HDN: One Snap at a Time

It may take a win and a prayer for Hillsdale College to make the playoffs, but its quarterback has faith to weather the storm: Faith in his team, faith in the system and a faith in God.

So when Mark Nicolet takes that first snap Saturday against Saginaw Valley State University, he won’t be caught up in the moment, thinking what the game means or what’s coming up.

He will be concentrating on making the play.

“I take it one snap at a time,” Nicolet said in an interview Wednesday night.

These are heady times for the Chargers senior. He is among the top quarterbacks in the nation in Division 2, with several single–season records on his resume.

His arm and leadership have brought Hillsdale College to its first winning season since 1999 and on the verge of the school’s first playoff spot since 1985. He is the star of the team and the rage across campus and among the Charger faithful.
