It was my good fortune earlier this week to have the chance to interview San Diego Chargers quarterback Philip Rivers. He acknowledged that it has been a bit of an adjustment with a new head coach this offseason, but he is determined to get his team to the playoffs this season and expectations be damned. Rivers was in Los Angeles to present the Gatorade high school boys athlete of the year award which ended up going to Andrew Wiggins, which was not a surprise to me. Wiggins was my favorite to win the award, but you never know what can happen during an awards night. Stay tuned for an interview with Wiggins later this week and my Rivers’ interview below.

Rivers knows that he has turned the ball over a bit too much the last few years and it my have cost Norv Turner his job. Life moves on though and Rivers seems quite focused in another offseason where he went on vacation a bit sooner than he wanted to. He has said he does not want to be watching in January any more, but he will have to get that done on the field.
Much thanks to the Gatorade company for allowing me to cover the event and I will look forward to it next year.
