runs the 100 meters for NP's track team. He combines speed with difficulty to take down and is a real treat to watch in the open field (his run at the end of the first half in last year's title game was one of the most impressive runs I've ever seen). I'd take Charlie Spegal on my team in a heartbeat.

I watch every Army game.  If he chooses West Point, he'll be a star.  While his skill set and speed may translate (and some don't think it will) to a major college spread team, his skill set is unquestionably perfect for Army.

Charlie Spegal is 11 yards away from breaking Sammy Mireles' state rushing record of 8,110 yards, and so he's likely to break it Friday night vs. Yorktown. 

Mireles is going to be in attendance to honor Charlie during the game. Really first-class for him to be there and be a part of this occasion. They're the only two backs in IHSAA football history to rush for more than 8,000 yards.

I'm thrilled Sammy will be in attendance. I am sure he remembers what a thrill it was when he did the same thing. https://www.heraldbulletin.com/sports/high_school_sports/mireles-sets-rushing-record-as-panthers-win-thriller/article_e8ba62ed-357a-5c82-bba4-de31c89e50f0.html

Spegal could break it on his first carry of the game.

On the 2nd carry of the game, Charlie Spegal is now the ALL-TIME leading rusher in the state of Indiana. Congrats to an amazing player and good luck the rest of the year... 10k soon.

In true sportsmanship fashion, Sammy there to congratulate Mr Spegal on passing him for the All-Time rushing leader.

Army looked really good against Michigan!  I’m a Navy guy, but I was rooting for the Knights in this one!

I think his “lack of speed” is the primary reason is is not getting interest from “major college spread teams”, no?
