Down on the stage, facing perhaps 15,000 fans, NFL and civic celebrities recalled Junior Seau.

Up across Qualcomm Stadium, facing the setting sun, Alex Dayton of Chula Vista was alone but for two strangers who saw him in the highest row of seats, and came to join him.

“My first Chargers game, my dad brought me here when I was this high,” Dayton said. “It was up here. That was the first time I saw Seau play.”
