Charger’s QB Phillip Rivers: Best in the Game

By Fed Zermeno, EGP Staff Writer

The San Diego Chargers are having a tough year. With just four games to go in the regular season, the Chargers’ horrible 3-9 record has them in last place in the AFC West.
Their 17-3 loss last Sunday to the 10-2 Denver Broncos all but ended their season.
The Chargers’ one bright light remains Quarterback Phillip Rivers, who despite the odds never gives up. He’s shown himself to be a leader on and off the field.

Rivers is now the Franchise’s all-time passing leader. With over 40,000 yards, he’s also the 17th all-time passing leader in the NFL, achieving his 10th consecutive 3,000-yard this season with four games still to be played.
“I’m really looking forward to our final accomplishments for this year and next year’s team,” River’s said. “We have some great young talent and I see a lot of potential in our team,” rivers said, pointing out that the team faced with “some tough injuries this year.”
Off the field, Rivers works with foster teens to make sure they have the resources they need to carry them through tough times. In 2011, he was named one of three finalists for the Walter Payton NFL Man of the Year Award for his work with the Rivers of Hope Foundation, an endeavor he and his wife oversaw from 2010-12 to help foster children.
