Former Tennessee State University football player Charles "Chuck" Gavin passed away at the age of 78.

Gavin competed for  the Tennessee State football team from 1954-57. A native of Lake, Mississippi, Gavin was a two-time All-American at TSU and played under legendary coaches Henry Kean and Howard Gentry.

As a Tiger, Gavin compiled a record of 32-2-1.

Following his career at TSU, Gavin became a member of the inauguarl 1960 Broncos team. He spent four seasons with the Broncos (1960-63), most notably scoring a touchdown in the 1961 season and grabbing an interception in the 1962 campaign.

Gavin,  a member of the board of directors of the Denver Broncos Alumni Association, told the Denver Post in 2009: "We just went out there and did our job. We were all just ballplayers."

After Gavin finished his playing career at TSU, he continued to follow the Tiger football program.
