Philip Rivers Is San Diego's Modern Day Mr. Football (Videos)

Philip Rivers 7 kids and Santaluz homeSan Diego Chargers QB Philip Rivers has put together quite an NFL résumé, since arriving in San Diego, after being selected with the fourth overall pick in the 2004 NFL Draft. As he enters his 11th professional season, the NC State alum's list of accomplishments includes five Pro Bowls,  four AFC West titles as a starter (five overall playoff appearances), as well as the Chargers franchise records for most consecutive games started at QB (128 and counting) and single season TD passes (34 in 2008). Rivers' 221 career TD throws places him 25th all-time in NFL history. 

After throwing for 3,606 yards in 2012, Rivers came back with a vengeance in 2013, earning NFL Comeback Player of the Year honors, amid passing for 4,478 yards, 32 TD's and 11 INT's, with a 70 percent completion percentage. The now 32-year-old's rate of passes completed places him 7th on the all-time list.

Away from the gridiron, the married father of seven has very much put down his roots in Southern California, calling north San Diego County's Santaluz community home. The luxurious, gated community sits 18 miles north of Chargers Park (team practice facility) and 20 miles north of Qualcomm Stadium (SD's home stadium).

With Rivers getting set to begin the 2013 season, below are a series of original videos, chronicling the Alabama native's work at Monday's training camp session.
