Easton Stick: I’m Used To Winning

Los Angeles Chargers quarterback Easton Stick is in line to make his first NFL start against the Raiders on Thursday.

Easton Stick will likely start the final four games of the season due to Justin Herbert’s fractured finger.

The Chargers drafted Easton Stick in the fifth round of the 2019 NFL Draft. Initially he was seen as a backup to Philip Rivers. However, the drafting of Herbert next year ended his starting prospects.

Stick was still in college when he last started a football game, for the North Dakota State Bison. His 49-3 record for the Bison is impressive, but his NFL record is bare bones.

Before stepping in for Herbert on Sunday, Stick had two snaps and one attempted pass in the NFL. Coming on against the Broncos, he finished with 13-of-24 passing for 179 yards, no interceptions and no touchdown passes.

“Obviously, this isn’t how I envisioned it,” Stick said.

“When they selected me five years ago, this is what you want as a kid — an opportunity to go play. I’m excited for that.

“Ultimately, it’s football,” Stick added. “Look, I understand North Dakota State is not the National Football League, but I’m used to winning. I only know one way. This is a production business, and I understand that.”

“I’m just going to go out there and play,” Stick said. “There’s going to be good, and there’s going to be bad. … That’s just part of it. It’s football. It’s not perfect. I’m just going to go out there and do my best.”
