By Theresa Villano And the crowd went wild as the San Diego Chargers announced that every student from Marshall Elementary School would receive a bike. “It means a lot,” said wide receiver Seyi Ajirotutu. ”[One of the recipients] said her brakes were broken. For her to get a new bike, it just puts a smile on my face. Glad we could be here to do something good.” The Chargers made a visit to a local elementary school to originally give away only five bikes to Marshall’s essay contest winners. Each player stood in front of the crowd to read the winners essay on how to make the world a better place. The players then called the students up to receive their  new bicycle. But shortly after Keenan Allen, potential offensive rookie of the year, walked in, the curtains were pulled back to reveal shiny red and blue bikes for all students in attendance. After the cheering died down, Theresa Villano of Pro Player Insiders, caught up with two 2013 season game changers, Ajirotutu (Week 12 he caught 26 yard TD pass from Rivers to beat Kansas) and LB Thomas Keiser (Week 15 intercepted Manning in the 4th to beat the Broncos). Both players reflect on what it means for children to own a bicycle, when they received their first bike and on the Bolts season.
