One day last summer, 60-year-old Charlie Morgan enjoyed a hearty lunch with the Knoxville Quarterback
Club at a local restaurant. He is used to sharing a steak with fellow UT Vols fans and serves on the boards of both the Quarterback Club and the Big Orange Club. But that afternoon, Morgan began to feel a heaviness in his chest.
“I thought it was heartburn, and I was sweating,” Morgan remembers. Sitting at his computer in his office at the Gray Hodges Corporation, where he is president, Morgan did a quick Internet search of his symptoms. “It said ‘heart attack,’ and I thought, ‘I’ve got a problem,’ ” says Morgan. “I called my wife and told her she had to take me to the hospital.”
