Over 500 season ticket holders along with the Chargers own
In front of a hushed crowd, Maribel Schoonover, a season ticket holder since 2007, was chosen as the winner of a trip to New York City on Saturday to announce the Chargers’ 4th round draft selection at Radio City Music Hall. The prize is just one of many eligible rewards that come with being a Chargers season ticket holder.
“I’m so excited!” Schoonover said moments after learning she’d be heading to the Big Apple. “My stomach hurts and I can’t believe that I’m going. I’m just thrilled.”
Schoonover giddily came up to the stage and was greeted by Butler, who hugged and congratulated her.
“I’m lost for words,” she said. “I really don’t know what to say. I’m really so excited and (hopefully) we’ll have good luck making the fourth round pick.”
The other highlight of the night was the Chargers making their first round draft pick of DJ Fluker. As soon NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell announced his name on the giant screen, confetti rained down on the crowd who cheered and screamed “FLUUUUUUKE.”
