The man who said he was and always will be a "San Diego" Charger, LaDainian Tomlinson, will officially become part of the Pro Football Hall of Fame this week.
Tomlinson is part of the 2017 class and will be inducted during his first year of eligibility.
He's already a member of the San Diego Chargers Hall of Fame. His jersey number 21 has been retired.
L.T. spent nine of his 11 seasons with the Chargers.
He was drafted 5th overall by the Bolts in the 2001 NFL Draft. By the time he was let go after the 2009 season, he owned every major rushing and touchdowns record in franchise history.
He owns NFL records for most touchdowns in a single season (31), most rushing touchdowns in a season (28) and most points in a season (186, all set in his 2006 MVP year). He also has more multiple-rushing touchdown games (50), most consecutive games with a rushing touchdown (14), most seasons with at least 10 rushing touchdowns (9), and he was the fastest player ever to gain 15,000 yards from scrimmage, doing it in just 121 NFL games.
And those are just a few of his NFL records.
Tomlinson was also a fan favorite. He was the San Diego football version of Tony Gwynn, understanding what he meant to the community he did not grow up in but came to call his home.
NBC 7's Derek Togerson will be in Canton, Ohio for this week's induction ceremony.
The full 2017 Pro Football Hall of Fame class looks like this:
