1.If you could hang out with any football player past or present for a day who and why?

  • Davante Adams, the reason I choose him is for two reasons. The first reason is, I am a Packers fan. The second reason is, I view him as one of the best route runners in the league if not the best. The way he breaks down defenders in the slot and on the outside is something amazing to watch and I would love to receive tips from him on how to perfect that part of my game.

2.What is your nickname or if you don’t have a nickname what would you want your nickname to be?

  • I have two nicknames. My close family and friends call me Tre because I am Charles Headen III. A lot of my teammates, coaches, and friends at school call me Chuck.

3.What is your mindset when you are on the football field?

  • My mindset is that nobody can keep up with me because of my speed. When I’m on the field my mindset is that any ball was thrown my way I will catch it and any assignment I have on a given play whether that is blocking, catching, or running my route correctly so someone else is open I will execute it.

4. So Shippensburg are the Raiders so what Raider qualities would you say you have?

  • I would say I am a very hard worker that is something I have taken seriously my entire career since I first started playing. I think if you want to be successful at this sport or any other aspect of life you have to put the work in day in and day out. It won’t just be handed to you. My team is very big on being passionate on the field and that is another quality I would say I have.

5. How was your experience in college?

  • My college experience so far has been great. You meet and come across many people that you will remember for a lifetime. It is something I think everyone should have the opportunity to go through. I’m going into my last semester this fall and I am just hoping I am able to return to school despite the pandemic and finish out my last season and enjoy my last semester with my team.

6.If your life was a tv show what would you call it and why?

  • I would call it the life of Tre and Charles. I would call it this because in my life everyone knows me by those two names. I have a very serious side to me where I am always training and always focused on making my self a better athlete. Then I have another side to me where I am a very down to earth person if you take the time to get to know me and hang around me.

7.What is your favorite tv show?

  • I have two they are both on Netflix. Riverdale & All American.

8.What made you decide you wanted to be a football player?

  • When I was real young, I use to watch football every Sunday with my family and then after playing my first year of pop Warner I fell in love. I knew from a little age that I wanted to play this sport and that hasn’t changed since that time.

 9.If you could live anywhere in the world where and why?

  • Anywhere in Florida. I love warm weather and love going to the beach.

10. What would a team get in a player like you?

  • First, I am a player who has been overlooked his entire career and that hasn’t stopped me from grinding each day. I am a smaller receiver who has top-end track speed to run by any defender and make a play. I have always been big on speed since I was a big track guy in high school. I am also a hard worker that will excel in any position or situation a coach puts me in. Regardless of the number of plays I am given I will find my way to make a play or get into the end zone to help the team.

11.What do you do for fun?

  • Besides working out. I play 2k a lot and watch Netflix.

12.If you were an animal which animal would you be and why? 

  • I would be a cheetah because they are the fastest animals on the planet.
