Oct. 8, 2006 - TThe Hillsdale College football team delivered one of its best defensive performances of the season Saturday afternoon, and a player from that unit earned a conference honor as a result.

Junior safety Jared Kell (Wyandotte, Mich.) was named the GLIAC Defensive Player of the Week Sunday evening. Kell was a leader of a superior defensive effort in Hillsdale’s 14-13 Homecoming win over the University of Indianapolis at Muddy Waters Stadium.

Kell intercepted two passes and recovered two fumbles for the victorious Chargers. Three of those four turnovers came in the game’s final eight minutes. Kell intercepted an Indy pass at the Hillsdale 2-yard-line with 5:58 left in the fourth quarter. That interception led to the Chargers’ game-winning, 98-yard drive that pushed the team into the lead.

Kell later intercepted a pass with 52 seconds left that killed Indianapolis’ final drive of the ballgame. Kell scooped up a fumble in the second quarter, that also led to a touchdown drive by Hillsdale. Kell’s other fumble recovery came at the 8:11 mark of the fourth quarter. Kell added five solo tackles and six total tackles to his superb game. The Charger defense held the Greyhounds to 21 points below their conference-leading scoring average.

Kell currently leads Hillsdale with four interceptions on the season and four fumble recoveries. The Chargers are now 3-3 on the season and will play at Wayne State University Saturday at 12:10 p.m."
