Chargers' connections to Summit High run beyond kicker Michael Badgley

Kickers don't often end up in the spotlight. But considering how long it took the Los Angeles Chargers to find a good one, Michael Badgley has become an instant hero after just 11 NFL games.

The 23-year-old kicker has looked plenty comfortable with the Chargers, nailing 20-of-22 field goals - including a 5-for-5 effort in last week's playoff win over the Ravens in Baltimore.

Turns out, Badgley should feels right at home. After all, he's known two of his new coaches since his days at Summit High School.
