On Friday, May 11, the Chargers will host a “Celebration of Life” for Junior Seau at Qualcomm Stadium.  The team has announced the speakers who will address the crowd and share stories and memories of the late linebacker.

The list includes former Chargers quarterback Dan Fouts, former Chargers safety Rodney Harrison, who also played with Seau in New England, former Chargers running back LaDainian Tomlinson, former Bucs and Broncos safety John Lynch, and former Chargers coach Bobby Ross.

The event begins at 6:30 p.m. PT.  Gates open two hours before that, and those who plan to attend are encouraged to arrive early, since a large crowd is expected to honor the San Diego native, who died on May 2.

  1. I will love to hear Rodney Harrison’s tribute. Rodney and Junior were defense brothers on two teams and played many years together. I also truly enjoy listening to Rodney Harrison. He’s one of the most articulate, passionate, no nonsense speakers out there in the football world.

  2. I don’t care who you have to speak at this event it will NOT change who Junior Seau was not only as a person but as a beast on the field. To make it in the NFL for 20 years, especailly at LB, is unheard of. This man was truly a special individual and deserves the upmost respect despite what happen during the tragic events of last week. My prayers go out to his friends and family and may his soul RIP.

    One question, will Natrone Means be there?

    Probably in hiding to avoid that 1994 curse of the Chargers….I know i would be. 7 dudes from that SB team died (some in very bizarre circumstances) in a very short period of time….too much of a coincidence.

  4. Pretty cool that Rodney got to play with Seau on both the Chargers and the Pats. Has there ever even been anything LIKE this event for a football player? I’m looking forward to it. RIP, Junior.
