Sophomore kicker Steven Mette is getting some pre-season hype as he has been named to the watch list for the Fred Mitchell award. The Mitchell Award is given to a kicker in FCS, DII, DIII, NAIA, or Junior College who excels on the field and off.

Last year the Rockford, Michigan native who volunteers at a Hillsdale elementary school and helped with Jared Veldheer's camp this summer to raise heart health awareness averaged 57 yards on kickoffs and made all 37 of his extra points in his first season.

Between 2009 and 2012, Hillsdale College never finished worse than second in its division. That includes the 2011 season when the Chargers won the GLIAC title for the first time since 1988. Last season, Hillsdale took a step back, finishing in the middle of the pack with a 5-6 record.
