About this title


A look at the formative days of the San Diego Chargers football team, Charging Through the AFL takes us from the team's inception and first year in Los Angeles, through the move to San Diego, and ultimately into the NFL. The Chargers were the flagship team in the American Football League. They brought a wide-open style of play to professional football, and changed the game forever with a passing attack that is the basis of the modern-day West Coast Offense. Many never before published photos, game summaries and interviews with former Charger players and coaches give us a look at the world of professional football in the 1960s, before the merger of the American and National Football Leagues. Todd Tobias brings us the Chargers as they have never been seen before, as Sid Gillman, John Hadl, Ron Mix, Earl Faison, Ernie Ladd and many more tell of football and life during the most important decade in pro football history. Forward by Pro Football Hall of Famer Lance Alworth.
