The New York Times had this intriguing front-page story Sunday about an old settlement named Tomlinson Hill in Texas. And yes, it does have a connection to a certain MVP running back, who plays for the Chargers.

Here’s how it starts:

TOMLINSON HILL, Tex. — One hundred and fifty years ago, a white farmer named James K. Tomlinson rode through central Texas in a covered wagon and settled 15 acres of pasture land.

Today, the legacy of that land is carried on by a 27-year-old pro football player in San Diego whose ancestors were Tomlinson’s slaves.
