San Diego Chargers Linebacker Shaun Phillips presented a $7,000 check to the San Diego chapter of After-School All-Stars to wrap up another great season with “SP’s All-Star Sack Attack” program. The check was presented Thursday, February 25 at a mixer hosted by Sports Illustrated.
Three years ago, Shaun pledged to donate $1,000 to After-School All-Stars for every sack he recorded in the National Football League (NFL) season. With seven sacks in the 2009 season, Shaun will personally donate $7,000 to the After-School All-Stars at the SI event. In addition, three local companies have pledged to match his donation this year, bringing the total 2009 donation of “SP’s All-Star Sack Attack” program to $28,000..
