Coach Charles Lee "Father of Wrestling at Benjamin Russell"

Having joined the coaching staff in 1955, Coach Charles Lee compiled a record of winning, unequaled by any other wrestling coach in the state. Eleven consecutive State Championship Teams with 54 individual state champions.

In the fall of 1955 plans were laid to introduce wrestling in the BRHS athletic program. The seasons of 1956-57 and 1957-58 were building years for Coach Lee and the wrestling program. Not winning the state championship either of these years but placing in competition both years, the wrestlers had a sound foundation of knowledge, experience and leadership. These qualities were to pay off in the next years state match and in the years to follow.
