TCU wants Hill to return to swaggering self

Swagger. Quarterback Kenny Hill had it when he led Texas A&M to a 52-28 win over South Carolina to open the 2014 season that a conference network.

On that night Hill completed 44 of 60 passes for 511 yards and three touchdowns. But he later transferred to TCU, sat out a year, and took over as the starter for the Horned Frogs last season.

Though Hill completed the second-most passes in TCU history by hitting 269 of 440 passes for 3,208 yards and 17 touchdowns and led all Big 12 quarterbacks in rushing yards with 609, TCU ended the season with a 6-7 record.

Now TCU head coach Gary Patterson wants to see more of the Hill that didn’t miss a beat in replacing Heisman Trophy winner Johnny Manziel on that August night in 2014.

To help Hill get back there, he traveled to California to work with renowned quarterback coach George Whitfield during spring break. Hill continues to use what he learned months ago.

The quarterback said he and his teammates have been putting in the necessary work for a great 2017 season. The team begins workouts at 4 p.m. and ends with throwing sessions, he said, which is all done in an effort to get better.

In addition to working hard, Hill said the Horned Frogs must have the proper mindset and not change that, no matter what’s happening.

“I think not a lot of games start off hot,” he said. “When you go through lulls, you have to be consistent throughout entire games. We have to do our best to keep them to a minimum.”

The quarterback is confident TCU has what’s necessary to compete for a league championship.
