Bio

In his first season with the Chargers, Phillips proved to be a solid addition to the Bolts’ offense. Primarily utilized for his blocking skills, Phillips lined up at multiple spots as a tight end, an H-back and even occasionally as a fullback. He played in 15 games and made five starts, but his season was cut short by a right knee injury suffered early in the Chargers’ Dec. 22 game against Oakland. Phillips only caught four passes last season, but the injury occurred just as he made his fourth. He spent the entire offseason rehabbing and is looking forward to making a spirited return in 2014.

Phillips is a native of Warm Springs, Virginia, a small-town in the middle of the Allegheny Mountains, about 200 miles southwest of Washington D.C. that borders both Virginia and West Virginia. Warm Springs has a population of less than 150 and the town is so small that it doesn’t even have a stoplight. People who live in that part of the country make ends meet by living off the land. Phillips grew up doing the same, hunting and fishing in Warm Springs’ rural environment. He’s hunted since childhood, pursuing everything from deer, turkey, bobcats and even bears. He also enjoys trout fishing in the rivers of Bath County and bass fishing in its lakes.

Despite his rural upbringing, Phillips was a three-sport star at Bath County High School, earning all-state honors in football and baseball, and all-district honors in basketball. An excellent student, he attended the University of Virginia, one of the nation’s top academic institutions, and earned a degree in sociology in less than four years.

Phillips’ wife, Nikki, also attended Virginia where she started for four seasons for the Cavaliers’ soccer team. She was drafted by Chicago in the second round of the 2009 Women’s Professional Soccer League Draft and now plays for FC Kansas City in the National Women’s Soccer League. She also competes for Poland’s National Team.

Phillips continues to extol the grounded roots instilled in him from his Virginia upbringing. His vehicle of choice is a 1999 Chevy Tahoe that he purchased used in college with 90,000 miles on the odometer.

Phillips shared a house in college with several current and former NFL players, including St. Louis Rams defensive end Chris Long, who was the No. 2 overall selection in the 2008 NFL Draft.
