I have a special fondness for the Charger Girls because I photographed them every year I was a season ticket holder for the San Diego Chargers, from 1999 to 2016. Last year, I was able to cover their 2017 Charger Girl auditions at UCLA’s Pauley Pavilion and let me tell you, that was an amazing event to cover. The Charger Girls regularly attract several hundred girls to their auditions and last year was no different. It was a very long day as you can imagine with the large number of participants and simply getting through two rounds of judging took in excess of 6 hours.
Yes, the Charger Girls are special…very special indeed.
