On Thursday the San Diego Chargers announced they had signed center Max Tuerk (pronounced Turk) to a four-year contract. He was the team’s third round pick, # 66 overall.
Turk went to the University of Southern California and started for the Trojans for three season. He is a versatile player who started at all the offensive line positions, which will make him a valuable asset for the Chargers. Last season they were saddled with injuries to the line. A player of Tuerk’s talent and versatility can help the team when they need to plug a whole in the offensive line. He is 6’5” and weighs 298 lbs.
He is the seventh Chargers pick of the 2016 draft to be signed, leaving just one draftee unsigned: their first pick Joey Bosa.

We are not the typical news website – nor do we wish to be. We will be offering more than news and blogs, but an opportunity for fiction writers, poets, comedians and musicians to showcase their talent and skills. Much like when the Beatles formed Apple Corps Ltd, they opened the door to all kinds of inspiring talent that never really got a shot. From that came the likes of James Taylor and others. We hope by providing a similar approach we can shine the light on some tremendous undiscovered talent and at the same time offer some familiar voices who live in Los Angeles and beyond.
