The Chargers have announced the signing of former Crespi High quarterback Babe Laufenberg. The former Washington Redskin was auditioned this week after Dan Fouts suffered a knee injury.
Laufenberg started at quarterback at Crespi in 1976 and '77. He holds the school career passing mark of 2,678 yards on 184 completions. In one game--a 24-14 loss to St. Francis--Laufenberg completed 22 passes for 252 yards. The completions were the the second highest for a single game in Crespi history, while the yards were the fourth highest. He was All-Southern Section and named to the Adidas All-American high school team in 1977.
After attending four colleges--Stanford, Missouri, Pierce and Indiana--he was a sixth-round draft choice of the Redskins in 1983. On the injured reserve list because of a bad shoulder, he did not throw a pass in a game for Washington.
Laufenberg will play behind Mark Herrmann, who inherited the starting spot following Fouts' injury during Sunday's 21-7 loss to Cleveland.
