Hinds embraces Camas heritage
Former CHS coach inducted into National Wrestling Hall of Fame
Tuesday, June 4, 2013
Charlie Hinds is now a member of the National Wrestling Hall of Fame.
But the words he heard from former colleauges, wrestlers and friends during Saturday's open house celebration at Liberty Middle School, in Camas, touched his heart in more ways than any national recognition could.
"This is an award that Camas can share because it's something that Camas did," Hinds said. "I got the opportunity to work with some great coaches and athletic directors. Camas fans love their teams. We always had packed houses for the wrestling matches. We also had some amazing wrestlers who worked hard, were willing to follow and became great leaders when the time called for it. If it wasn't important to them, it would just be a wrestling match."
