What a difference a couple of weeks make! After an aenemic start at Indianapolis and a blown lead at Findlay, the fortunes have swung the Chargers’ way over the past two weeks. After writing about lost games and questioning administrative moves it sure is a lot more fun to write about positive things happening with a bunch of guys I know have worked tremendously hard for this season!
It is also fun to read and hear about the way Hillsdale fans have supported the team, despite the slow start. Although I wasn’t able to attend the festivities, everything I have heard about the homecoming bonfire and game support has been great. The student section was packed against Ferris and really gave the team the emotional lift it needed to completely dominate the Bulldogs. I have to think some of that had to have carried over last week as Hillsdale pasted Gannon for its first road in 2 years. Great job!
But, I seem to recall saluting the fans early last season after a great showing in the opener against Indianapolis only to see numbers in the endzone dwindle as the season progressed. As excitement on the field waned last year, so did the excitement from the student section. Your Chargers need you more this week than you can imagine. One of the top teams in the country come to town and the emotional lift that helped pound Ferris, could be the difference maker. Sure, Saginaw Valley is a great team but they aren’t invincible. Show the Chargers you believe in them and propel them to one of the great victories in recent Hillsdale memory.
