Remembering Former Charger Brad Nash

On July 27, 2010, 1991 Hillsdale College grad and former football player Brad Nash lost his 15 year fight with cancer.

Brad was a senior when I was a freshman but I will always remember his hard-nose attitude on the field and huge heart off of it. The Charger family has definitely lost a great member.

Thoughts and prayers go out to Brad's family and all of his friends.

Chargerbluespace Lives

Earlier this Spring, announced that it was discontinuing it's free network services and that all networks would be shutdown unless a subscription plan was purchased.

After some searching, I decided was well worth the small fee charged in order to keep the thousands of Charger football pictures posted by you the fans up for all to see, with lots of room to post more.

Hillsdale football fans are number one in the GLIAC and D2!

Future Hillsdale Charger takes Defensive Best Honors in Texas All Star Football Showcase

Way back on signing day in February, we Hillsdale College Football fans knew we had something special in Frisco, TX linebacker Jake Weddle.

Any player who earns All-State 4A honors among some of America's best high school football players automatically garners attention for that achievement. With lots of spots wide open in the Hillsdale linebacking corps, the idea of Weddle playing right away automatically became a possibility.

On Tuesday night at the Alamodome in San Antonio, Weddle gave Charger fans an even brighter glimpse into his potential. The 6' 2", 220 in-coming freshman was named Defensive Most Valuable Player in the 78th Annual Texas High School Football Coaches Association All-Star game.

It didn't take Weddle long to make a big play for the North, picking off University of New Mexico bound and 3A offensive player of the the year Stump Godfrey at the ten and returning it inside the 3. This set up the first points of the game a play later.

On the night, Weddle recorded 5.5 tackles and helped lead the North's two successful early goalline stands and an additional stop on 4th down.

The South would eventually prevail with a 36-23 win, but Jake Weddle's early heroics would send that MVP trophy back to Frisco with him.

If Jake Weddle can stand out like this amongst some of the biggest recruits in the country, adjusting to NCAA Division II football should not take him too long.
