Hillsdale College football team stuns Grand Valley State
October 10, 2009, 11:44PMHILLSDALE — Troy Weatherhead is a believer, and he's not alone.
Weatherhead, the senior quarterback for the Hillsdale College football team, engineered a 67-yard scoring drive in the final 5 minutes that resulted in a Billy Kanitz 1-yard scoring run with 36 seconds to play to give the Chargers a 27-24 victory Saturday over NCAA Division II top-ranked Grand Valley State.
The win before a big homecoming crowd at Muddy Waters Stadium was not sealed until Grand Valley State kicker Justin Trumble pushed a 49-yard field goal attempt just wide right as time ran out.
"We talked about it all week," Weatherhead said. "We believed we could win. Every break we had this week, we said, ‘Believe.'
"It's a great feeling right now. I think we made everyone believe."
