Two brothers with Lindsay ties opened the National Football League season on Sunday with wins. And a third brother may be on his way to the NFL.
David Quessenberry and the Tennessee Titans opened the season with a 43-13 win over the Cleveland Browns while Scott Quessenberry and the Los Angeles Chargers opened with a 30-24 win over the Indianapolis Colts. Paul Quessenberry will look to make it in the NFL after finishing his commitment to the U.S. Navy.
The three are the grandsons of Darrell Quessenberry, who played football at Lindsay High from 1948-1950. Their great-uncle, John Quessenberry, played at Lindsay in 1942-1943 and was drafted his senior year during World War II. Their great uncles and identical twins Arel and Carl Quessenberry played at Lindsay in 1952-1953.
David, Scott and Paul all played high school in the San Diego area. David is a backup right tackle for the Titans. He played football at San Jose State and was drafted by the Houston Texans.
He eventually suffered a broken foot and then developed non-hodgkins lymphoma and received three years of treatment. He was eventually traded to the Titans.
Scott played at UCLA and was drafted by the Chargers in 2018. He is a backup guard and center with the Chargers.
Paul is a defensive end and played football for the U.S. Naval Academy. The three brothers' father also attended the U.S. Naval Academy and is a pilot for Delta while their monther is a flight attendant.
Paul is about to finish his commitment to the Navy and plans to try out for the NFL.
