Bio

A former seventh-round pick of the Dallas Cowboys, the multi-talented Lissemore joined the Chargers via trade last September. And even though he got a late start with the Bolts, Lissemore played in 15 games; he scored his first NFL touchdown on his first interception, and he finished the year third among the team’s defensive linemen in tackles.

A native of Dumont, New Jersey, Lissemore grew up a fan of the New York Giants. Lawrence Taylor was his favorite player and Lissemore wore Taylor’s No. 56 through junior high and high school. A state medalist as a 215-pound wrestler, Lissemore also was one of the area’s top throwers and sprinters, and he played saxophone in the school band. Lissemore could have attended college on a wrestling scholarship, but he decided instead to pursue his dream of playing in the NFL and attended William & Mary.

Lissemore still maintains close ties to his hometown. For the last several years, he’s returned home to host a free football camp for kids 6-and-older in Dumont. A number of athletes and coaches volunteer their time, including former Indianapolis Colts and Giants’ safety David Caldwell, who played with Lissemore at William & Mary. Another of Lissemore’s teammates at William & Mary was Jake Phillips, the brother of Chargers’ tight end, John Phillips.

Lissemore’s hobbies include boating and fishing. This offseason, he and one of his best friends, Russell Cotter, took a fishing trip to Cattle Lake in Uncertain, Texas, to celebrate Cotter’s return home from Afghanistan. The two grew up together and Cotter serves in the Army as an EOD Officer.

There is a long history of military and civil service in the Lissemore family. Both of his grandfathers served in the Army and fought in World War II. His maternal grandfather, David Evans, fought in France, while his paternal grandfather (Raymond Lissemore), who also served in the Korean War, fought in the Pacific theater. Lissemore coincidentally was born on Sept. 11 and his dad, William Lissemore, a telecommunications specialist, happened to be working in Manhattan on the day of the 9-11 terrorist attacks in 2001. Inspired, like many Americans were after that fateful day, the elder Lissemore offered his services to help the military set up their telecommunications at “Ground Zero,” and he later became a volunteer fireman with the Dumont Fire Department.

Besides serving his country, Lissemore’s grandfather on his mother’s side played semi-pro basketball in Pennsylvania.
