Antwan Applewhite born December 31, 1985 in Los Angeles, California is an American football linebacker for the San Diego Chargers of the National Football League. He was signed by the Chargers as an undrafted free agent in 2007. He played college football at San Diego State.

Antwan's Career

The biggest play of his career was a forced fumble on an onside kick during a 2008 mid-December game in Kansas City. A loss would have eliminated the Chargers from the playoff race, but the Bolts recovered the fumble and scored a touchdown to win the game, 22-21.

Off the field, Applewhite has involved himself in a handful of charitable activities, including serving holiday meals provided by the San Diego Food Bank. Applewhite enjoys going to the movies, watching his favorite NBA team, the Los Angeles Lakers, and fishing. Applewhite will look to rebound in 2010 from a hamstring injury that cost him nearly the entire ’09 season. He hurt it during the season-opener in Oakland and tried to come back, but after missing four games, Applewhite was ultimately placed on the “Reserve-Injured” list. A former standout on a couple of under-performing teams at San Diego State, Applewhite applied for early draft status following his junior season in ’06 and all 32 NFL teams passed him over. Opting to stay close to home, he signed with the Chargers as a free agent and landed on the team’s practice squad before moving on to the active roster.
