Chargers fans, remember Ryan Leaf? Of course you do. Well now you can re-live his most boneheaded moments throught the beauty of cinema.
Leaf retired after four seasons in the NFL. He finished his career with 14 touchdowns and 36 interceptions but was better known for outbursts directed at teammates, coaches, fans and reporters.
Now filmmaker Tim Carr has put together an independent film documenting Leaf's highs and lows. Okay -- lows and lows.
There was a screening of the film "Leaf" Wednesday night at the San Diego Public Library.
The former Chargers quarterback Ryan Leaf resigned as quarterbacks coach at Division II West Texas A&M while Canyon police investigated an allegation of his involvement in a minor drug crime. Athletic director Michael McBroom said in a statement that Leaf resigned because of "personal issues."
The Heisman Trophy finalist who led Washington State to the 1998 Rose Bowl, also coached men's golf coach at West Texas A&M in Canyon, about 20 miles southwest of Amarillo in the Texas Panhandle.
This is Leaf's third season as quarterbacks coach at West Texas A&M, which is 9-1 heading into its final regular season game Saturday. Quarterback Keith Null has completed nearly 68 percent of his passes and has 3,812 passing yards, 36 touchdowns and 14 interceptions. The team's passing offense ranks first in the Lone Star Conference.
