Damion Square, Donnie Jones and Justin Jackson Inside the Locker Room with Desiree




This week was big, an AFC West showdown on prime time in Kansas City for Thursday Night Football vs. The Chiefs.  On the ITL 12-11-18, Inside the Locker Room at the Chargers HQ’s, a special on The Desiree Show. I spoke with Damion Square, Donnie Jones and Justin Jackson.

There is truly something special I have seen in this locker room this season and on the field, this team has a phenomenal unity. It’s tight, there is mutual respect, a fight together and a special something one can’t quite put a figure on, the ingredients of a championship team.

Donnie Jones, Damion Square and Justin Jackson.

I asked Donnie Jones about the specialness of this team, the Super Bowl and BCS Champ told me ” Probably the best locker room I’ve been apart of”

On the similarities of championship teams he has been apart of  three time  BCS Champion, Damion Square simply stated,
“Respect! We respect each other”

Also, some cool background on Justin Jackson’s current and past jerseys.

The ITL is a regular special on the show.

Football is Family, Especially on this Giving Tuesday

Giving Tuesdays is all over the NFL, players out in full force on their only days off, giving back to the community!

Last Tuesday my sister Dr. Patricia Riba and her clinic, Serving Kids Hope, the recipients of this special gift. As LA Chargers nose tackle and Bama 3 x BCS Champion Damion Square was at the Discovery Cube in Santa Ana helping to beat childhood obesity with healthy cooking options for game days and all the holidays.

This is always something that touches my heart, many or most of the amazing giving that goes on all over the league is done, and I must remind you, that this is the only day of the week the players get off and much giving under the radar.

Football is family and it was for me on Tuesday as well, Damion & Patricia share the same birthday, family love, community, college loyalty, cooking recipes, ideas and even a toast of healthy spicy tomato juice.  They both also share the desire and gift to give to the children.   Dr Patricia has been at the forefront of helping childhood obesity for close to 20 years.  4207LAC

Damion is also involved aiding with his Youth Fitness and Nutrition Clinic.

Much much respect to the Chargers.   Kimberly Layton, Chargers former Community Relations and currently VP of External Affairs responsible for heading all the community outreach and implementing many aspects throughout the area.  All her doings for the Chargers helped also pave the way throughout the NFL.  And Chase Hartman, Community Relations Manager along with John and Tim whom were also in attendance for the taping.

 

Was a true treat to meet this really special man, Damion Square even though he’s Roll Tide! He even stayed later to sign some helmets and jerseys for the staff.  I also look forward to having him on The Desiree SHOW.

Stay tuned for all the amazing and fun healthy cooking options with Damion and Dr Riba which will drop on October 11, 2017. Following with other holiday options as each one approaches.

The LA Chargers have a vast area they are giving back to, keep your eyes open to see all the wonderfulness that your community is receiving.

When the SD Chargers were trying to stay in San Diego, this aspect specifically, not just loosing an NFL team but all the outside, off the field, community reach in the entire San Diego area.  These special gifts throughout the vicinity impacted so many lives, not just the obvious Turkey, Blood Drives, but each school, football programs, gyms, individuals in need the beautiful hand of the Chargers touched.    I am still saddened for the are with the loss which they may or may not of realized while voting.  But I am happy for the entire Los Angeles and Orange County communities to having these priceless gifts.   I know or assume that the LA Chargers Community Relations have their hands full helping such a huge area!
