Glendening is GLIAC Player of the Year - Otter gets Coach of the Year - Four other Chargers make 1st Team All-GLIAC

For the second year in a row, Hillsdale College can boast GLIAC Football Player of the Year. Last year quarterback Troy Weatherhead was league MVP. This year it is running back Joe Glendening who gets that honor.

"Joe the Show" had the most spectacular season ever produced by any Hillsdale back. His 1604 yards and 27 touchdowns knocked hall of famers Scott Schulte and Nate Clark down a peg and now sits 1241 yards away from Schulte's all-time leading rusher mark of 4495. Glendening returns for one more season in 2012.
Hillsdale head coach Keith Otterbein also received quite an honor today as he was named GLIAC Coach of the Year. Facing major rebuilding after losing Weatherhead, receivers Mike Blanchard and Andre Holmes who is on the Dallas Cowboy practice squad, as well as key linemen like center Phil Doerffler, Otterbein led Hillsdale to its first conference title since 1992 and its first outright title since 1988.

Other Chargers were recognized on Wednesday as some of the league's best.

Senior Tackle Reid Meador and junior H-back Cam White received first-team offense honors while senior defensive back Nick Hixson and sophomore Brett Pasche were named to the first-team defense.

Making the second-team for Hillsdale were Hixson as the return specialist and fellow DB senior Joe Vear.

Honorable mention went to David Bakker (Sr./DE), Bren Bergquist (Sr./TE), Steve Embry (So./LB), D.J. Loy (Jr./OL), Anthony Mifsud (Jr./ QB), Devin Moynihan (So./LB)

Full Release.
