Biography

The youngest player on the Chargers’ roster at the end of the 2015 season, Darius Philon showed toughness and resiliency.

A little more than a month into his rookie season, a hip injury put the youngster on the “Reserve-Injured” list with a designation for return. Philon missed eight games, but he returned to play in the Bolts’ last four games.

Philon went to school at Arkansas where he redshirted for a year before playing two seasons (2013-14) for the Razorbacks. With a young son, Darius, Jr. – who was born last August – on the way, Philon decided he needed to provide for his family and tossed his hat into the NFL ring after his redshirt sophomore season. Philon rolled the dice by leaving school after just three years, but the Chargers’ sixth-round pick played well as a rookie and showed he made the right decision.

At Arkansas, it didn’t take long to see that Philon had NFL potential. His first collegiate start came as a redshirt freshman in 2013 against the No. 1 team in the nation, Alabama. That afternoon, Philon racked up a career-high eight tackles against the Crimson Tide.
