Slowing down the NFL’s leading defense is no easy task, but the San Diego Chargers almost pulled off an upset against the Denver Broncos on Sunday night, and, as their season comes to a close, so does the rookie season for the Chargers offensive tackle Tyreek Burwell. The 6-5, 305-pound tackle impressed throughout the preseason and training camp after signing as an undrafted free agent out of Cincinnati on May 12. Tyreek, a 2010 Whitman graduate, had an impressive rookie season and we look forward to hearing more about him in the future.

Congratulations Tyreek Burwell on making your dream a reality.
