Section 9 Football Insider
It seems fitting that quarterback Collin Hauschild would end up playing at Division III Earlham College in Richmond, Indiana after all of the traveling he has done in the past year.
Hauschild’s trek to 19 camps, clinics and showcases during a five-month period last year began in Toledo, Ohio and ended with a weekend at Villanova, Temple and Colgate. When the Hauschild tour was over, he and his mother, Dawn, logged approximately 8,300 miles on the road.
So Hauschild can certainly handle the ride to Earlham, which is located on the border of Ohio.
“It’s definitely a fit with all of the travel I did,” said Hauschild, who put up 2,103 all-purpose yards and 23 touchdowns for Roscoe/Livingston Manor/Downsville/Sullivan West. Hauschild lives in Jeffersonville which is part of the Sullivan West school district. “I’m extremely excited to play in college for four more years. Football is my passion and I’m excited about my future at Earlham.”
Hauschild said he had never heard of Earlham when the private liberal arts college with only 1,200 students contacted him last summer. However, he kept in touch with Earlham’s coaching staff and was sold on the school when he visited. Hauschild said that Lawrence College, Western New England College and St. John Fisher also expressed interest in him.
Hauschild also played defensive back for Roscoe/LM/D/SW and was one of the most well-liked players in Section 9. He was inducted into the National Honor Society in 2016 and missed one day during his entire school career (K-12) due to shoulder surgery.”
“I thought Collin was the complete package on and off the field,” Burke Catholic coach Aaron Hasbrouck said. “He was a gentleman and I think he could compete at any level.”
