San Diego Chargers quarterback and Alabama native Philip Rivers announced Thursday that he would endorse Rick Santorum in the state's presidential primary, praising the former Pennsylvania senator's record on social issues.
"I am supporting Rick Santorum for President because of his stance on issues that attack vital Christian values our country was founded upon: no abortion, upholding traditional marriage, defending religious freedom, no euthanasia," Rivers said in a statement.
The quarterback went on to pledge to help Santorum as he campaigns through the Deep South.

Alabama native, maybe.....but he made his mark as QB here in NC with the NC State Wolfpack.
His dad was head football coach at the high school JUST up the street in my last neighborhood here in Raleigh (was a beautiful, brand new school). He took them to a state championship within a year or two....then moved on. His replacement was an idiot who couldn’t win a game if the competing team didn’t even bother to show.
Philip Rivers is Catholic and has six kids. He has been seen attending early morning mass on game days.
This genius is one concussion short of a lobotomy.
Go Wolfpack! I am not surprised that Rivers is backing Santorum. Philip Rivers is one class individual. Look up his story and you will understand why he is making this endorsement.
Rivers is obviously suffering from the same disease as Sweater Vest, its called Megalomania.
I understand Drew Brees is endorsing Doctor John, maybe I should start a thread.
Lobotomy? That is so insulting. How could you say such a thing?
As a staunch Catholic promoting Santorum, Phil Rivers is defending his faith, family and the unborn. He is defending the highest values of civilization. He is showing intelligence, wisdom and love for his fellow man.
Because that's what a presidency is about... sigh.
FReepmail Antoninus to be added or removed.
Does Rom2000 stand for Romney 2012?
We need all the votes for Santorum and Newt to cut Romney share to about 20% but no more because we have to deal with all liberal Eastern states such as NY, New Jersey, and so on later, and most have winner-take-all delegates.
Deny Romney Republican nomination as he is pro-gay, pro-abortion, pro federal healthcare mandate.
If the GOP race is not settled and the California GOP primary comes into play, Philip River’s endorsement could be very important in San Diego County. San Diego County is not at all like the Los Angeles or the San Francisco Gay Area. Santorum is closing the gap with Romney in the latest Public Policy Institute of California poll.
>> defending the highest values of civilization... showing intelligence, wisdom and love for his fellow man.
Good endorsement for Rick. But the political destruction of our opponents is not about moral vanity. It’s about the Liberty that will permit morality to thrive. We need to take the Presidency, not only showcase the propriety that exemplifies Santorum’s campaign.
I like Rick, but I’m obviously doubtful about his ability to win the Presidency and manage the Country.
That’s great! Would love to see Rick and Rivers together in San Diego!
