El Capitan Alum Signs with Chargers

SAN DIEGO (9-1-14) — RYAN LINDLEY began his football career as a Lakeside-Santee Pop Warner offensive lineman way back when.

Eventually a record-breaking varsity quarterback at El Capitan under head coach RON BURNER, Lindley was heavily recruited and cast his lot with San Diego State where he was convinced he was a better quarterback by West Hills alum LON SHERIFF, who also called signals for the Aztecs.

Lindley was drafted in 2012 as a sixth round pick as a quarterback by the NFL Arizona Cardinals.

He’s come a long way and is now on the edge of earning a back-up quarterback berth with the San Diego Chargers.
