Horizon Prep students rally for Chargers

RANCHO SANTA FE — It was all things blue and gold as students at Horizon Prep gathered on a Friday morning for a pep rally to support the San Diego Chargers.
Former Chargers player Tim Ware and Curt Di Giacomo were on hand to lead the enthusiastic youngsters in the second annual Touchdown Dance-off.
Students squirmed on the ground to the rhythm of the upbeat music, demonstrating plenty of energy for 8:20 a.m.
Both Ware and Di Giacomo have strong Christian beliefs and said they were in sync with the values taught to students at Horizon Prep. “We have to thank the Lord for all he’s done for us,” Ware said. “I wish I could play on Sunday, but I’m 46 years old. I’m too old!”
Unfortunately, all the good cheers and support from Horizon Prep didn’t help the home team. On Jan. 17, the Chargers lost 17-14 to the Jets in a stunning upset.
