Bartlett starred in the first ever meeting against the Oglethorpe Stormy Petrels in 1922. Alabama won 41–0 before 3,000 fans at Tuscaloosa.[3][4][5] Bartlett scored five of their six touchdowns in the victory. He scored touchdowns on a 26-yard run in the first, a 15-yard reception from Hulet Whitaker in the second, and on a pair of runs in the third and one in the fourth.[4] In the tie against Sewanee, Bartlett threw a 60-yard touchdown pass to Allen MacCartee.[6] The upset of Penn 9–7 on November 4 was the highlight of the year. Alabama's own website has this account of the winning drive: "Alabama came back strong in the second quarter on the back of leader Charles Bartlett. Bartlett drove the team down the field on most notably a 22 yard run from the 27 that put the ball on the Penn 4 yard line. Pooley Hubert went in the rest of the way but fumbled the ball in the endzone. Shorty Propst recovered the ball and gave Alabama the 9-7 lead that they would never give up."[7] The next week Alabama beat LSU 47–3 in what was then the largest crowd ever to witness a game at Denny Field. Bartlett was responsible for three touchdowns.[8] Bartlett was selected for the All-Southern team of Marvin McCarthy, sporting editor for the Birmingham Age-Herald,[9] and given honorable mention on the All-America team of Walter Camp.[10]
