Charlie Adams

Ole Miss alum and Lafayette High grad Charlie Adams was a 12th grader when the Miracle on Ice happened in February of 1980. He saw first hand how Oxford, a town that knew little of hockey, was mesmerized by the David vs. Goliath 4-3 win Team USA had over the Soviets, later named America’s greatest sports moment. Today, Charlie delivers motivational programs built on the back story of mystical Lake Placid, NY (home of the 1932 and 1980 Games) and the Miracle on Ice. He can be reached at
