Biography

The 2016 NFL season was akin to a redshirt year for Chargers center Max Tuerk. A third-round pick out of USC, Tuerk spent the year learning the nuances of the position behind veteran Matt Slauson.

At Southern Cal, Tuerk (pronounced Turk) was a three-time All-Pac-12 center and a two-time team captain. Tuerk entered his senior season at USC as an All-America candidate, but his year was cut short by a knee injury in the Trojans’ fifth game of the season against Washington.

The versatile Tuerk finished his Trojans career with 38 starts in three-plus seasons, including 18 at center, 14 at left guard, five at left tackle and one at right tackle. As a junior, he was chosen USC’s Offensive Lineman of the Year.
