From 1960 to 1972, Ron Mix was a 10-time All-League and All-Pro offensive lineman with the American Football League San Diego and Los Angeles Chargers and Oakland Raiders.

A University of Southern California All-America in 1959, he was the first draft choice of both the National Football League’s Baltimore Colts and AFL vs. Boston Patriots. The Patriots traded their rights to Mix to the Los Angeles Chargers in 1960, and one year later the
franchise moved to San Diego, where he starred at both offensive tackle and offensive guard. He retired in 1970, butreturned to play two seasons with the Oakland Raiders.

Mix played in seven All-Star games, and when he completed his active career, the Chargers retired his jersey: number 74.

The Chargers-Raiders star was unanimously named to the All-Time
AFL Team by the Pro Football Hall of Fame. In 1979, Mix became the second AFL player and sixth offensive lineman, all-time, to be elected to the Pro Football Hall of Fame.
