BIG RAPIDS, Mich. — 3,800 total yards. 50 total touchdowns. The leader of Ferris State’s run to a Great Lakes Intercollegiate Athletic Conference title and the first 11-0 regular season in school history.

Safe to say Jason Vander Laan has earned Division II football’s highest honor.

The junior quarterback from Frankfort, Illinois was named the 2014 recipient of the Harlon Hill Trophy on Friday — DII’s version of the Heisman Trophy.

Vander Laan is the first player in Ferris State history to win the honor.

It’s the icing on the cake of a laundry list of awards for Vander Laan this season. He has been named Daktronics National Player of the Year, GLIAC Player of the Year, and an AP Little All-American.
