Philip Rivers is an quarterback for the San Diego Chargers of the National Football League. Rivers was drafted in the first round of the 2004 NFL Draft with the fourth overall pick by the New York Giants, who traded him to the San Diego Chargers for their first overall pick, quarterback Eli Manning. Rivers played college football at North Carolina State University. Rivers' career passer rating of 96.0 is fourth-best all-time among NFL quarterbacks with at least 1,500 passing attempts. Known for his durability, he set a NCAA record with 51 consecutive starts, and is ranked 4th all-time in consecutive starts by a quarterback in NFL history.
After starting Chargers' quarterback Drew Brees went to the New Orleans Saints following the 2005 season, Rivers came off the bench to lead the Chargers to a 14-2 record in his first season as a starter. In 2007, he helped the Chargers win their first playoff game since 1994 after beating the Tennessee Titans in the wildcard round of the 2007 playoffs and eventually leading them to the AFC Championship Game. He has a career total of 18 fourth quarter comebacks, his most recent being on October 12th 2014, when he led the Chargers to a 31-28 win over the Oakland Raiders.
Philip Rivers married his junior high school sweetheart, Tiffany, in 2001. His wife, Tiffany Rivers is a religious convert to the Catholic Church. They have five daughters and two sons, and reside in San Diego, California.
In 2011, he was named one of three finalists for the Walter Payton NFL Man of the Year Award for his work with the Rivers of Hope Foundation, an endeavor he and his wife oversaw from 2010-12 to help abandoned and orphaned children. The Foundation raised more than $1,000,000 for the cause through football camps, a 5K Fun Run and personal contributions from Rivers. The Foundation also supported the San Pasqual Academy, a residential education campus designed specifically for foster teens.
Rivers received an Honorary degree of Doctor of Humane Letters and addressed the Class of 2014 at the 125th Annual Commencement Ceremony of The Catholic University of America on May 17, 2014.
