Charles Fleming (American football)

Charles Francis Fleming (May 28, 1877 – May 17, 1944) was an American football player, and a starting quarterback and placekicker for the University of Notre Dame.[1]

Fleming began the 1898 season by leading Notre Dame to a 5-0 victory over Illinois, including kicking the winning field goal. But following a win over Michigan State, the team traveled to Ann Arbor for the first time only to be shut out by Michigan, 23-0. Later, Fleming's team was matched up against Indiana for the first time, but fell to the Hoosiers, 11-5. The team would finish the season with a mark of 4-2.

Following his graduation, Fleming settled in Fort Dodge, Iowa, and later in River Grove, Illinois.
