Hillsdale Signs WR, LB

As the over-hyping of National Letter of Intent Signing has faded, Hillsdale College head football coach Keith Otterbein and his staff have remained hard at work, trying to finalize this year's recruiting class. Recently signed are two players who bring added speed to the Charger football program.

Aaron Waldie, 5'11, 175, WR, Sylvania (OH) Southview Waldie is a two-time Div. 2 All-Ohio wide receiver who caught 50 passes for 820 yards and 12 touchdowns last season.

"I am very excited to be a part of the great football tradition at Hillsdale," Waldie said recently. "I have heard nothing but great things about the program and the school."

Waldie brings with him soft hands and great speed. He turned heads this summer with a 4.5 (electronic) 40 yard dash time that earned him the "Smokehouse Champion" award as the fastest athlete at the University of Michigan football camp. He also won the camp's coveted "Best Hands Award".

Southview Coach Jim Mayzes recently stated, "Aaron is an exceptional football player. He is a very coach-able, intelligent athlete and a team player with a good positive head on his shoulders and a desire to succeed each and every day. Aaron has a 3.5 gpa, he's a National Honor Society member, a team captain and has been a natural driven leader on the team since he stepped foot on the field 4 years ago. He not only consistently catches the ball but makes something happen after the catch on almost every occasion."

Aaron's father built a website to keep family in Michigan and California up to date on Aaron's Southview accomplishments. It is complete with news articles and game film from each game this season. [website]

Marcellus Wade, 6'1" 205, LB, Farmington High School Wade received recognition from the Detroit News, Detroit Free Press, and Oakland Press as a member of their all area teams.

Charger assistant coach Nate Shreffler called Wade a "big hitter" and noted the linebacker's speed and athleticism as positives he brings to the Charger defense.
