On Sunday, June 12, BoltBlitz.com will be hosting a fans meet-up at the Tilted Kilt in Mission Valley. The event will begin at 4:00 pm. The meet-ups are a great place to gather and talk San Diego Chargers football with other fans as passionate as yourself.
These meet-ups are always well attended (as you can see in the picture above) and are amply covered by local media. To date, NBC, Fox and CBS have all confirmed they will have news crews at the event. There is a lot of buzz going on with the stadium and around the team itself after the additions they made in the 2016 NFL Draft and free agency. This is a great time to come out and show your support for your team and your city.
There will be raffles of autographed Chargers merchandise and local vendors in attendance will be present so you can purchase Chargers gear at the event. Local companies 619 Clothing and Evolution Lighthouse will be among those in attendance, too. In addition to the fellowship of fans wining (well, beering) and dining together, BoltBlitz is busy assembling local dignitaries to speak on the pertinent issues facing you, the San Diego sports fan and taxpayer.
Confirmed guests at the moment include:
David Frerker is a San Diego State University graduate and award-winning sports blogger covering SDSU and San Diego sports. He is the founder of the website San Diego Sports Domination.
Johnny Boltpride will be in attendance. Johnny was inducted into the Pro Football Ultimate Fan Association Hall of Fame last year. He is a member of Bolt Pride and co-founder of Save Our Bolts and more. Visit their website to show your support: http://saveourbolts.org
Evolution Lighthouse is a national charity that aids victims of domestic violence. A portion of the proceeds made from their custom jewelry line directly goes to aid these women and children. They also have an animal lovers collection that contributes money toward violence against animals. They have close local ties with the San Diego Padres wives and the Chargers. Evolution Lighthouse will have custom made items available for purchase. Visit their website: http://evolutionlighthouse.com
Derek Togerson covers the Chargers and all local sports for NBC San Diego. You see the multi-talented sports anchor, reporter and producer on TV a lot before and after games during football season.
Die Hard Bolt Club is another devoted fan-driven organization working hard to unite fans and keep the Chargers in San Diego.
We at BoltBlitz are very excited to announce San Diego Chargers defensive tackle Sean Lissemore has confirmed his attendance for the meet-up. We want to thank Sean for taking time out of his busy schedule to spend time with us!
Much more is still in the works as the meet-up draws near. We’re continually working on adding to our guest list. This will be an event you won’t want to miss!
The Greg One
First off I would like to thank BoogaP
<https://twitter.com/BoogaP> for granting us this interview
on Bolt Blitz! To introduce to myself, I am David Frerker, the CEO and Founder of
SanDiegoSportsDomination.com, a blog for San Diego Sports. I am an avid San Diego
State Aztec fan and Journalism Media Studies major at San Diego State. My bio is
long starting out with ESPN 1700 in San Diego doing radio updated on San Diego
State, to blogging for major sports websites and being a podcast guest on many
NCAA radio shows. The following article is about San Diego State Tight End
Gavin Escobar. If you would like to know more about Escobar please check out our
draft bio which has been retweeted by NFL Scouts. If you would like to follow us
on facebook you may do so by clicking here and make sure to follow us on
twitter. We hope you enjoy our NFL Draft Bio on Gavin
Gavin Escobar is
a 6 foot 5 and 265 pound tight end out of San Diego State
University. Escobar could be the best tight end in the history
of SDSU. Escobar has caught the national media eye after his performance during
his sophomore season. Ranked first in receiving yards per game with 79. Ranked
fourth in receptions with 51. Ranked sixth in receiving touchdowns with seven.
Ranked fifth in yards per catch with 53.These numbers however did go down during
his Junior season due to a couple of factors. San Diego State quarterback Ryan
Katz tore his ACL during the Aztecs upset victory in Nevada. This injury caused
the San Diego State back up Adam Dingwell to become the starter. The Aztecs
stopped relying on the passing game and focused on the run. Escobar had 42
catches his junior season for 543 yards and an average of 12.9 yards per
Yards per Catch: 14.6
Yards Per Game: 55.3
Escobar has been
one of the key pieces of the Aztec offensive air and ground attack the past two
seasons. San Diego State quarterbacks liked to use Escobar in third down and
long situations and in the red zone. Escobar is also very good at opening up
wholes on the offensive line when he is required to run block.
NFL Combine Stats
40 Time: 4.84
Vert Jump: 32 inches
Jump: 114 inches
3 Cone Drill: 7.07
60 Yard Shuttle: 11.86
Gavin Escobar had a very slow forty time as
shown above but did have a very impressive 3 cone drill. Escobar caught every
single pass thrown to him at the NFL Combine making up for his slow forty
time. Escobar’s strength is his hands and route running. He is being compared to
Jason Witten and Tony Gonzalez by many NFL columnists. Escobar’s major weakness
is speed and he makes up for that with his height and route running ability.NFL
Fans must remember that the NFL Combine is good to asses talent but the players
NFL Pro Day is more important. San Diego State’s Pro Day is on March 19th. Right
now if the Chargers would like to select a big time tight end with major
potential this would be the time to do so. They would have to spend their second
round draft pick on Escobar because plenty of teams are looking at him. The
following NFL teams are looking at drafting Escobar Browns, Buccaneers, Broncos,
Chargers, Dolphins (Top Draft Target), Steelers, and the Jets. Escobar will be
selected in the second round of the NFL draft. He has the talent and will be a
weapon for the team that drafts him.
Many thanks go out to David for the information on homegrown product, Gavin Escobar.
On behalf of BoltBlitz.com, I’d like to say thanks and we all really appreciate your time. Be sure to follow him on Twitter and check out his website.
