Charles was born on June 6, 1970 in Jacksonville, FL.  He moved with his family to Church Point in 1980 and graduated from Eunice High School in 1988.  There he won an Academic All State Award in football and received a scholarship to the Louisiana Scholars' College at Northwestern State University where he graduated in 1992.
