Glendening, the 2011 GLIAC Player of the Year, led Hillsdale to the GLIAC championship with a record-breaking season on the ground. He establishedsingle-season school-records in three major categories: carries (325), rushing yards (1,604) and touchdowns (27). He broke his own carries record, set last year, and the school’s rushing yardage record that had stood for 19 years. But the oldest record Hillsdale College had on its record books – in any sport – was shattered by Glendening with his 27 rushing touchdowns. The old record was 24, set by Nate Clark back in 1955.
