Top Quotes From Chargers Fan Fest: Bolts Feel the Energy in SoFi Stadium


Hear what the Bolts had to say after Fan Fest, where fans got to cheer on the Chargers for the very first time at SoFi Stadium.

"The atmosphere jumped out to me right away. There are a lot of our fans here that were waiting to see us. When we got here, there was just a buzz around here with the concert, then you get in here for pregame and there's people here waiting for you. I felt like that made it feel a lot different for our guys. That level of focus, that level of energy, kind of got our guys going right away. I'm so glad that we did this because this is so much different than a training camp practice. It was so different than last year. That adjustment is real. I'm so glad that our operation kind of got going here. I think that you saw the guys perform well today in front of our fans." – Head coach Brandon Staley

"It was a lot of fun. We had a great time. It was just good to be back out there and, thank you to all of the fans that showed up and supported. It's just good to be back to playing football. [Having the fans present] means everything to us, to see them line up and support us." – QB Justin Herbert
