Charley Frazier Obituary: Charlie Frazier, a legend in both track and field at Texas Southern University and in professional football, passed away at the age of 83. Frazier was a native of Angleton, Texas, and he and fellow TSU great Homer Jones were both track stars during their time at the university. At Texas Southern, Frazier’s 100-yard dash time was 9.4 seconds, and his 220-yard sprint time was 20.8 seconds. At the Drake Relays in 1961, the quick runner took first place in the sprint medley (3:22.4), the quarter-mile (41.2), and the half-mile (124.4) relays. His teammates on the winning team were Homer Jones, Barney Allen, and Lester Milburn. He had astonishingly good speed. In 1962, Frazier did not get selected in the draft, but he was able to earn a roster spot with the Houston Oilers, his hometown team, where he played until 1968. He was selected for the 1966 AFL All-Star team after finishing the year with 12 touchdown receptions, more than 1,200 receiving yards, and being voted into the team. In 1969 and 1970, Frazier was a member of the American Football League team the Boston Patriots, which is now known as the New England Patriots. Charlie Frazier coached high school and college sports at Rice, Tulsa, and Texas Christian universities. He was most recently at John Reagan High School in Houston. After 207 receptions and 29 touchdowns during his career, he called it quits in the professional football league with 3,452 receiving yards.   Full Obituary

Charley Pride Obituary: Born in Sledge, Mississippi, Charley was the fourth of 11 children of Mack (Fowler) Pride and his wife, Tessie (nee Stewart). His parents were sharecroppers who cultivated peanuts, corn and cotton. They lived in a house that Charley described as more akin to a shack, with the children sleeping three and four to a bed, and Sledge was small and deeply segregated. On Saturday evenings Mack loved listening to the Grand Ole Opry, a popular radio show broadcast from the Ryman Auditorium in Nashville, Tennessee, featuring a selection of country singers. As a child Charley sang the songs he learned off the radio and, at the age of 14, bought a guitar. Though he was complimented for his voice, he discounted the possibility that a black man would be welcomed into what was then considered white people’s music. Baseball looked like a more promising escape route from sharecropping, and in 1952 he was signed by the Memphis Red Sox, of the Negro American League, as a pitcher. Pride met his wife Rozene Cohran, a cosmetologist, in Memphis and they married just as he was drafted into the US army in 1956. Discharged in 1958, Pride returned to Memphis but was prevented from rejoining the Red Sox by an arm injury. He then approached Sun Studios, where Elvis Presley was discovered. The studio made a recording of him, but declined to release it.    Full Obituary
