Roadrunners sign Bruins basketball standout

“I think I have to work on my jumper and dribbling more and my passing,” Hill said. “It will be hard, but I am ready to work hard and I should be ready for it when the time comes for us to take the court.”

On the football field, Hill was equal parts running back and wide receiver, and he also moonlighted as a punter when an injury to starter Miguel Villa necessitated it this year. Hill led the area in receptions this season, easily outdistancing the competition with 56 catches for 831 yards and 10 touchdowns. On the ground, he had 28 carries for 116 yards and a pair of touchdowns.

He said he had a football scholarship offer from Tusculum (Tenn.) College, but his heart was set on the court rather than the grass.

“Basketball has always been my favorite,” Hill said. “Football was a lot of fun, but basketball is where I have always felt more at home.”
