HILLSDALE, MI: Hillsdale College Head Football Coach Keith Otterbein was very upbeat following day one of his Chargers' pre-season camp. There weren't many x's and o's today as Otterbein and his staff focused on the administrative duties that accompany the beginning of a season.

"We had 100 players report, and in shape," Otterbein stated. "We are excited to have them back. We did our run testing today and will do some lift-testing tomorrow, but it is quite apparent that our guys really got after it, and work tremendously hard in the off-season."

Offensive line coach Nate Shreffler said, "We are definitely in better shape than we were a year ago, especially the big guys. That should be a huge help in the first couple of weeks.

Due to NCAA regulations requiring an acclimation into the season, pads won't be popping for several days. According to Otterbein, the Chargers can hardly wait. "The kids are excited, fired up, optimistic and really anxious, but it will be a couple of days before we can get into the nitty gritty of football.

The Chargers open the season on August 27 at the University of Indianapolis.
