    When Chatfield’s Kian “Alex” Malone was 12 years old, a serious heart condition almost took his life. Now, five years later, he’s a premier multisport athlete with the Chargers.

    “I decided that sports meant a lot to me and that no matter what, I was going to do what I could to keep playing,” Malone said. “Football has always been a passion of mine since I was 9 years old, and I started track because my mom would always tell me (when I was younger) how much fun she had running track.”
