#SDLive host Mike Pomeranz chats one-on-one with Fowler on-site at the 69th Annual Salute to the Champions event hosted by the San Diego Hall of Champions. Fowler, Executive Committee Chair for the Hall of Champions, discusses the rich history of the event, the youth programs it benefits and the 2015 Breitbard Hall of Fame class. He also comments on the upcoming Padres season, shares his thoughts on the James Shields trade and speaks to A.J. Preller’s mentality.

Honored as a 2015 Star of the Year, Keflezighi shares his journey from refugee to world class runner. He chats with Pomeranz about his arrival to America and how he acquired his passion for running. In addition, Keflezighi explains the importance of education and talks about how he is giving back to the local community.

2015 Breitbard Hall of Fame inductee, LaDainian Tomlinson speaks to Pomeranz about the honor of being recognized during Salute to the Champions and reminisces about his playing days with the San Diego Chargers. He chats about being a community guy and shares his thoughts on the current stadium issue. He talks about the recent news of a potential shared stadium with the Raiders and reflects on how it was as a Jets player to share a stadium with another team. Tomlinson speaks to his conversations with Mayor Kevin Faulconer and gives his thoughts on how the City of San Diego and the community can work together to keep the Chargers in San Diego.

The San Diego Hall of Champions welcomed three new athletes into the Breitbard Hall of Fame. The local Hall of Fame honors athletes who have excelled athletically in San Diego or who are native San Diegans and have achieved athletic fame elsewhere. In addition to Tomlinson, the 2015 class included former MLB first baseman and Oceanside native Chris Chambliss and former San Diego State basketball star and 15-year MLB veteran Tony Clark.
