    I remember watching Hezekiah with the Chargers. What a great name! Looking at the photo, its interesting that many photos of players were taken during pregame warm-ups. I was probably seated in the shade in the cheap seats of the north end zone of Balboa Stadium. Thanks for letting us know about Hezekiah.
