San Diego Chargers

A graduate of the University of Southern California, Mix was an original Los Angeles Charger in 1960. Because he had a law degree, Mix was nicknamed "The Intellectual Assassin" for his physical play. Mix was called for a mere 2 holding penalties in 10 years. He was a factor in the Chargers' early domination of the AFL's Western Division, and in San Diego helped them win an American Football League Championship in 1963, when they defeated the Boston Patriots. He was elected to the AFL All-Star team for eight straight years, is a member of the All-time All-AFL Team, and is one of only twenty men who played the entire ten years of the AFL. He is a member of the pro football hall of fame and the American Football League Hall of Fame.
