Hill Makes Most of Backup Role


By Kelly Burke, KBurke@wsiltv.com

CARBONDALE-- A.J. HIll has goals of one day becoming a high school football coach and teacher. For now, he's making the most of his college experience--both the good and bad. While he sees limited action on the field as the backup quarterback, Hill brings a positive attitude and example to the SIU locker room.

He's the only Saluki captain that's not a senior or a starter, and teammates have a great deal of respect for him. He tries to lead by example and says he prepares like a starter, just waiting for any opportunity that may come his way.
