Charles leaves legacy of adaptation to injured Pilots
PORTLAND, Ore. -- Budget willing, a statue of Clive Charles should soon stand in the small plaza that fronts the soccer complex bearing the late coach's name on the campus of the University of Portland. And while it's fitting that future generations will be ushered in by a likeness of the man who built national powers out of the men's and women's soccer programs at a tiny Catholic school in the shadow of Pac-10 behemoths, this year's women's team is sculpting a fitting tribute of its own through the mediums of grass and goals.
