Fomer Christian County Basketball Great Charles Torain Passes Away

Former Christian County athletic great Charles Torain has passed away.

Torain was a standout basketball player at Christian County, earning All-Second Region honors in 1967 and 1968.  He graduated as the school's all-time leading scorer in basketball before he was passed in 1981.

Torain initially went to Bethel University but transferred to Trevecca Nazarene in Nashville where he played three years of basketball and two years of baseball.

Torain played basketball his freshman year for Coach Bill Boner, who went on to become a U.S. Congressman and mayor of Nashville.

He averaged 17.8 points his junior season and 19.7 points. He graduated as the Trojans' all-time leading scorer and rebounder, marks which stood for 10 and five years, respectively.

Torain was inducted into the Trevecca Nazarene Athletic Hall of Fame in 2002.
