Hill signed to Georgia State in 2009 as part of the Panthers’ inaugural recruiting class. Hill played in every game off the bench in 2010, but began starting in the last five games of the 2011 season. Hill is the leading rusher in Georgia State’s history with 1,025 yards.
With it being the summer time, Hill said he is working to prepare for an upcoming game at the end of August.
“The summer is going good. I’ve been lifting weights, looking at film just getting ready for South Carolina State on Aug. 30,” Hill said.
As he anticipates the upcoming season, Hill also reflected on the past season for his team and himself.
“This past season was all right we could’ve done better. I’m always hard on myself but overall I say I did pretty good. I set some goals for myself and I got them,” Hill said.
This past year, the GSU Panthers added another quarterback to the team but Hill said he’s not in fear of losing his spot.
“You can always have more talent to build depth just in case I get hurt,” he said.
In June 2011 Hill was arrested and charged with forcible entry in connection with a burglary in which Hill and another GSU student allegedly entered a student’s room through the window and stole a laptop. The laptop was later returned and the Fulton County district attorney’s office reportedly did not pursue charges.
“The arrest made me stronger. It opened my eyes to life a little bit more,” explained Hill.
Hill has done well in his academics, also, holding down a 3.1 grade point average and making the Athletic Director’s Honor Roll for spring 2012. He is currently majoring in sociology and minoring in communications with several different career plans, including being a college football coach.
While Hill has these future plans, he still hopes to pursue football on a professional level.
“Yeah, of course I want to go to the NFL. It has been my dream to be a pro player since age 4,” Hill said.
Hill described a recent encounter he had with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and Jacksonville Jaguars.
“I recently ran a 4.35 40-meter in front of Tampa Bay and the Jaguars and they basically told me to just keep it up,” Hill said.
As far as his social life is concerned, Hill expressed how being the starting quarterback and the school’s location keep things fun.
“My social life, I love it. I’m the starting quarterback, it’s awesome,” Hill said laughing. “Plus I’m right in the middle of downtown so I’m never bored.”
