Media: The .competitor has a short article on Charles as does the Philisports.com site. Visit Remembering Coach Charles Torpey at La Salle to see what people had to say about Charles. Here is some video of Charles discussing the Atlantic 10 Championships. The advice he gives at the end of the video (regarding preparation and performance) is something I remember his saying 25 years ago. When it works stay with it! Here is another video snippet.
