The Fortress on Murphy Canyon Road - this is the Chargers' training facility, since 1997. Located one mile north of the Murph, this is where the battle plans are prepared and the plays are perfected. The Fortress is a state-of-the-art facility, complete with two full-size grass fields and one artificial turf field. This place has everything, including rooms for team meetings by position groups, weight room, training room, equipment room, video production facilities, locker room, office space for coaches/management and a conference room. The Chargers also have complete sets of NFL team jerseys, with the numbers of key opposing players, for use by the scout team during practices.

The Fortress is used year-round. Off-season training and mini-camps are held here. Prior to 1997, the Chargers' training facilities were located at the Murph. Training camp is held at the University of California, San Diego.

The Chargers' championship trophies are on display at the Fortress, including the 1963 AFL trophy and 1994 AFC Lamar Hunt trophy. There is also a 1996 American Bowl trophy for a preseason win over the Steelers in Tokyo, Japan. But there is still plenty of room for many Vince Lombardi Super Bowl trophies - some day!

Everything at the Fortress is impressive, but its treasure are the pictures that adorn the hallways. This is the equivalent of a pictorial Charger hall of fame. All of the Charger greats, past and present, are suspended here at their best in a never ending game against every NFL opponent. You can see and feel the passion of every Charger generation. Coach Gillman is here with his players. Alworth is making catches. Fouts is directing passes. JJ is making graceful finger-tip catches. Gary Anderson is airborne for a touchdown. Boss Ross is commanding the sideline. Seau is being Seau. They are all still here - on grass, on turf, at home, away, in sunshine, in rain and in snow!

This hall of fame is a Charger fan's dream world, and Bolt Pride is part of it. Yes, Alvarez, MagWell and Valdivia are enshrined here in the Chargers' Power Corps. There are only a few classic pictures of Charger fans at the Fortress, and Bolt Pride is honored to be a part of this ultimate Charger party!

Sincere thanks to Rex Lilly of the San Diego Chargers for these special memories.
