Senior football captain and outside linebacker Butch Herzog completely ruptured the plantar fascia in his left foot during a football practice in September.
The injury could have ended his season, but thanks to a cutting-edge treatment, Herzog was back in only six weeks, playing in the Chargers’ week nine home victory.
“It was really a simple decision. It allowed me to get back to my team quicker,” Herzog said. “It worked. I’m back. Things are good. I’m glad I can rejoin the team.”
Herzog started feeling pain in his left foot during Hillsdale’s week two game at Lake Erie College, but continued to play through it, ultimately being on the field for 71 plays.
