CHARGERS WIN FIRST PRE-SEASON GAME 20-6 IN "STRANGE" GAME
It was our first preseason game of the season against a Bulldog team that already had 2 games under their belts. they received the ball first and the defense was able to hold them to 3 and out forcing a punt on 4th down from the bulldogs 25. Pressure on the punter forced a short kick where Shag Russel caught the ball on the Bulldog 48 and returned it for the Touchdown. we went for two and didn't convert making it 6-0 just a couple minutes into the game. After the kick off the defense once again held for a 3 and out and after another short kick we get the ball on the Bulldog 35. First play from scrimmage Shannon King is forced out of the pocketto his right, with the defender about to lower a hit he launches the ball in the end zone connecting with Shaq Russell for the 35yd TD. The two point conversion failed and we were up 12-0 only4:30 into the game.
We started doing a lot of substitutions after this to get looks at as many players as we could. the offense was pretty stagnant the rest of the first Quarter and right before the end a bad center/qb exchange gave the Bulldogs the ball on our side of the field for the first time all game
at our 42yd line. After a 9 play drive aided by a pass interference call on our 19 the Bulldogs Jose Malave was bale to score on a QB sneak followed by a failed two pt conversion to make it 12-6. First play after the kick off a Bulldog Defender was injured trying to make the tackle, the game was stopped as he was evaluated and after about a 15 10 minute delay an ambulance was called and both teams coaches and refs decided to take the half time at that about with 11:42 left in the 2nd quarter.
Turn overs killed us after the break even fumbling the 2nd half kick off but I defense remained solid and didn't allow any additional points in the third quarter and allowing less than 100 yds for the entire game. We were able to cap off the scoring with a 2yd TD run by Eddie Bailey capping of a 15 drive mired by penalties. The game was called after the third quarter due to the fact that guys on the Bulldogs team were fighting each other. All in all we only played a little over 2 quarters of football.

Last year alone they were able to give out shoes to over 500 kids. Another facet of this organization is helping at risk youths develope life skills both in and out of school to allow them to be able to strive in todays society. The Chargers will be helping with both areas of this organization, we will have a barrell at all of our home games so that fans can bring shoes that we can have sent in for re-distribution. Chargers players will also serve as mentors in various programs that Kicks4Kids have for their youths.
