Tuesday, June 08, 2010 Weatherhead, Holmes earn preseason honorable mention All-American accolades

Hillsdale College Press Release

June 8, 2010 - Hillsdale College senior football players Troy Weatherhead and Andre Holmes have already seen some of their success from 2009 carry over into 2010.

The two players were tabbed as 2010 preseason honorable mention All-Americans by the Consensus Draft Services late Monday night.

Weatherhead and Holmes are two key returning players on offense that will help lead the Chargers into the upcoming season, where they hope to follow up on the smashing success of 2009. Last year, Hillsdale had its finest season since entering Division II play in 1992, finishing with a 10-3 record and advancing to the second round of the NCAA Division II playoffs.

Both Weatherhead and Holmes are entering their third season as starters for Hillsdale at their respective positions. Weatherhead, a quarterback, set several single-game and single-season records last year, and stands just 732 yards away from becoming the school's all-time leading passing yards leader. He is a co-captain of the 2010 team, along with senior Phil Doerfler and junior Nick Hixson.

Holmes is an explosive and speedy wide receiver, who had 77 catches for 1,076 yards in 2009. He led the GLIAC in receiving yards and ranked second in total receptions last year.

Before the 2009 season, Jared Veldheer and Drew Berube were also named preseason All-Americans by CDS, and each went on to earn All-American status following that season.
