Petro named GLIAC Special Teams Player of the Week

Hillsdale College Release

September 4, 2007 - A near-record offensive performance by the Hillsdale
College football team led to an honor for a special teams player Tuesday

Sophomore placekicker Mark Petro was named the GLIAC Special Teams
Player of the Week. It marks the first time a Charger has received the
honor since punter Matt Vanover got the honor on Oct. 23, 2005.

Petro was 8-for-8 on extra-point attempts and hit his only field goal
attempt in Saturday's 59-3 rout of Gannon University. Petro's eight
extra-points made was not only a career-high, but the second-most in one
game in school history. Former All-American Chester Marcol set the
record with nine back on Sept. 18, 1970.

Petro's 11 points were the most by any kicker in the first full week of
GLIAC football play.

In 2006, the Chargers netted just one GLIAC Player of the Week honor,
that going to Jared Kell on the defensive side of the ball after the
team's game on Oct. 7.

Petro and the Chargers will seek their first 2-0 start since 1999 on
Saturday when they travel to Northern Michigan University for a game
against the Wildcats.
