Chargers Mourn Loss of Doug “Moosie” Wilkerson

Chargers Mourn Loss of Doug “Moosie” Wilkerson

Former Chargers guard, Doug “Moosie” Wilkerson, passed away Sunday at the age of 73.

“Moosie was one-of-a-kind,” said Chargers Owner and Chairman of the Board Dean Spanos. “A member of our Chargers Hall of Fame, 40th and 50th anniversary teams, the Black College Football Hall of Fame and a three-time All Pro, to say he was vital to the success of our Air Coryell era teams would be an understatement. Yet for everything he accomplished on the field, his regular visits to our facility during his retirement years are probably what everyone in our Chargers family will remember most.

He was a great father, loved his daughters dearly and worshipped them. He was the perfect image of what you expect the captain of a football team to be. He was that guy. I love him dearly. God bless him and may he rest in peace forever.”

San Diegan & ex-Charger Pete Shaw enjoying close ties to Northwestern

For a couple of decades, Northwestern alumnus Pete Shaw could fairly be termed as an interested bystander of the Wildcats’ football program.

A standout defensive back at Northwestern whose NFL career included five seasons (1977-81) with the San Diego Chargers, Shaw saw games on TV when he could and attended the 1996 Rose Bowl — a 41-32 loss to USC in the Wildcats’ first appearance in the game since 1949.

There was just not a lot to be excited about, with Northwestern posing as fodder for the Big Ten’s big guns.

Then came the phone call in 2012 while Shaw, who lives in North County’s San Elijo Hills, was playing a round of golf at Aviara. He didn’t recognize the number, but answered it anyway.
