For two years Joe Hill sat behind other backs and waited his turn. When his time arrived in 2013, it lasted five games before injury sent Hill to the bench for the rest of the season. Not a big guy, Hill does offer good speed, elusiveness and has that hint of big play ability the Aggies will need in 2014.
Was an all-league selection as a senior at Fullerton High School in California after rushing for 1,756 yards and 30 touchdowns. Earned league offensive MVP honors and was a second-team All-Orange County selection as well.
Began his career in 2010 by redshirting as a freshman and then didn’t see the field as a redshirt freshman in 2011. His 2012 season saw Hill appear in all 12 games for the Aggies, including three starts. He finished his sophomore campaign with 269 yards and seven touchdowns on the ground.
In 2013, he started the first five games, recording 53 carries for 252 yards and a single touchdown before going down with a knee injury. He also proved himself a reliable receiver with 13 catches for 94 yards and another score.
He brings a ton of speed to the field to go along with good instincts in the running game and an ability to catch the ball out of the backfield. If Hill can come back healthy for 2014, he’ll be a playmaker for the Aggies.
