CARSON, Calif. -- Doug Flutie spent some time at training camp tutoring a player who won't be a threat to his job anytime soon.

Maria Sharapova, a 16-year-old Russian tennis player, donned shoulder pads and Flutie's jersey before getting some tips from the Chargers' quarterback.

They passed the ball several times and Sharapova tossed 20-yard spirals with ease.

The duo then switched equipment and Flutie grabbed a racket to volley with Sharapova, who reached the fourth round at Wimbledon last month.

Flutie promised to attend Sharapova's match Thursday against top-seeded Kim Clijsters at the JPMorgan Chase Open, being held adjacent to the Chargers' camp at Home Depot Center.
===========================================

Teenage WTA players seem to be fair game for athletes of all sports, eh? :)
With the Chargers training camponly only a few blocks away, it looks like they will have new diversions from the cheerleaders. :)

Flutie is a short, older quarterback, who became famous from a lucky catch on a game winning pass play in college.

And now he has an apparent prediliction for teenage babes. :)
