WILLIAMSBURG, Va.— Former William & Mary All-America offensive lineman Andrew Trainer signed a free agent contract with the Los Angeles Chargers on Saturday evening

Murray joins an impressive list of former Tribe standouts who are currently on NFL rosters – DeVonte Dedmon (Miami Dolphins), DeAndre Houston-Carson (Chicago Bears), Bill Murray (New England Patriots) and Luke Rhodes (Indianapolis Colts). 

A three-year starter at left tackle, Trainer earned All-America honors by Phil Steele following a tremendously productive senior season.  

The two-time All-Colonial Athletic Association standout garnered first-team all-conference honors last fall after helping W&M lead the CAA and rank 16th nationally with 205.5 rushing yards per game at the conclusion of the regular season. Additionally, W&M’s 19 rushing touchdowns tied for the league’s top total, while it averaged 5.0 yards per carry – nearly matching the program’s single-season record (5.1) set in 1990.  

The offensive line was equally as effective in pass protection, as it ranked tied for eighth nationally in fewest sacks allowed per game (1.0) and 10th in fewest sacks allowed (11).
