Default #89 in '80s? (circa 1984)

Can someone help me? I'm wondering who wore #89 back in the 80's. (circa 1984) Was watching Karate Kid and Daniel San had on a chargers jersey with #89 on it in a scene in the movie where he was getting ready for a costume party. Would it be from the time of the movie or another famous #89?

Looked on web for past rosters. But no reference to numbers worn.

Thanks in advance for your help.

Wes Chandler.

In 1982 he averaged 21.1 yards per catch [img]i/expressions/face-icon-small-shocked.gif[/img] and scored 9 TD's. He effectively replaced John Jefferson.

Yes, it was a Chandler jersey.
Although the link to that roster is a 1980 roster, thats when we still had JJ.

I remember one year at the San Diego Supercross, Ricky Johnson and Broc Glover ( motocross riders, lived in Granite Hills) wore #89 Chargers jerseys inthe race...that was cool.

Man, I loved watching Chandler play, that guy was awesome. Remember Reche's one handed grab a few weeks ago? Wes made grabs like that on a regular basis...'twas a thing of beauty with him , Kellen and Charlie.

In the late 70's to early 80's (before Chandler) number 89 was worn by Dwight McDonald.

He was a SDSU alum.

Actually, I remember feeling a certain amount of "resentment" initally in my house against Chandler when he first arrived - My son (then very young, now in his mid 30s), was a REAL JJ and Charlie Joiner fan... It didn't take long, however, for everybody to warm up to Wes - he was a quality receiver and a great guy... He and Charley took time out to sign my son's T-shirt when we met the bus after an away-game down at the stadium... Wonder if he still has that sucker?

One thing I can say about Wes Chandler was that dude had a frightful mug. That grill scared DB's and small children. He could run like the wind and I will never forget the 260 yard reception game he had against the Bengals. I do believe it stands as a Chargers record for a single game receiving yardage by a WR.
