    Offensive tackle Ron Mix (74) of the San Diego Chargers blocks Chiefs defensive lineman Jerry Mays (75) in a 27 to 17 loss to the Kansas City Chiefs on December 18, 1966 at San Diego Stadium in San Diego, California.

    The Chargers' Ron Mix (1960 - 1969) didn't even like football when he started playing. He promised himself in high school he would stop playing. Needless to say he broke that promise. Mix was voted the Chargers' Most Valuable player in 1962, voted All-AFL tackle eight years in a row and elected to the NFL Pro Hall of Fame in 1979. Nicknamed the "Intellectual Assassin", Mix earned a law degree while playing pro football.


    In the 10 years, Mix played for the Chargers he only had two holding penalties. He now owns a law practice in Mission Valley.
