Charles O. "Chuck" Carroll was an American football player and attorney from Washington. He played for Garfield High School and earned 17 varsity letters while there. He would be given the title of Garfield Athlete of the First Half of the Century in 1950. He attended the University of Washington where during his junior year, in a game against the school's rival, he was part of two thirds of the tackles while also rushing for 136 yards. After scoring 15 touchdowns that year, a school record, he was named to the first-team All Coast and second-team All American. His senior year he had six touchdowns against the College of Puget Sound, scoring 36 of the team's 40 points, a UW record for points in a game by a single player. He played for all but six minutes of the 1928 season's six conference games. Stanford's coach, Pop Warner, said he had never seen "a greater football player." Carroll would go on to earn a place in the College Football Hall of Fame, the National Football Foundation Hall of Fame, and was the first inductee to the University of Washington Husky Football Hall of Fame.
