CHARGERS FOOTBALL: Q & A WITH OGEMDI NWAGBUO

by Christopher Mohr

 

August 13, 2010 (San Diego) - For every Peyton Manning or Chad Ochocinco in the National Football League, there exist hundreds of players whose opportunities to play professional football come with no guarantees. Not only do these players not get drafted in the early rounds, many do not get drafted at all and have only an outside chance of playing as undrafted free agents.

 

Chargers defensive tackle Ogemdi Nwagbuo (more commonly known as 'O.G.') is one such player. His path to the NFL is not typical of most players who play several years of youth and high school football before moving on to college and up to the pros.

FORMER AZTECS, CHARGERS COACH CORYELL 85, DIES AFTER EXTENDED ILLNESS

 

Public services July 12 at Viejas Arena on SDSU campus

 

By Chris Mohr

 

July 5, 2010 (La Mesa) - Don Coryell, football coaching legend at the collegiate and professional levels, died Thursday (July 1) at Sharp Grossmont Hospital in La Mesa after an extended illness. He was 85.

 
Often credited as the father of the modern passing game, Coryell's offensive play schemes are used in one form or another throughout the NFL. These schemes also influenced defenses, which were forced to adapt to an increase in passing offense from their opponents. 
 
Coryell's coaching career got off to a fast start as head coach of Whittier College from 1957 to 1959. All three teams he coached there won conference titles. He moved on to become an assistant at USC in 1960, before taking over the head coaching job at San Diego State in 1961.
