Hillsdale's Petro and Hixson both named GLIAC Players of the Week

Hillsdale College football players Mark Petro and Nick Hixson have been named GLIAC Special Teams and Defensive Player of the Week respectively.

Petro, a senior from Rocky River, OH was 3 for 3 kicking extra points and was 2 for 2 kicking fieldgoals of 45 and 27 yards. This is the second time this season that he has been named the league's top special-teamer.

Chargers defensive back Nick Hixson is the GLIAC's choice for top defensive player this week. Hixson led Hillsdale with 14 tackles in Saturday's 27-24 win over previously #1 ranked Grand Valley State. The sophomore from Remus Chippewa Hills High School in Michigan is second on the team with 47 tackles. Unrelated to this honor, Hixson is emerging as an electric kickoff returner. He returned 5 kicks on Saturday for 135 yards and was inches away from breaking a number of them for scores.
