Hillsdale College Release
September 18, 2010 - It has been more than four years since the Hillsdale College football team has lost back-to-back games. Bouncing back from last week’s gut-wrenching loss at top-ranked Grand Valley State, the Chargers showed the kind of heart and character they’ve become known for in getting back into the win column Saturday night.
Hillsdale got spectacular offensive games from its primary weapons in defeating Ashland University 27-17 at Ashland’s Jack Miller Stadium. The Chargers are now 2-1 overall and 1-1 in the GLIAC, and return home next week to play Lake Erie College.
Offensive balance has been a key part to the team’s success in recent seasons, and the main cog in that offense wrote his name into the record book Saturday night. Senior QB Troy Weatherhead had another terrific game, going 21-for-25 for 250 yards and two touchdown passes. Weatherhead’s 250 passing yards make him Hillsdale College’s all-time leader in career passing yards, surpassing the record held by Bill Skelton. Weatherhead now has 7,100 passing yards for his career, eclipsing the record Skelton set following the 2003 season.
