The upcoming season promises to be an exciting time both on and off the field for the Los Angeles Chargers. The team is fortunate to have an outstanding group of players who are leaders in working with the community. These players have taken the team's desire to be a strong community partner to the next level and the Chargers are extremely proud of their dedication and initiative. Many players have gone the extra step by donating time and money to participate in the Chargers annual Community Corner program, purchasing season tickets for charity. Thanks to their contributions and a generous donation from Chargers' Owner Dean Spanos approximately 2,000 tickets will be donated to youth organizations this season. Each participant receives a ticket to the game and a free hot dog & soda courtesy the Los Angeles Chargers.

Philip Rivers is an amazing leader both on and off the field. Coming off another stellar season in which he set personal bests in passing yards (4,792) and completions (437), the savvy, 13th year veteran is no doubt the key to the team's offense. The Chargers’ gunslinger is also very active in the community, participating year after year in charity events and supporting programs that specifically assist foster children. Rivers also finds it important to give children a chance to experience the fun of professional football in person, which is why he has participated in the Community Corner program every year since joining the Chargers.
As the Chargers career leader in receptions, receiving yards and receiving touchdowns, Antonio Gates is perhaps the best tight end the game has ever seen. Entering his 14th season, Gates continues to make an equally big impact in the community. The former Kent State basketball standout works locally with hundreds of children each year to promote a healthy lifestyle and fight childhood obesity and has even been featured on NBC’s Biggest Loser. This season, Gates Community Corner tickets will provide kids with the opportunity to attend a Chargers football game for the first time as he works with organizations dealing with underprivileged children.
Hoping to capitalize on what was an exciting 2015 season before being sidelined by an injury, Keenan Allen is once again healthy and ready to have his best year yet in 2016. General Manager Tom Telesco even felt so confident in Allen’s abilities that he signed the Wide Receiver to a four year extension this offseason. This will be the former California Golden Bear’s second straight year participating in the Chargers Community Corner, and he’ll be distributing his tickets to the Boys & Girls Club and several other non-profits in the county.
The one thing any team with a young defensive unit needs to excel is great leadership from veteran players…enter Corey Liuget. 2016 will mark the lineman’s sixth season in the league. Throughout his career, he’s showcased consistent production averaging 40 tackles and 4 sacks in each his previous years. Off the field, the 25 year old enjoys fishing, yoga (believe it or not) and working with non-profits. This season, Liuget will donate his tickets to his ‘2 Liuget 2 Quit’ platform through Athletes for Education, which helps at-risk youth with a variety of mentorship programs.
After a 2015 season in which he ranked second on the team in sacks, tackles for loss and quarterback hits, Jerry Attaochu simply continues to improve. Off the field, the Georgia Tech product is one of the most active players in the community…both in San Diego, and his hometown of Washington D.C.. He has partnered with organizations to promote healthy teen relationships, raise awareness for Diabetes research, and even assists with Glory’s Hope Sickle Cell Foundation, which was founded by his father. This will be Jerry’s first time participating in the Community Corner program, and he’ll be donating his tickets to various youth groups throughout the community.
First year San Diego Charger, and long-time ball hawk Dwight Lowery has put together an impressive resume over his 9 year career. In all, he’s logged 383 tackles, 16 interceptions, and 7 forced fumbles. Despite his success as playmaker, the veteran defensive back has always been dedicated to helping the community in any way he can. Lowery spends his free time mentoring youth, hosting football camps for kids, and assisting with non-profit fundraisers. This year Lowery, will be donating 20 Community Corner tickets each game to youth focused non-profits.
This March, the Chargers landed former Cleveland Browns big-play wide receiver and kick returner Travis Benjamin on a four-year deal. A legitimate home-run threat, Benjamin has scored 13 touchdowns during his career and the average length of his touchdowns is an astonishing 52.3 yards per score. Off the field, law enforcement appreciation and breast cancer are important causes to Benjamin as his mother is a sheriff’s deputy who has survived breast cancer. In his first season as a Bolt, the Florida native will be donating his Community Corner tickets to the Monarch School for homeless youth.
Danny Woodhead completely embodies the phrase: ‘Dynamite comes in small packages.’ Frequently knocked for his size instead of being praised for his playmaking ability, the former Division II running back from Chadron State has always strived to prove his doubters wrong. While 2015 1st round pick Melvin Gordon took a majority of the handoffs last season, Woodhead significantly elevated his role in the passing game – recording career highs in receptions (80), yards (755) and TDs (6). Woodhead is donating his 2016 Community Corner tickets to various religious youth groups.
Perhaps no player has been more active in the San Diego Community than Pro Bowler Safety/Special Teamer and team captain, Darrell Stuckey. Since arriving with the Bolts in 2010, the University of Kansas alum has participated in over 50 team community events, and countless others on his own. Stuckey was even nominated as the team’s Walter Payton Man of the Year, the NFL’s highest honor for a players impact in the community. This will be his second straight year participating in the Community Corner program, and he’ll be donating his tickets each week to various religious youth organizations. Learn more about Darrell’s personal mission and charity work by visiting www.darrellstuckey.com/living4one.
The team’s reigning lineman of the year, Joe Barksdale will be looking to build on the consistency and toughness that he showed last year while starting all 16 games at Right Tackle. Along with being a skilled technician at offensive line play, Joe is equally talented at playing guitar. This season, he’ll even be channeling his love of music into fundraising opportunities as he hosts open mic nights to benefit the Fender Music Foundation. 2016 will mark Barksdale’s first year in the Community Corner program, and he’ll be donating his tickets each week to several different youth charities.
Protecting Philip Rivers’ blindside in the AFC West is no easy task. However, the Chargers have a player in King Dunlap who is happy to embrace the challenge. Currently the tallest player in the NFL at 6’9”, Dunlap is easy to spot at events in the Community. Entering his 9th year in the league and 4th as a Charger, the former Auburn Tiger has participated in bike giveaways, Play60 events, and holiday shopping sprees throughout his time as a Bolt. Enrolling in the Community Corner for the first time this year, King will be donating tickets each home game to non-profits focused on assisting inner-city youth.
2016 Rookies Club
Excited for an opportunity to contribute both on and off the field, select members of the 2016 Rookie class has come together to join the Community Corner program. Compiled of both draft picks and undrafted gems, the Rookies Club meets each week during the season with guest speakers, special presenters, and even noted Chargers alumni, all to better prepare themselves for life as a professional athlete. Look for these young players in the community as they help with Junior Chargers Training Camps across San Diego County throughout the 2016 season.
