Meet the Hawks: QB Charles Manny Hodges

Meet West Michigan Hawks quarterback Charles Manny Hodges. A 2008 graduate from Creston High School, Hodges has experience in numerous different sports dating back to his high school days. Those sports include football, basketball, and track.

His biggest role models in life are his hard-working parents. When not on the football field, Hodges likes bowling and enjoying time with his kids.

“What made me want to be a West Michigan Hawk was the love and dedication of everyone that I tried out for this team with,” said Hodges.

Head coach David Lange is thrilled to have a competent signal caller on the team. “Manny is a phenomenal quarterback, and a great leader. He is definitely a guy who can take charge, and is also quite a play caller,” said Lange. “It definitely takes quite a bit to get him rattled.”

“For Coach Lange to provide the opportunity to play football and give back to the community at the same time means a lot because it gives us the opportunity to show the town of Cedar Springs how good of football players we really are,” said Hodges.
