Hunter Hall of Fame

Charlie Hren

Chuck Hren helped lead Denfeld's 1948 football team to a 9-0 record and the Minnesota State High School Football Championship.

In the city and state championship game against Central, Hren scored two touchdowns in a 25-0 victory. He was also homecoming king.

A two-way player, Hren led the Big 10 in rushing at Northwestern University and was MVP his senior year, playing with a broken leg.

He was drafted by the Philadelphia Eagles, but injury prevented participation. He entered military service, then returned to Denfeld as a social studies teacher, coaching the football from 1960 to 1969 and serving as athletic director.
