Today the Chargers will be heading onto the field for their season opener. For one Charger it will be an extra special day. Takeo Spikes will start his 200th game. It’s not like the 35 year old has one of the less brutal jobs in the NFL. Spikes is a linebacker. He is on the field and giving it 100% in each play.
Just four times in his 14 seasons has Spikes even missed a game. Only once has he played fewer than 12 games. Even though the 6’2″ 242 pound linebacker has never been to the playoffs he hopes to get there with the San Diego Chargers defense.
His stats hold 28.5 sacks, 19 interceptions and over 1,000 tackles. He has an amazing work ethic and is a leader for the new guys on the team. Today he will show them how it’s done for the 200th time.
Congratulations to you Takeo. We are glad you are setting this record as a Charger!
