Charles "Jumbo" Maddox
The Centralia Sports Hall of Fame
1987 Individual Award Winner


"Jumbo" as he was known, appeared at Centralia High School in the 1914-1915 season, the same year as Head Coach A.L. Trout.  When his four years at CHS were over (the 1914 through 1918 seasons) he led the basketball team to a combined record of 81-25 and a state title (1918).

His senior year (1918) he scored 34 points in one game and was chosen to the All-State tourney team as center.  Coach Trout referred to him as a tremendous rebounder and mentioned him often to his teams that followed at CHS.
