Last September, the Chargers added former New Orleans Saints defensive tackle Kaleb Eulls. As an undrafted rookie in 2015, Eulls spent the season on New Orleans’ active roster, appearing in four games.
A native of Yazoo City, Miss., Eulls is a hero in his hometown. Back in 2009, early in his senior year at Yazoo County High School, Eulls disarmed a gun-wielding girl on a school bus full of elementary, junior high and high school students. In all, 22 children ages 5 to 18 were on the bus. The 14-yearold girl who produced the weapon, a .380 caliber semi-automatic, was retaliating against kids who had teased her. When the school’s bus driver was unable to calm the girl down, Eulls sprang into action, getting her to focus on him and then tackling her and taking the gun when she shifted her focus for just a moment. Eulls fled out the back of the bus with the gun, emptied its chamber and brought the chaotic scene to an end. Eulls was credited with saving countless lives.
