Charger Seniors Go Out with a Win

Andrew Daugherty has been playing football in the area for nearly a decade

The former Hudson standout became a starter at Hillsdale College. And when he walked off the field for the final time in the Chargers 28–14 win over Wayne State Saturday, it wasn’t easy.

“Obviously it was emotional,” he said. “You spend so many years playing, this is your last game. It’s good to win but at the same time it’s bittersweet.”

Daugherty was one of 18 seniors that played their last game at Muddy Waters Stadium Saturday. Most of the class consists of coach Keith Otterbein’s first recruiting class.

“Those kids came in with us, they were the first guys that we recruited. We took a chance on them and they took a chance on us,” Otterbein said. “I think over the course of their careers they would have hoped for more wins, but we couldn’t have asked for anything more.”

The Chargers finish the year at 5–6. It is the first time that Otterbein — or the senior class — did not finish the season with a 4–7 record. The win also extends the Chargers winning streak to three, giving them tremendous momentum heading into the offseason.

Hillsdale’s seniors went out with a resounding victory that wasn’t as close as the 28–14 score.

The Chargers outgained Wayne State 425–285, using a balanced attack that included 204 yards on the ground and 221 through the air.
