SAN DIEGO (AP) -- Junior Seau was many things to many people.
He was one of the most ferocious linebackers of all time, the fist-pumping, emotional leader of his hometown San Diego Chargers for 13 seasons. He was a beach rat, living the Southern California lifestyle to the fullest. He always had a big smile and called everybody "Buddy."
Seau will be inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame on Saturday, three years after he took his life in his oceanfront home at age 43.
